Monday Morning Gratitudes

That we can remember those gone on before us.
That I had a godly heritage
That God helps me to live a good life for him.
For the knowledge that another saint made it home.
For guiding the surgeon's hands in the liver transplant of a friend
That he kept me from broken bones when I fell
That he kept my friend Grace from hurting herself when she tripped

On Passionate Writing: Life

We write to taste life twice:
in the moment
and in retrospect.

--An Ais Nin

What a beautiful thought.
Writers, with their imaginations
that can take them anywhere:
New Zealand
or an island.

Into different worlds--
like outer space
or back in time.

I can be a detective
or chef
maybe a famous ice skater
or ballet dancer.

I can be a brave bear hunter,
a fierce Viking
or even a King.

All I need to do is write.
I can, therefore, live twice.
Or more.
