Right Now

Not younger than I am,
Nor more mature,
Appropriately fit for this
Body and Mind.
I wonder.
Is this when the poles change?
Next year will I fight to
Feel the strength of years previous,
Eventually giving up to
Cycle through the discussion again an again?
50 is the new 30.
Am I really 65?
82 and so tired.
93 and ready for dancing.
Right now, it feels about right, for now.
Now that that is done, have you stopped by lately and checked out the latest submission to Slob of the Month (SOTM)? Erin over at has just laid down the gauntlet for the July submissions. Crazy!
Also, I posted a short vid at vimeo of a recent outing. Spoiler! No fish shown. Just having fun with the cam and music.

  1. I always enjoy your site.

  2. Stinking Erin, getting her mug in everywhere. Now if she could just learn to write...HA. It would be nice if she spread an ounce of that creativity around for the rest of us to use. I love the poem by the way, similar thoughts plague me as time goes on.

  3. Thanks Mama Holman!

    Frontalis: I know! She is a rising star. Absolutely amazing. Thanks for stopping by :)

  4. Whoa dudes! You guys are awesome...and incredible writers. I'd say you both have quite a bit more than an ounce of that magical "creativity" dust. ;)
    David, you're really good with this video thing!

  5. E - I think Frontalis went fishing for a response from you. Looks like he got a bite : )

    I am having quite a bit of fun with the camera. I find I also like finding the right song just as much as the filming/editing. Either through words or melody there is a mood for each video and it is fun to pair the picture with sound.

  6. I don't know about fishing for a response. I feel like I've got some chops until I head over to Mysteries Internal and realize I'm a gibbering toddler. There's definitely a difference of styles, so maybe its comparing my bad apples to good oranges.

    Still, I love what you're doing over here, keep it up.

  7. I know exactly what you mean :)

  8. I've been told before that I am to nuanced, and don't make any, if you guys 'get' me...well... ;-)

    I love what you two are doing with your blogs and especially writing. Quality, and I look forward to both of your next posts. Always.
