Blast From The Past . . .

The kids and I, mostly *I*, did some MAJOR cleaning a couple of months ago.  We purged so much stuff, I think they were worried they were next!  :)

It's amazing how easy it is to find stuff when there's a lot LESS stuff to go through!

I found an old journal I kept filled with poems I used to write.  Most of them are pretty cheesy.  Okay, ALL of them are pretty cheesy.  But it's still something fun to read.

I wrote this one in college.  The date on it is 9/21/89 so I would have just turned 19. 

Sitting alone in solitude
I ponder the events of the day;
As it slowly comes to an end
I realize all that I've lost.

Seeing the clouds forming overhead
I am reminded of how bad things have been;
Waiting for the cloud to burst
And for all the pain and suffering to be set free.

DAMN!  Talk about depressing!  Not sure what was going on at the time, but I OBVIOUSLY was upset about something!

Welcome back!

I think I have a book of poems around here some place too. I would be afraid to read them now.

Hope you're having a good summer

Thanks, it's good to BE back. I'm going to try to stick around this time! :)
Sounds like things have been crazy busy on your end as well. I'm just glad you're baby boy is doing better. Keeping you all in my prayers.

I went through about a year ago and purged all my old journals and poems. They were ALL depressing. I used to write only when life was too much to bear. But I didn't want my family to see them if I should die so I tossed them. I haven't missed them even once. ;o) I think it does help us, though, to write out our depressing thoughts, don't you?
