365 Creativity Project-Day 119

Journal 5-7-20120001


This was not my place
I lived out in my own space
With a distinct home,
So I only visited
My Mom who was living here.

My fortunes then changed
I was displaced, my space lost,
In that troubled time
My Mom kindly took me in,
Gave my son and I a home.

For years I have lived
Upon this fine property
Enjoying the gift
Of the place’s loveliness
And Mom’s generosity.

This has now become
The location my heart longs
To return after
I have been another place,
It is my permanent home.

I am grateful:

1.   I did not have to go out today.
2.   I have a place to live.
3.   Mom is pleased with where I put the plant.
4.   I gave Hope a bath.
5.   Mom helped me clean out Hope’s ear.

I hope you had a good Monday. You can do something beautiful with your creativity if you try. Challenge yourself to accomplish at least one creative act this week.

Computers and the internet have brought us together. Share your thoughts with me in the comments.

    Beautiful photos Jo Ann. I like your reflections on “place.” Isn’t it wonderful when we have people who will take us in and share with us!

    The only thing I miss, or feel has changed with technology, is a slower pace. Communication wasn’t instant so there was no pressure to reply right away. Our language was slower (nothing had to be reduced to 140 characters) and therefore ideas seemed to blossom easier n the midst of a meandering conversation. Like you, I wouldn’t go back. Computers and smart phones have simplified my life even though they’ve sped the processes along.

    Have a wonderful day!

      Thank you, I am glad you like the photographs. My place in the world would be much diminished, but for the care of my Mom. I am so blessed.

      Technology has increased the speed of life. I am grateful for the connections it has enabled me to make. I miss the more personal communication I used to enjoy, but I am glad I have world wide friends now.

      Thank you for your comment.

      Jo Ann
