The Mermaid . . .

Everyday she swam up to the surface.  She ventured as close to the shore as she dared and took refuge behind rocks.  Not to far away, on the beach, were people.  She’d watch them play and romp around.  People would make structures out of sand and knock them down only to make something new later.  She’d see people holding hands and lazying away under the warm sun.

Things there, on the surface, looked so wonderful. They were exciting and new, and the sun was warm and inviting. She often daydreamed what it would be like to leave the water and engage with the people on the beach. What would it be like if she were human for one day?

Her tail rose out of the water and she sighed.  Who was she fooling? She was a sea creature. The only way she could spend time on land would be in her dreams.

A woman can be

“If you aren’t the woman I think you are, then this isn’t the world I thought it was.” ― Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

Society has a lot to say about what a woman is.  It has its way of trying to box them up and wrap them in a package. Doesn’t matter what we are capable of, “You look like this and therefore you act like this “- that is what society has to say.

What do we say?  A woman can be anything she wants.

Closing time . . .

It’s quiet now in the old cafe
all the people have gone away

Voices of memory echo ‘round the room
Tell of merry times that ended too soon

Turn out the light
close to door
The shop isn’t open anymore.

It’s a new day . . .

I may not have everything that I want, and yesterday things may not have gone the way I planned. But today is a new day and I can start again.

“Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.

Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Introspection. . .

“Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
― C.G. Jung

I made a personal change recently – to some it may seem like a small change, and likely many people will not notice. Which is fine. I almost prefer if it wasn’t noticed.  I’m not the type who shout about everything I’m doing to anyone who lends an ear.

While others may have their opinions about how you should look, what they say shouldn’t keep you from becoming the person you want to be. Easier said than done?  Of course it is, because we all seek to be accepted on some level.

This change has caused a lot of introspection for me. It dug around the recesses of my mind and stirred up feelings that I had carefully laid to rest. But you know what? Though sometimes it may be hard, I know that it will be worth it in the end.

To anyone going through changes in their life and things are looking hard, keep holding on. You’re going to make it.

-& | The Metal Men . . .

The food rations were about to run out. With the limited food, the people in the camp were growing hungrier. Everything had been burned or destroyed when the Metal Men appeared almost a year ago. They brought with them death, destruction, and the end modern civilization.

Scouts went out in teams.  Each time they brought back what supplies they could. Soon not only did the supplies start to dwindle, but the people started disappearing too. The ones who made it back told stories of the Metal Men attacking and taking away those who didn’t escape.  No one knew what had happened to them, as they were never seen again. Some people believed that they were used to create more Metal Men.

Last week a scout made it back to the camp – haggard and badly injured. He brought news a warehouse 20 miles to the West that may contain food. The only problem was that the area was guarded by Metal Men. He said that they looked old and rusty, maybe they were even nonfunctioning. It was decided that in a few days the scout would take a group with him and they would make their way to the warehouse.

However, one particular young lady, who had been listening, decided to go out and see it for herself.
