  1. The older and less-able I get, the more I am impressed by (and cherish) my wildly limitless imagination–it seems a nearly palpable entity, my fine companion everyday.

  2. Thank you for liking my poem “Words of War” today. Coming from you, it’s a great honour.

  3. OH wow! My Pa had Alzheimer’s and had suffered a stroke where he could not speak. I knew he was trapped in his mind. So I read his hunting stories back to him. He could still nod his head and always wanted to hear them read to him. Once I read his bear hunting story to him and then left for dinner and when I came back his nurse said, “I went in to check on your Pa like I always do when you leave and he was awake and I said, Dan how are you tonight and I swear he said, Bear hunting.” Yep! My Pa was hunting in his mind I love that I knew that although his body had him trapped his mind could still hunt. I hope you don’t mind me sharing this. I saw this and saw what you wrote and it stopped me like still! Wow! This is so cool! I don’t ever get to share that story. Having your Pa lose so much well you sort of forget the good things and the funny things and remember the end! OF course I started blogging to deal with his death and my girl chronic lifelong illness. But it has become so much more and I love that Star shared your link! I work so much that I don’t get to visit all the blog I love! Yours is one of them. 😀 Have a super night!

      • Oh wow Paul! They did! With Father’s day coming up I have been avoiding it and it’s amazing how you can only hold back for so long and those memories yearn to be shared I think! Your writing is beautiful. I’m sorry I don’t get to visit as often as I like! Be blessed and Happy Father’s Day!

  4. I do believe I am going to start using this as one of my life values. How to put such a (seemingly) complicated conundrum into a few short poetic words of wisdom is beyond talent. There is a ted talk by a disabled Australian woman, I will try to find the link to her Facebook page as I think she would absolutely love this! ❤

  5. Very few words yet it has said more than an essay. I read it several times and each time I did, I get a new understanding. I really love this one and thanks for always liking my poems, it is a big encouragement.
