Middle-aged Maverick

For five days straight, I was a fitness guru. I was very conscious of everything I ate and very carefully planned out my meals and snacks. I drank water over sweet iced tea. And every day after work, I came home and without even arguing with myself about why I couldn’t, I laced up my tennis shoes and got on my elliptical. I kept my legs going no matter how high the resistance got on the pre-programmed routine I selected. Once I finished, I took a sweaty selfie and posted it proudly on Facebook. I began to feel a physical difference in my body. My husband mentioned something about my metabolism changing. Then, it all stopped.

I went to a conference with my principal and a fellow teacher. We had to stay overnight and because it was only one night, I mentally prepared for coming home the second day and…

Life and Random Thinking

I had had a non event day, nothing memorable, until I got the news.

eyeball,black and whiteA close friend had gone down to the inlet to swim in the ocean I knew and on the evening news the radio announced a drowning at that beach.

Dread gripped my heart, and I tried to phone and confirm if it was my friend, Mark.  I left messages, and my heart felt dry like paper.

Hours passed and I started to realize all the conversations I still wanted to have with him, especially one conversation where I told him he was like a younger brother to me, and I really liked to spend time with him, and that I loved him.

I felt real regret that I had never had that conversation.

Then the phone rang, it was him, and he was fine. Relief washed over me like a wave as I took a deep breath…

The Falling Thoughts

There are marks on my heart that I couldn’t show

My eyes are closed, but I’m still watching the show

I am sitting in the train and looking through the window

My surroundings are fast and my life is slow

They are talking loud but their self esteem is low

They look like adults but they still need to grow

A person who knows, will never say I know

People with little knowledge always sit in the first row

Life forces us to see what we don’t want to see

Slowly slowly we lose our shine and glow

One day we will become tired to kill our desire

It’s hard to pretend to others that you don’t know

People emphasize to go with the flow

To rebel against yourself  is your biggest  foe

When you are out of my reach I feel helpless

My heart stops beating and my blood…

random rants ruminations ramblings

“If you reveal your secrets to the wind,
you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees.”

I whispered my secret to the four winds

An eavesdropping cloud breezing past, picked it up and ascended heavenward

The wind carried it silently to the trees

Murmuring among themselves, the branches spread the word across the forest

A Momma's View

Because you can always only see the tip of the iceberg. But there’s so much more to us. There are so many layers to people, layers maybe not even our closest friends will ever see. We choose to show the parts of us, of our personality, we are comfortable showing. Everything else stays hidden.

The English Professor at Large

Where are the snows of yesteryear?  Where are the ethics of yesteryear? Where are the politicians of yesteryear?

Where is the dignity of FDR?

Where is the straight-forwardness of Truman?

Where is the intelligence of JFK?

Where is the charisma of Reagan?

(I’m giving both sides a voice).

What we seem to have now is  Who is King of the Hill?  Who can pee further? Whose are largest? little boy games.  And at the head of the slide on the playground is Billionaire Bully, the Ugly American. self-appointed emperor with no clothes.

Where is the common sense, let’s speak  rationally, let’s negotiate, let’s listen to the people and find ways to better the situation without resorting to mud pies, insults, and temper tantrums?

This our country and human beings at stake, not the playthings of Congress and all politicians.
