Poetry

In honor of Valentines Day I am posting some of my favorite pieces of poetry.  By no means is this a complete list but it is some of the best of the best.  I hope you have a wonderful Valentines Day and can spend it with someone you love and who loves you in return.

If You Forget Me by Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.

If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart wh…

Technology

You have got to love technology.  It's a blessing and a curse at times.  Case in point, I have no idea how I came to be following my own blog but there I am, a follower.  Well, I guess I will follow me.  I sure hope I like following.... *Laughs*





Since I'm following my own blog I needed some eye candy.  Yummy!

Dreams

“You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, 'Why not?'” ~~ George Bernard Shaw
Do you remember when you were a kid and dreamed of being a ballerina or a fireman? Then twenty years later you pass a fire truck or go watch a ballet and think, what the heck happened to my dreams?
What did ever happen to our dreams? More than likely they began to slip away as we grew older and focused more on friends, school, growing up kind of stuff but I bet somewhere along the way we heard our dreams were crazy.  Somewhere along the way we started believing we should not dance to the beat of a different drummer.

How many times do we ourselves focusing on the negative instead of the positive? How many times do we tell ourselves we are grownup’s now with responsibilities and so we don’t have time to dream? I know I use to do this very thing.  I dreamed of being a writer and was discouraged by some, encouraged by others but the discouragement far outweig…
