Just An Ordinary Word

Omelet Tostada

This is one of my creations in the kitchen. Mix eggs with seasonings and herbs of your choice. Cook 1/2 inch thick and round the size of a small skillet. Do not flip. Instead, cover with lid or foil to cook both sides. Instead of cooking your added ingredients into the egg, place fresh and uncooked ingredients over egg. Tomatoes, peppers, cheese, etc. If you would like melted cheese, place cheese over cooked omelet, as soon as the omelet is done, and let sit while covered for a while, before removing egg from skillet (stove/heat off). For meat toppings, cook meat separately from eggs and add with toppings. Top off with ketchup or hot sauce (optional). Enjoy!

I am not a person seeking fans. I do not write for others. I do not share for likes. This is not even about expression. When I take pictures or write something down, I do it for myself. I enjoy the time I spend creating. That time when boredom hides and emotions create. That time when thoughts turn into something more, and when burdens flee my side. This is my time. I cherish time. Time is the most valuable thing life has to offer, just as life is the most valuable thing this Universe offers. So, why bother to post at all? Why share my creations with anyone, when they were not meant to be seen, when created? Well, my deer audience, the answer is simple…

Once upon a time, I kept my creations all to myself. From poetry, to drawings, photography, and more. Projects made by hand and gifted to a select few, that is what started it all. People wanted me to share these things, that they found good. Although, aware of the term “good” being perspective, I thought to myself, “why not?”. Thus, little by little, I began to share. First, my photography. Then, my crafts. Now, my words. Perhaps, one day, I shall share more of my thoughts and creations, more of my ideas and inventions, and more of me. For now, I am but a single person, not seeking fame nor fortune.

I do not write for others; I do not share for likes. However, this does not mean I do not value my audience. I cherish time, yours as much as mine. You could have read something else. You could have stopped reading by now. Yet, you are still reading this verse. Thank you for staying. Thank you for your time. It is a blessing to have had your time and attention for this long. I hope I have not disappointed; I hope I do not disappoint. For your time, I offer this:

The wisdom of Heaven is love, the wisdom of Hell is happiness on Earth, and the wisdom of Earth is balance. For one to be wise, one must care to know more, learn from everything, and go through Heaven and Hell. The result is to be grounded on Earth, that is your peace and balance–that is your wisdom.

The Travellothoner

Passing through Canada, 2008

I wrote this in honor of my favorite blogger. In it, I reference a lot of his poems by title or I by quoting his work. If you enjoy my poems, I am sure you will enjoy his, I know I do. Give him a follow at thetravellothoner.wordpress.com to read about his travels, health, fitness, and poems.

Because you speak to me, I’ll speak to you.

I am the ‘Girl Who Thinks She’s Not Good Enough’.

You are right…’Failure’ doesn’t change me. And, “What’s done is done”, but it is so hard to move on.

I don’t like to abandon a soul, for I am the ‘Pure Heart’ you speak of.

I, too, “treasure friendship”, and your words have helped me so.

I am far from “normal”, but a “fighter”. “Fractured and hurt” as you describe.

Pass me a “shovel”, let me “dig inside” all of my “rubble”. Stubborn and all, I am ‘She’.

“You are my go-to” blogger, for ‘Eternity & Beyond’. Your writing is “perfect for me”.

I can sit here all day, referencing your words. “I hope this doesn’t seem too creepy”.

As I, too, have ‘The Wish’, it’s as the words were read from my mind…even down to the “hugs and kisses” ‘The New Year’ brought.

I may just be your ‘Kind Of Woman’. That is how oddly coincidental you speak to me.

In a funny way, you may be my ‘New Friend’. Even if I am not into fitness, with our poems we can relate.

This “little bird, learning to take flight” is also a ‘Grateful’ flower.

And, as I am ‘Sun Bound’, these words might be worth ‘The Wait’, like ‘A Drop Of Life’ in ‘The Rain’.

So, tell this ‘Unsung Hero’ ‘A Story’, whether ‘It Pains Me’ or not. For, I wish to keep seeing your ‘Many Masks’.

I cannot wait to continue to travel with you, this journey of words online. I am forever your fan.

“I can assure you that I am being sincere, when I say that I’ll always be near.” Ready to read whatever comes next…so, type on my friend!
