Daily Reminder # 77

I had a post started for tonight, but I'm not feeling well, so I think for the moment I'll just post my gratitude list and go to bed early. If it feels right, I'll add my essay in the morning. If not, well, we can make the reminder the idea that flexibility is a virtue.... something like that...

Speaking of flexible.... decided to leave what I started for tomorrow or another day and instead will just post two short (sort of sad) poems for tonight.


Oh the solitude I seek
And have
And do not want
And can't escape
And cannot find.

- Katherine E. Rabenau

Seeker after blind dreams
And happy unrealities
Dreamer of dark scenes
In love with the shadows
My mind casts against reality
I cling for a few desperate moments
To you.

- Katherine E. Rabenau

Some things I'm grateful for today...

  • bed...
  • water
  • watermelon
  • being able to turn fans off
  • my washing machine
  • acai berry juice
  • cheese
  • bunnies
  • wordzzles contributors
  • Angel hugs
  • Tara head butts

I'm sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. Hope by the time you read this you'll be feeling better.
I love this Lament. Ever since I read 100 Years of Solitude I think of the word solitude a lot. I'm really relating to your words.

As I was reading I was listening to your friend Ellie singing. She has a beautiful voice.

Yes, indeed, hope you're feeling a bit more chipper today. I Like the sad poems, short and poignant.
