a beautiful soul…

There is this soul
who is beautiful air
a gentle teacher
a willing student 
whom has shown 
love and kindness 
my soul is filling 
because of his pathway
his belief
his beauty 
his pain
his name…

I am grateful


My afternoon into evening…

Part 1

I knew before I arrived I would run into him. Funny that I should think that as I was getting ready to leave home for work… Such a silly thought considering    I almost never see him, yet today I felt I would. My intuition seems to be heightened lately… Not sure why but I sometimes its unexplainable. I walked into work and there he was sitting at the computer desk. (What woman wouldn’t notice him though; perhaps one that is no longer alive between her thighs 😳). My co worker smiled, said she and he were waiting for me to arrive. They wanted to asked how I did something. I giggled being that he is the IT guy…he just fixes complicated things though. I showed him and we laughed at the simplicity of it.  He almost had it figured out but was grateful I showed him the rest of the way.  As we walked down the hall we talked about how google and youtube were saving us time and frustration, changing the way we learn. I could feel him watching me. Like he was examining me in microbursts. Everytime I run into him I get the feeling he wants to say more…like a hesitation hanging. So young, so polite, so good looking! I am sure he is making some young beautiful girl very happy! 

Part 2

He was a man in the age range of 85. Just out for a a quick stroll after his dinner. thought he swing on by, take a short cut through the reception area.  He asked if i liked Popeyes chicken. And proceeded to tell me that the new building had opened its doors today. He said they have cajun spices and if you didnt like cajun spice you’d  pobably not like their chicken. He said his favorite was going to chic fil a and that they were building a free standing restaurant on the otherside town. No longer will he have to go into the mall but will be able to enjoy the ease of drive-thru. He said you use to see a service station on every corner but now their seems to be a mexican restaurant on every corner. I told him that is because tacos are one of the best foods ever (love 🌮🌮🌮 tacos). He agreed with me and said that’s what was served for dinner in  the dining room tonight. The phone rang and he waved goodbye to me as I answered the phone. Even though the entire conversation was about food, there was such an easiness about us talking. Like we had done it a thousand times before! I love moments such as this one.  It is when you realize how some people just connect so easily. I smiled more tonight! And dammit if tacos aren’t on my brain now!!


Part 3

it was time for me to go home and there she was. In the hallway in her wheelchair reaching  out her hand towards me.  I grabbed it and held her fragility in my hand. So soft was her skin I was afaid my hand would scratch her. She looked at me with beautiful baby blues, little red-rimmed and teary. My heart just warmed by her. I told her I was on my way home. She said she didn’t want me to leave. I didn’t want to leave her.  I wanted to sit there with her in the deafening silence just holding her hand.  As if both our hands understood how lonely both of us have been. In that precious moment she was mother, daughter, sister, woman, and friend to me. I could have stayed awhile to give her my love and quiet contemplation. I could have told her my secrets and know that she would understand. I wanted to stay and tell her about “him”! I wanted to hear about her love. The one she held so close to her heart. She will be returned to him sooner rather than later. I think she will be the most beautiful creature when that day arrives…

my quiet afternoon…

My afternoon was really a quiet affair. No rushing around, just a casual hour spent strolling through the store looking at the over abundance of products to buy! 

I didn’t really find much that I wanted to take home with me, other than the relaxed feeling I had. It was quite lovely to just look around in the quiet of the day. 

I found these little blocks with wonderful words. I didn’t buy any of them yet I enjoyed the voice in which they were speaking…

They made me smile…maybe you will smile too!
