Inspire Me, Tell me do

Sunday! Sunday!
Where would the week be without you?
It would just be another one of the six days, wouldn't it?
That is the sound of the music playing in my head. Tonight.
Because, Sunday!

This morning, my @c0ff33a coffee and I were sitting together doing a scroll-through of the posts. It happens often, somehow reading goes better with a little bit of @c0ff33a coffee.

Today is a #BeautifulSunday by @Ace108, where we share our day in the most possibly beautiful way that we can. I find myself back home again, after spending the day at the shore and I will finally call it a day, a definitely #SublimeSunday in the making, by the Meister of my morning, @c0ff33a. I do love my @c0ff33 and he likes eclectic! A definite match, made in heaven.

Tomorrow, when I see the beauty of a new day
I want it to cover me with a blanket of your memory
So I can tell you once again
I love you, knowing full well
As always, it will be true

I can see the flower blooming in your heart ❤️
The loveliness of you never escapes me, how can it?
For you are you, this is always true
And I can gaze upon you, always and a day
If I may?

I stopped at the World War ll Memorial on the way home from the Shore House. It is here among the monuments that I can hear some of the greatest speeches that I have ever heard. How can one not be touched when one has the opportunity to hear the thoughts of someone they admire? I need to find one of those once again. I feel so uninspired of late. Inspire me with your words. They never fall upon deaf ears. Tell me. Tell me. Tell me do.

The guard-cat was on the job again. I should be paying her double time - at least.

All I have are my words, armed in my mind, written in pen, stand by stand. Oh, yes. Still by hand. It has a different feel. Altered not by keys, backspace, and delete, I write, erase, tear it to pieces and start all over again. And again.

It’s my way. I walk out to the deep end of the page and dive right in.


Never forget the joy in what you’re doing, even the simplest things, making the most of every experience, making all of your moments count for something. As always, keep on singing that song!! And just like that, this post is done. Thank you for stopping by and saying hello, leaving your words behind... and just so you know, although much sun and shine were used up today, I can guarantee that there is still a little left in my heart. Have a most fabulous day! Hive on! That never gets old!

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost

Do @dswigle, you are an inspiration now you seek me to tell you to do, so get back on your feet and keep on showering us, me with your flowers and beautiful words.

Find that solace again, it's normal to be uninspired, you still keep me inspired after reading this piece.

So tomorrow would cover you, thanks.

I love the Robert frost peom. I have written poetry my whole life but I havent read into much poetry. I have to check him out.

Do you belong to any poetry communities? I am kinda a noob and I'm not sure how posting poetry to communities differ from posting them to your feed.

Anyways lol, that was a random thought, but I do think people deserve to be thanked when they put beautiful pieces out..

So thanks for that.

I hate to say no, but, I don't belong to any. I just post it to my own feed and it seems to do okay. I would love to look around at some communities, but, I have so much going on, I don't want to join a community I don't have time for.

I love Robert Frost.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your words.

Wow. Thank you, Dan. I never think of my posts that way, but, you just made my day! I appreciate it. Now, to catch up! No computer and my phone overheated today. The universe wants my gadgets back!

I hope you are having a great day!

I'm so glad I did this, I've long wanted to say something but you didn't really believe me until now.
I hope the issue with your gadgets has been resolved. We are so attached to them.

I went three months without a phone. I actually was fine with it. :) That was less than two years ago. You know my computer broke before and I do need it to pay bills and the like. I like the technology, but, when they break, I take the opportunity to be without and free.

Now, I must get on top of my MarketFriday posts! Between my gadgets and my sister being in the hospital, time was not mine. Today, I can breathe a little easier.

I found myself getting attached to the phone and other gadgets. I try to have a healthy balance without being out of step.

What did you do for your birthday???

Oh, Denise! I'm trying to understand. First of all, I must say I'm sorry your sister is ill. I realize it's hard for you too and I'm ashamed that I was complaining about much lighter problems.

I have started to use the money earned here. I know everyone is looking for more voting power and expecting Hive to reach high values, consequently many here will be very rich..., but what if that doesn't happen? The younger ones have time to wait, but no one knows how long. So I took a few holidays paying with Hive and paid off some debts. Unfortunately, this year is off to a bad start for me and I may need everything I've saved up here. That would be very bad, it would probably mean the end of me here and I hope it doesn't happen, I don't know yet...

What do I mean by that? My opinion is (please forgive me for thinking I can give advice) that it is good to indulge from time to time and not hesitate to use the money earned for small pleasures or needs.

I think you are absolutely right! I feel guilty saying when I use some of the money for small pleasures, but, that is why we all work so hard, yes? The money earned here is ours to use how we see fit. I never power it down because I have other streams of cash that flow. It is fortunate for me, but, If I didn't have it, I would definitely use this.

