That word...

Yes, I did it. I used a word on live radio that I knew was not correct term. It was more slang and most often slang can be the insulting version of the correct word. For instance not many Police Officers like to be called Cops.
I am sure you are waiting to hear my word, so here it goes. I can't believe I have to say it again.... Bum! Yes I used that word instead of Homeless. I did not even realize it until my sharing host said something to me during our break. I was mortified! How could I have done that, I was speaking nicely about how I helped the homeless person. I wasn't sure whether I should bring it up again and apologize, I mean we had already moved onto the rest of the show. Do I act like nothing was said, I wondered if it was muffled or clearly heard. CLEARLY heard she told me. Oh great. It has been eating me up for days, not because I used it. But because I didn't explain behind it that it is the word I use when I see a homeless person and I have dedicated myself to work on using the proper word. Because if shoes were to change feet I would want the same respect.

It's Friday

It's Friday and there is always a racket of thunder roaring through the halls, the vibe of employee walks seems to be a bit more upbeat, is it the weekend plans, are we just thrilled to get away from the 9-5 land, at what point on the weekend do we dread returning again, who said we had to hate Mondays and love Fridays, what do the people love that work half days, what excites the mother that stays at home or the man who is teleworking from the comfort of his man cave, what is the thrill about good ole Fridays, I'm not quite thrilled at the moment, rather pissed that i woke up at 6am and i guess that Friday vibe hasn't hit me yet, cause I'm in that 8am zone of staring at the clock and wondering how long the tick will tock just to get me to 5pm, or wait i forgot today I'm leaving early, so maybe a thrill has shivered up my spine, arched my back and made my chair incline, you aught to know I'm not going to get anything done from this angle

A Nightmare of a Dream.... the highlights of life

I had a dream last night, it is too personal to share, but I wrote about it in poetic and outrage form. It was amazing, I sent it to a friend who is a poet also and she replied to it with powerful words. Have you ever exhaled so many words only to turn and take them all back in, filling your mind enough to cloud any area of doubt that this was the end of pain. I feel amazing, thankful for a dream that I turned nightmare when I rose with an gasp. 
My hair was a mess today because of it, for I could not stop thinking about it as I prepared for my day. I couldn’t even look myself in the mirror without saying “stop thinking about it”. It wasn’t until I had enough of self talk that I decided to let it go and I did, we did. I see now why God places certain people in our lives at certain times. I needed my poet friend today, no one else would have created words so powerful. They hit my eyes so hard that they began to shed water, isn’t that amazing, to release water from your eyes to wash away everything that once made them cry. 
I saved it, the writings we did today. I want to take them further, maybe place them in the book that I have been writing for a year now. I love taking my time with writing, had I rushed I would have messed a very important word….. Freedom

"A poets mind can wrap around assignments with great delight in allowing the use of words to transform thought... I was prepared to waist space in my journal and think about things that I needed to break from, like every day life and just be free to rotate around an assignment that made me silence my mind long enough to educate"

Writer's Time

I don't know whether to call it procrastination or writer's block, so I decided to make it sound great and I call it writer's time. It when I take that long break of not writing anything in my blogs/websites. I hope it doesn't discourage you from visiting time to time. I don't do it on purpose, but I have learned that my best time to write is when I write. That may not make sense but it fits my journal.

"Leave me alone, not lonely, but alone to wallow in my guilt and surf on my cloud nine, my script is best ink when my mind is sound enough to letter, but crazy enough to untangle, the alphabet is full of straight and crooked letters, and I use them all"

"Pretty is a definition to be redefined, I see so many make-up faces, yet pretty isn't any of them"

"A room full of journals may tell many things... one, life is amazing... two, life is ruff... and three, we all live it"

"The mint bit the bite of her breath, exhaling more than smell, but solitude of air"
