Till Death do us part

  I work with elderly people and I am fortunate to see many old couples that are still happily married and still trying to live at home. The place that I work at allows me to work within the community and visit these homes to assist people where...

Dream Lover

I am thankful that I have found my live Dream lover. It took some 34 years, but we found each other. Deb and I have been married for 9 years now and I am grateful that we found each other.   We wake and talk about our dreams, no matter how...

Thinking outside of the square

  Once upon a time………………when I went to high school, there was this one fellow who was a master at arm wrestling. He was a year younger than me, but he could beat the seniors and some very strong lads. I came to know this fellow, his name was...

They whom dare to dream

  Thinking back to the earlier days when people were told the Earth was flat and you would sail off the edge of the world. The church dictated as to what was right and wrong. Fear was used as a controlling factor. Any one that challenged “the...

Teenage Dilemma

I wrote this little poem...actually, I started singing it. It started as a song and changed it into a poem. Teenagers can be difficult at the best of the times....especialy when they are asked to help around the house....all of a sudden, they are...

Christmas - A time for some to feel lonelier than ever

  For some of us, we are very lucky to be surrounded by family that love us and we can share special moments. We know that we are loved and we can embrace those we hold dearly. On the flipside, there are people that don’t have any family, have been...

Our bodies are timeline maps of our lives

  I was looking at my hands and saw a few old scars and marks. We get so used to our bodies that we just ignore these old healed wounds. I started thinking that these old scars and burns etc., map out a timeline through out my life and every one of...

See beyond the words

Not all of us are perfect typers nor do we spell words correctly at times......but that shouldnt take away from the message that they are trying to communicate. There are some that "NEED" that comma to fall in the right place, or for the sentence to...

Little sayings

  We all have a few catch phrases or little sayings that may blurt out from time to time. I do warn you in advance that these are a bit rough and crass at times. Some of the ones that I love to use are:   ·         “Back to back they faced...

The late night performer

  We all have heard about the phantom of the opera, I loved the musical, still have the vinyl.    I have heard of a story about a man that used to recite poetry and practice various plays or drama that he had created and used to perform these...

WTF

  Unusual to start my ramblings this way but bugger it, we are all human. I am amazed at how often people can talk without really saying anything at all. Here’s an example for you….. and this is an actual conversation or rather “statement” that was...

Funeral plan ads

  Through an average day during peak times on T.V there are constant ads for funeral plans. These will appear on every ad in-between peoples shows that they regularly watch.    I work with the elderly in their homes in the community and they...

A shark's perspective

  I love Australia, great beaches and most of the population is based around the coastline. Which means……they love to swim. We know that they know that we are out there but still the cheeky buggers try to tease us. Out of the water they may be top...

Instant Gratification

  When I look around I see a lot of youths wanting instant gratification.   “Could you pay me now and I “promise” that I will mow the grass when I get home”.   Sure enough, the parent gives them the cash, they go off and have a good...

Escape

When I was 15 I finished school and started working, often, I was working away from home with out friends or family and I was away for months at a time. These were lonely times, sure, i made friends, but missed family and friends deeply. I was a...

Emotional growth

  Childhood, teenager, adulthood, middle aged and elderly cycles of life. Relationships formed with friends and partners, “enemies” that we encounter along the way. All of it moulding and working towards shaping us into the person we are today. ...

There's always an................and...................but

You make a generalised statement, maybe you are ticked off at the time or maybe you just put it out there as a statement and someone may say or write...Yes, BUT............ There are always going to be two sides (or more) to a story and it will depend...

Arguments - Battles of wills

Many times we all have arguments through out our lives with someone or another......it happens, thats just a part of life. I saw this young couple out in town and they were a reasonable way from me, but I could see the body language and they were...

Angels amongst us

  We view angels as these celestial beings that don wings and halo’s.   Some of these beings actually walk amongst us as fellow human beings. We may walk past them without even a side glance, unbeknown to us.   Right about now, I can...

When did “Free” change ?

  As a kid I remember the Butcher giving me a  Frankfurt for free. In fact, I didn’t even ask for it, he just gave it to me and I thanked him. Now that, was free, no fine print, no sales pitch, free. These days, we see “FREE” and we think, “where’s...

Pigeon holed

  Man must classify everything and file it neatly into a “pigeon hole” or a certain category. It is a way to understand something and to make everything totally clear.   However, in this world, there exists many things that cannot be...

Fluttering Thoughts

  Where do I start? Grabbing thoughts is a bit like catching butterfly’s in a net. You can see it floating around but you have to chase it, swing a few times before you catch it.   I guess the mind numbness is a way of not feeling...

Total act of defiance

This picture has always tickled my fancy. I love it. He's going to die, it's inevitable, he stands his ground with finger raised. I can only guess that his last words would be "I hope I give you stomach cramps and Gastro you bastard."   ;) ...
