A Quiet Hush

As I rode in silence with only the sound of the wind creating a quiet hush in my ears. 

Surrounded by wilderness following an unknown road with only one beam of light to guide my way.  A few stars shown in the sky, the rest  of the world enveloped in blackness.  

Winding and curving, feeling totally alone, slightly afraid.  The air is cool, the bugs are abundunt, the hush of silence is becoming louder with speed. 

One road meets another and home is suddenly closer.  This path is familiar, the curves have straightened and speed has found the tires.  

Light showing here and there, lighting the final miles.  Home is on the horizon.

Victory comes in many forms – some more simple than others.

Karma Kiss

5/19/15

Sometimes people get greedy and they want what some thing for nothing.  They want what you worked your tail off for.  Unfortunately those same people will go to any length to get what you have, except work for it.  

I say more power to you – have at it!! It’s gonna whoop you and ride you like rodeo clown.  I’m gonna sit back and watch while karma kisses you on the lips. 

May all your dreams come true and you get exactly what you deserve!!

Sometimes…

5/17/16

Sometimes I have the world by its tale, I can ride it bare back, and give it a name.

When the light fades and the night takes over – my mind gets ahold of the reigns and I forget all that I knew just a little while ago.

Suddenly my balance is off, my vision is blurred and my heart is searching for peace.

Wisdom becomes fear, all hope seems lost, and faith no longer has a house key.

Tomorrow’s light brings the reigns back into control. The head and heart can once again make and find peace amongst themselves.

If only it were now…..

My Momma 5/11/14

As I was thinking about mothers day and what its really about for me there was a sudden rush of still photos projected within my mind.  

I was taken back to being a small child and having a mother that let me ride my bike through puddles right after the rain, the same one that accepted my mud pies and pretended to enjoy them.  

The lady that I was sure was never hungry because she waited until we all had our fill before she would even make a plate. Yes the same superstar that would place a single chocolate in the window sill and nibble it for days, cherishing the delicacy that it was. 

The woman that walked more trials than most could survive, the godess that not once did I ever hear complain about her lot in life.  The one that stuck with her decisions through the good and the bad.

The selfless one that has taken in mere strangers because they had no where to go.  Not only took them in but welcomed them as her own.  

The same person that I once believed to be mean – I now know taught me my morals, enstilled wisdom beyond my years, and nurtured a gentle spirit within my very soul.  She taught me that love endures all things, strength comes in many forms, and although she spent years trying to get me to be quiet,  she also taught me that silence is sometimes a much needed lesson. 

This amazing person showed me the power of endurance, taught me to listen to that small still voice, watched as I made mistakes, I needed to make and then helped me clean up the aftermath. 

She sometimes pretended not to notice things that I know she saw and heard.  She has the grace of an angel, the strength of an Olympian, the wisdom of an elder, the patience of the Lord and yes she hits like a mule kicks.

I am proud to call this pillar of strength my momma.  I hope that someday I can instill half of what she gave me to my own children.  

Thank you for who and what you are, for hanging on when many would have let go, for your guidance and your silence, both when needed.  Thank you for your wisdom and your love.  Thank you for not only being my mom but as an adult also being my friend.  Words can never express how much each moment has meant and still means.  

I love you more than my words can ever express – Happy Mothers Day Momma!

The Ride 5/11/14

While taking a leisurely ride today I was reminded how different things are atop two wheels.

The unnoticed lilacs smell heavenly. The tiny dead frog has the scent gland of an eroding elephant.  The lazy dog meandering in the ditch is suddenly a potential death threat. 

Someone cut their grass today and someone fertilized their field.  

Bugs are huge at 55, bigger at 80. A single gesture means comrodery.  Bent and up means right.  

Its ok to use all the gears – often. The air can be crisp at 70. Leather is good in all weather.  

Atop two wheels my senses come to life, my soul becomes still, while my spirit soars and my inner child begs to be noticed. 

Its not flying – but its close…

One Year Ago

I’m tougher than some, meaner than many and hard to handle when backed in a corner.  
I have a gentle spirit, a soft heart and am driven by good intentions.  
My children light up my heart, turn my frown upside down and drive me to the brink of insanity.
My home is my santuary, my husband is my rock and my quiet time is imperative. 
I believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit – that’s between me and them.  
Politics are politics and no I don’t want to discuss those either – I like you more than that.  
Life is short, do what makes you giddy, chase the dreams others don’t understand and surround yourself with people you love.  
Oh and do squats, your thighs will thank you!!

Wisdomless

I am a very strong, independent, self driven woman.  I know what I want and how to make it happen, if not I WILL figure it out.  
Then ya have a few of today’s, back to back, and ya begin to question all of the above…. 
Weak tugs at strong, helpless bumps independent, and once in a while lost takes the drivers seat.  What did I say I wanted and how was it gonna make that happen?? 
Nothing a good night sleep won’t cure – tomorrow’s a new day, new challenges, new beginings.  Thank goodness we have the hope of tomorrow!!  Thank the good Lord we have hope….
Weary Wizard left Wisdomless….
