reading the comments
makes me
and deeply value the two-way-street
of writing

at first
it is going out there
a thread a wisp of throught
sent out from one soul
by little tapping noises on keys with symbols
a little dance of fingers
a "happy dance" no matter the actual words
happy even in sadness
because there is a destination
of another soul's heart

a conversation
simply by clicking
publish post

last night I began re-reading
"The Art of Happiness"
by the Dalai Lama

I never had finished it
before it ended up in the black hole
of a closet

it resurfaced
in a timely manner

this morning on our way to school
anticipating a huge winter storm that
is upon us tomorrow
I mentioned to Bryan about starting the book
once again

he was reminded of a quote that came from
a movie we recently caught just the end of
7 years in Tibet
with Missouri's own Brad Pitt

Bryan remembered and now I can't recall
the words clearly enough...
it was about "worrying" and was so perfect...
rather than be my old frustrated self
I am going to smile
and say that this conversation
will continue

I will be picking Bryan up
at 3:00
we will talk more
as we always do...

Bryan, what was that quote?
ah, yes, thank you...


  1. Dear Gloria,

    It's so wonderful to hear your words again. I know this blog is just for you, so no pressure, but I love it. I can hear your voice and heart clearly across the miles...

    In regards to hoarding, don't worry. You and I, my dear, are definitely collectors - not hoarders. :o)


  2. Love that film!

    "We have a saying in Tibet: If a problem can be solved there is no use worrying about it. If it can't be solved, worrying will do no good."

  3. That is the quote... THANKS SO MUCH!
    and Bryan had it - you two are a team.
