2015 Another Year Ahead

For me the year ended and began in the most delicious way. Sometimes just getting away for only a few days can clear the mind of cobwebs and improve your vision. I recently got back from a quick five day Caribbean cruise with my family.

While there were times I kicked up my heels up so high I thought I might die, I am actually invigorated. Two days back home and I already have accomplished a great deal. I am ready to plunge back into my writing, get items checked off my to-do list and make time for more fun before 2015 is over with.

I can only claim five of these kids as mine but the whole bunch is Grade A-1. Thanks for letting me share your little holiday with you.

If these kids are a sample of young America today I think our future will be in good hands. They will have a big job ahead of them but I really do think they are up to the task.

Carpe Diem! 

Age saw two quiet children
Go loving by at twilight,
He knew not whether homeward,
Or outward from the village,
Or (chimes were ringing) churchward,
He waited, (they were strangers)
Till they were out of hearing
To bid them both be happy.
"Be happy, happy, happy,
And seize the day of pleasure."
The age-long theme is Age's. 
Twas Age imposed on poems
Their gather-roses burden
To warn against the danger
That overtaken lovers
From being overflooded
With happiness should have it.
And yet not know they have it.
But bid life seize the present?
It lives less in the present
Than in the future always,
And less in both together
Than in the past.The present
Is too much for the senses,
Too crowding, too confusing-
Too present to imagine.
