Winter Fun - Poetry Friday ...



SKIING

In all sports, you need to have an open mind
Traveling down mountains, thinking you’re one of a kind

Your patience is dwindling, you may want to cry
Your friends are outstanding, it pushes you to try

A sign in the distance, for a beginner’s trail
Thinking you might take it, rather than fail

Black diamonds mean, danger for all
Beginners sticking to easier trails, not to fall

Skiing along you take the wrong turn
The next run down, you will certainly learn

You head to another lift to settle all fear
Confidence kicks in and you do not have a care

Carefully shifting from side to side
Assuring yourself to save your own hide

Trying another trail, this is the real test
With trails behind you, you want to look your best

You reach the bottom of the hill with a smile
and your friends say, I like your style

Old Saint Nick ...


This year I decided to go with "Old Saint Nicholas" Christmas Cards. I have always like the feel of "Days Gone By". My folks have told me of a song entitled, "Born Too Late" - I love the music, fashion and movies from years past. I feel like "An Old Soul" ...

What type of Christmas Theme have you decided on this year? Yesteryear? Modern? A tree with white lights and white ornaments? Or an old fashioned tree with many ornaments? I would love to hear from you ...

Whimsical Wednesday & Christmas Wishes ...



During this Christmas Season I know a few families that are having a very difficult time. I would like to put out "My Christmas Wish" to those families in need. I would like to ask for their lives to return back to normal. I would like them to feel whole again. If I could ask for anything this year, I would want this most of all. What is your Christmas Wish?

Music Monday with Paul Simon ...



Simon & Garfunkel ~ Bridge Over Troubled Water ~ The Sound of Silence ~ 13 Grammy Awards ~ 
The Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame

Yes, I am speaking of Paul Simon. 
He has been a favorite of mine for many years.
If I hear one of his songs on the radio, I cannot pass it by ...
He has no many songs that make me want to get up and dance ...
Cecelia ~ Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes ~ Graceland ~ Kodachrome ~ Loves Me Like a Rock
And
Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard ... 
His Graceland CD is one I can listen to over and over again ...

What musician do you find yourself going back to?
