lack of words

my lack of presence

my lack of hope

my lack of time

my lack of energy

my lack of motivation

all leads to me not really making any progress on anything right now.

But, all that is listed does it ever really get noticed and maybe that’s the real

Leave Me A Link and I’ll Share Your Page!!

As most of my followers know I am big into helping other bloggers gain more exposure. My goal has been to grow a community of like-minded people and I am part way to my goal.  I am bringing back the open call to leave a link and I’ll share it for you!!

To get a reblog you must do the following:

  1. leave me a link to your page, and
  2. Share this post with your followers.


Each day I’ll randomly select 3 links to reblog.  I’m not sure it gets much simpler.  You can leave as many links as you want and I’ll cycle this post from day-to-day so more people can jump on board.

I let you pour it all over me so that you could not hear from me as I became the art piece I always wanted to be, at first glance you may feel that I am something to awe and wow at. 

But, sooner or later you will wonder why me and not you, this piece represents how messing life can get and yet show how there is still good things that come from it. 

 And that sometimes when it become such a mess you feel like you have no voice to share with anyone and so you choose to just be silent for the time being.

So much

to do that I thought if I just take the time to organize the things I may need soon would help clear my mind and help me create something unique again. 

As I looked back at the board of colors I just knew whatever it was that I was going to make would be so colorful it would just bring a smile to anyone and everyone’s face. 

I was thrilled to know that tomorrow I could be creating something new and beautiful if only the right colors would just pop out at me today.

so much!



don’t know what you just awoken inside of me when you smiled my way that day.

You couldn’t stop staring even if you wanted and yet you didn’t care about getting caught.

I know if it was someone else I would have thought of them as a creep and not welcomed in my space.

But, you I have known for so long that it took me by surprise when you admitted your feelings.

I  guess it’s been awhile and all I thought of was your acting strange but, I just didn’t see more when we just enjoyed spending time together and the jokes and laughter was just flowing between us.

We get closer and as the day begins to become the evening we start to lose the stream as it slowly comes to an end.

I still wonder now if those feelings will last and will I develop them too and how will I know its the right time to act on them.
