When my soulful self Is swallowed up by The deep grey storm And I am not sure why My mind and body Can’t take another beating
I look to heaven And ask an uncomfortable truth Why am I staying here? Why endure? Why simply why?
I guess I am planted in the world Due to the seed of hope Sometimes it is so small But is so determined to remind me That along with hope there is a winding path And I am just plain curious what is just beyond
What's Right with Life?
I’ve learned that I will not always be the same – and I guess I don’t have to.
After all, how can you stay the same day after day, week after week, with no change in mood or habit? I can’t, maybe I’m too changeable or else I get bored being the same all of the time. So I like to trick people, or surprise them or, myself, maybe both who knows? We’re always changeable I guess, or maybe it’s the weather or how it affects me.
I’ve learned that I can grow and change, whether it’s permanent or not.
What’s right with life? You never know until you try, or else you’ll never grow. Try fail, try fail, try succeed? Maybe sometimes, maybe; I hope so.. And if no, well you do the best you can as you go; Or you fail. Well maybe sometimes people will think so, but so what? Don’t we all sometimes?
Who is a brilliant success always? No one! I know certainly not me. So if you fail or think you do, so what? Besides who cares what others think? Maybe we should do both, so there!!
What Can I Tell You About Me? by Wiley Guy
I make others laugh
but when I go home
There are times
When I cry
I feel great loss
Both are present within me
Sunrise to moon glow
both are present
and I still live
So for today

I don't care about what I am expected to do. ; I am just going to take the next step. The tomorrows of my life will be what I put into them and I shall not falter.
If I do fall into the abyss, I will have no choice, no action to take, therefore; no worry.
I am caught between loving my choices and wishing with all my heart to let go of worries. However, the crooked, creaking door, shaking and spewing dust in different directions tells me that what is behind it is desperate and monstrous.
It is when choices become binding that final decisions must be made. The monster in the closet must always be considered.
I refuse to be considerate of the monster and yet I know that such acceptance is the best way to disempower it.

How wonderful the 9Muses Art Center's programs are. I look forward to coming to 9Muses almost everyday. I get tired sometimes but after I am rested I am up and running again. The staff is very friendly and helpful. 9Muses is always nice and clean, the clients are just as nice and friendly as the staff. The activities are out of sight, I just love creating things and using my hands. They did a wonderful thing when they started 9Muses Art Center. I recommend it to everyone that asks me about it. The fact that you can sell your work after you've finished it is fulfilling. The staff helps you sell your work and thy don't mind doing it. Three cheers for 9Muses Art Center!
Today by Gary Fletcher
Today is the day I ground myself; Feel connected to the world I will own the moments of my life And string these moments into a single day I will wear this necklace of moments proudly And share the jewel called today
