When I find myself alone:

Gather my crayons and color book!

Gather my crayons and color book!
I'm leaving home today.
My apple tree is full of blossoms
Softly bewitching my sight,
Oh, it's good to have such a delight!

I'm leaving home today.
To visit my favorite tree.
The tree is growing just like me,
Its bark is bursting at the seams.
Oh, it's good to sit with these daydreams!

There’s sap oozing escaping its seams.

What's this? A tiny, green worm,
inching its way to my book
I see it has set its course
on the flower near the babbling brook!
Oh, it's good to have such a good look!

Oh, what a special place I’ve found.

My color book is on my lap.
Crayons hanging in a bag.
My feet against the tree trunks,
My back eased.
Oh, it's good to be so pleased!

My worm leaves, a pattern of holes

I've run away from home
To the birds, butterflies, worms.
They know where I am and find interest in me.
A butterfly is not too busy to land and say hi.
Oh, it's good to be gentle and shy!

As I begin to color, I add some shadings
And then I add kitties and doodles of joy.
I draw my family sitting with me in the tree.
We hang out and laugh, and sing, we are free!
Oh, it's good to leave home today!

…. and I’m glad to return home, I might say!

World Changes One Step At A Time 👍

According to news media, we don’t always change the world for good.

  • We don’t change things for good when we war against what we want changed. It just doesn’t work! Wars usually create more trouble than good: war against drugs, war against climate change, war against poverty, war against racism, etc. We sometimes focus so forcefully on what we don’t like, we inflate our problem for ourselves and others.
  • Also, I don’t think we change what we don’t like by making people afraid. We get people’s attention by means of fear, but we don’t change the lifestyle of people we are scaring. We create focus on what we are afraid of, like building walls around countries, or locking up people we are afraid of, or even killing people we fear. Fight or flight. It seems like news stories consistently ignite human fear.

The solution is simple!
We can solve challenges, make changes, in a more calm, peaceful, loving way!

I tell myself: Changes are made in MY world, by MY perspective!

  • I strive to live a peaceful life regardless of any person, place or thing.
    • A better way to say this:
      • I CAN live in a peaceful world, when I AM LIVING A PEACEFUL LIFE!

I have been groomed, reformed, refined, reprimanded, chiseled, quieted, asked to speak up, asked to change my mind, told I am naive, until I have felt it hard to sing my song!

Sing a song, keep it simple, keep it strong. Sing of good things, not bad. Sing of happy, not sad. (Song I remember from the Carpenters).

So here it is. I primarily work in collaboration with myself.

I delight when I see other humans who share this intuitive understanding. We often pass along our way and acknowledge the other.

Our world does change one step at a time. It changes in ways we like when we allow the change we want into our own life.

To Sum Up: Here is a poem I came across yesterday on Facebook.

My grandmother once gave me a tip:

In difficult times, move forward in small steps.
Do what you have to do, but little by little.
Don't think about the future
or what may happen tomorrow.

Wash the dishes.
Remove the dust
Write a letter.
Make a soup.

You see?

Advance step by step.
Take a step and stop.
Rest a little.
Praise yourself.
Take another step.
And then another.

You won't notice, but your steps will. grow more and more.
And the time will come when you can think about the future without crying.

Home, Sweet Comfort Home

There’s no place like home. These gifts bring home along, no matter where you go. ….feel good products.

The painting scene came from a one-of-a-kind, stucco home just west of the neighborhood drug store. It held an magical surprise for me whenever I passed on the way to school. And, I always glanced into the windows of the house to discover the occupants.

It felt like home, sweet home.