You shouldn't be ashamed of saying things. I never feel that way about you. We all have to bellyache once in a while, it feels good to get it all out. My sister is ill, that is true, most of it is caused by her lifelong addiction to smoking. :( She is getting treatment, but, the damage caused will not get better, but, she can take care of what she has left. It is just hard to watch.

Even if you power it all down, you can still post here, although it may not be what you want to do. I feel like you still have stories inside of you. I personally never tire of them, but, of course, I respect whatever you do. I still have your email. I am not worried you will disappear. :)

This year is a bad year for you? I didn't know that! I am so sorry to hear this. I hope Magda is feeling better as I know it was a slow go in feeling 100% for her.

I like the way you think! Life should be enjoyed! I am not ashamed to say that I do! :)

"Life should be enjoyed!" I'm so glad you're doing this, Denise. I try too, often it works for me, but there are still many things that stop me. I don't want to complain now.

It's hard for me to read about your sister. I too know what this addiction to smoking means and how harmful it can be. Once again I wish her all the best!

I hope it's not that bad though and I don't have to destroy the whole HP. See, I made a correlation between HP and the number reflecting reputation. When I saw colleagues with high reputation and very low HP I thought they got their reputation artificially, you know you could in the past with bots. Now I realize that for most it actually meant a need for money, a problem that arose in their lives. It's only when you're in a similar situation that you learn to pay more attention and understand better.

I am now in great lack of inspiration, I still don't know what I'm going to write for #marketfriday..., I'm searching, searching.
All the best, dear Denise!

Yes. Many high reps/no SP calls for a power down.Some have bought crypto with it, others, a financial need. That is what we earn for, yes? The truth is, my sister will never get better, but she can take care of the health she has got. She is more positive about keeping it better.

Please dont worry about Market Friday. I know your heart and sometimes it is just not in the cards that day. Thanks, Dan! @bluemoon i hope whatever is going on in your life, it sorts itself out. Be well.

Double pay!! I think every house has one of those - um - guard cats. We have five cats but only one of those varieties! Even the children call him "Fat Cat" and ask him why he is so lazy! On the flip side, he's the most loveable and cuddly.

Loved your second photo Denise. It almost tempts me to hop on a plane and join you for that cup of coffee!

Haha! Fat Cat sounds about right! :) She is loved the most too, loveable, purrrrable, and who doesn't love to be cuddled?

What a life, yet? I don't even make mine get her own supper. She gets it served to her.

Le sigh.

We have spoiled these furry felines and I am not sorry! LOL

That sounds about right as far as felines go! Oh ours has to fetch his! BUT!!!! He wants it freshened every five minutes! If he even thinks another cat thought about eating it then he waddles over to tell us to give him new food.

If ever a person wants to be both entertained and rallied by anything in WWII, one needs only to listen to Winston Churchill's speeches.

Your cat has earned her treats today.

Yes! Yes! I have heard recordings of his speeches. I will say that my great grandfather loved him and even in his nineties, would parrot him. Sometimes I feel like all the good men are gone, but, it is not true, I know it.

Perhaps the ones from yesterday were romanticized whereas today, not so much? I am not sure, but, I find myself longing for times that I am not even a part of, if only for the feeling of the moments.

My cat is such a purring furball, but, alas, I love her. :)

Oh, I agree. People used to sound smart and intelligent. Now we have soundbites. Men used to have a room in the house they called a 'study.' Men today have a room in the house they call a 'mancave' and they grunt at the tv while watching football.

Oratory was a skill that used to be taught. We do not teach our children how to speak eloquently anymore. Poetry needs to be forced upon children and novels are either skipped, studied via Cliffnotes, or ingested by movie. I do not want to say that we're raising a society of miscreants, because that certainly isn't true (look at our advances in sciences and computing), but our communication skills and charismatic offerings are definitely not what they once were.

Ahh dear Ds, whenever I cartwheel into your blog for a perusal I swear I leave with a whimsical, doofy smile and a rejuvenated spirit. There’s warm words, pensive thoughts about a majestic memorial, and a guard kitteh! Love kittehs and visuals but love you more!

Hope your Monday was as sublime as the Sunday:)

Awwww KitKat, you know I love you bunches and bunches. I used to love cartwheeling and one day, the spoke was broken and it just wouldn't happen. It took me weeeeeeeeeks to fix it and now, I can cartwheel with the best of them, until one day, once again, it will break again.

It is such a hoot when you come calling. I will get my lazy self over there, once I catch up. No, I will have to do it before, the catching up is a not happening thing!

Thanks for the visity! Blows kisses!

Those darn spokes! We need a spoke repair kit so we can get right back out there and cartwheeling again! Cause the thing is, it seems like the breaks take longer to mend these days lol!

My dear Ds, you are anything but lazy! I love it when you wander onto the blog lawn, but there's no hurries or worries required🥰

Hope your morning has been beyond splendid!
