Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

The Game's a Foot!

 I never lose sight of the fact that 
just being is fun.
Katherine Hepburn

Plans for 2012!

Places to go

People to see
and when we meet here again next New Year's Day

we will have a learned a bit more about how to really BE
You know...hear our own melody
head for the stars
Making living an art
Even if  not always on par
Taking some chances!
But still have lots of time to dream
Know when to fight the battles
and know when to call retreat
It is 2012!   
Charles Lamb said: New Years Day is every man's birthday

and I happen to agree!
It's a new dawn
a new day
a new chance TO BE

What's the Sense?

Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder
E B White

My, how we can take it all for granted!

We see the flower


But miss the wonder that may lie within

We may embrace the sun rise

But do we seize the wonder of the day?

We feel the rain and know its melody

But do we let it cleanse our soul with the wonder of its promise?
and when we make our plans
do we leave room for the wonder?

Napoleon Hill said:
“First comes thought;
 then organization of that thought,

 into ideas and plans;

 then transformation of those plans into reality.

 The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination.”

So, Come to your senses!

Because that is where wonder lives

And that’s poetiquejustis

A Word to the Fries

What I say is that, if a fellow really likes potatoes, he must be a pretty decent sort of fellow.
A.A. Milne
I have learned a lot from the noble potato

They see it all, 

but do not say very much

They know how to keep a low pro…..

They can take the heat, without getting bent out of shape

And even when they are fried,
  they find a way to add some color to their life

You can smash them, mash them or pummel them

They still will butter up and be a comfort

And even if they get a little cheesy….

It's OK..because when you're hot

You're Hot
 and that's poetiquejustis

In My Cups.....

I have measured out my life with coffee spoons
T S Eliot


some days it is hard to even give one about anything!

Nothing stirs you!

Nothing surprises you

it all seems such a grind

and nothing runneth over

Perk up!

The good stuff does not always happen in an instant
You have to put a little fire under it

add a little love
Dress it up a bit
and remember.....man does not live by coffee alone

Give it some thought
and press on!

and that's poetiquejustis
