A Thought Blank


As a sheer white piece of paper.
Sitting, waiting, wanting.
In anticipation of the coming.
What will, might, should happen.


As a blaring white screen.
Blinding eyes and blinking bar waits.
For the words sure to come.
The words were suppose to come.


A mind that refuses to function.
To conjure, imagine and expound.
To create a masterpiece of work.
A failed attempt of inspiration.


As these walls that stare back.
Unwilling to release, relent and give in.
To help out an old friend.
Instead they stare in silence.


As the sky through a window.
Still, cold and lonely.
Nothing moves in fear of change.
There is no noise of any kind.


As a canvas on an artists easel.
white, blank and empty.
Lonely without her clothing of paint.
It cries for lack of love.

My mind cries.

Such a Thing as Work or Too Much?

Is there such a thing as working too much? Some would most likely immediately shout out "YES!" to this ridiculous question. In my present state of mind at the moment, I would probably follow suit and say "yes" as well. Although give me about 12 hours and some good sleep and I will most likely end up back at saying "No, there is never such a thing as 'too much work'."
Recently I have been keeping track of how much I am exercising and eating and have come to the realization that I'm not eating enough. I know you might be thinking sarcastically, "Yeah right". Every day a person is suppose to be consuming Two Thousand (2000) calories and the calories that you burn you are suppose to put back in. Daily activities that you might not think much of are burning off those calories your body needs to burn fat. If you aren't consuming the calories your body needs every day and then burning them off, it stores up the calories that you do eat. Your body is then going to think its in starvation mode and start packing on the pounds.
I realized that with how much I am eating each day isn't enough to keep up with what I do every day. Like most people I wasn't thinking much of the things I do all the time. Getting up and working 2 hours in the morning for instance. I learned that every morning at work I have been burning around eight hundred (800) calories. That is just the beginning of my day! Sure there are some days I don't do much, but there are other days that I go ninety to nothing and never thought anything of it. I am glad I finally came to this realization. I can now fix my short comings in my diet and have more energy.
Today my mom and I have been trying to De-weed our garden in 100 degree weather. All either of us feel like doing now is just sleeping. The garden really needs to to get the weeds out though, so mom is extremely determined to get it done and I am just along for the ride (chuckles). So if any of you feel like getting out in 100 degree weather and pulling weeds, feel free to call and see if you want to help at 1-800-Pul-Weed and I'm sure someone will answer unenthusiastically, our guarantee to you!
I hope you all are having a nice and cool week and I pray you have a wonderfully cool weekend!

Filtered Light Found Dreams

Find me here in filtered light.
Where life trickles slowly in.
I've lost all of the past.
Seeping away with the warming sun.

Find me in a deep sleep.
Where dreams take over this reality.
I've given in to it's pull.
Time to say goodbye for now.

Find me in this drawn out dream.
Where nothing is what it should be.
I've never felt so confused and lost.
Has this become my new reality?

Find me knocked on the ground.
Where it's come to blows.
I've lost once again.
"Wake me if your out there"

"Find me" I shout, but not.
Where is the words now gone?
I've found there is no voice there.
Words lost in a fuzzy reality.

Find me in filtered light.
Where trees sway with my light breathing
I've been sleeping for awhile.
Anaware of another's presence.

"Fine me" I say softly.
Where did my voice come from?
I've been gone so long in another reality.
You've awoken me.

"Find me" I say now.
Where have you been all my life?
I've been so lost until now.
Till you opened my eyes and said.
"I've always been by you."

Time for Change

I love how the title can mean so many different things. You could be going, "Is she changing something in her life?" or, "Is she going to do something crazy like cut her hair off??" or even, "Is she going to write about never using change when she buys things?" Well that last one is true, I almost never use change. Which actually is pretty cool because I have this jar where I throw all my loose change I've collected. Then when it gets full I take it to the bank and turn it into cash and...VOILA!....I have money. Although I always had the money just sitting there I'm just too stubborn, or lazy, to ever use it.

I am not writing a blog about my quirk of not using change, even if its extremely fascinating to you for some odd and unknown reason. No I am not writing about that kind of change. I actually am just talking about the change up of the look of my blog. Let me tell you, it was getting old looking at the same look for so long. Just another weird quirk of mine..I know...I'm odd like that.
So really I was just curious about the opinions and if I should add another more to my blog.

As you can see I added different pages. I can't believe it took me so long to figure out how to add different pages, but I finally have! I figured it would me easier for those of you who are following along with "Quest of the Fair Unknown" and also easier to get to the character list then having to go back and find the post. Also keeps my "Home" page free for just my Poems and random posts.

Anyway, I was just curious about some feedback. Let me know what you think and if I should do anything more.
