Ponderings

So even though I haven’t posted in awhile, I have been jotting down some things on my phone to post later. So here is a jumble of random, unfinished ponderings I may or may not revisit later. Honestly, weird stuff just pops into my head sometimes, but just plopping it all down here.

Your doubts,
build a tower,
over your thoughts,
maybe it’s better to build a box.

Don’t stop here,
My weary dear.
Hang hope on who you want to be.
Your strength will keep.

Take the leap.
Take the leap.


Kill your darlings and the cats,
Throw the baby with the bath,
stretch, stretch the facts.


We are getting older,
we are getting wiser,
maybe we know better,
maybe you regret her.

I still love you laying here in the dark,
but I am waiting, I am waiting,
for that spark.


Hope is a rope,
I tie around my neck,
just for the heck of it.


I am getting older,
but I still don’t know a thing,
I’ve lived my biggest dreams,
but I always pull at the seams,
until it all falls apart on me.
I cannot seem to find serenity.


The leaves shaking, waving,
like rain coming down in sheets,
the space of serenity,
you and me between the trees.


There is no one around,
in this ghost town,
and it’s a lonely place to be,
with just my thoughts and me.

Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge

It’s been awhile since I posted! Eek! For the past couple of months, I have been writing and editing a mega 400-page health care policy manual and it has left me depleted. I have also been training for the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge during my free time.

The Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge is a one-day endurance event on September 15th that gives participants the opportunity to hike a 26.6 mile journey along the terrain of the Catoctin Trail in northern Maryland. Participants challenge themselves physically while raising much needed funds to grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses in the Mid-Atlantic region. The photos in this blog entry are of the Catoctin Mountains and of me doing a training hike with my dog.

I joined this hiking/fundraising event to help make dreams come true for those who deserve it most. Anyone who know me in real life know I am a total dreamer. I am always scheming up new goals to go after and achieve. I really want to be able to support others who have big dreams too.

If you want to support this important cause too, consider donating at http://www.kintera.org/i.asp?id=1178616-453313789.

Although I haven’t been posting much here, I have been writing offline and have lots of writing ideas so will be posting soon once I have more time!
