Just a Poem

The sun through the trees
Casts an intricate shadow upon my laptop
As I write this you see.
It makes it hard to look at what's on the screen.
But as always
I make do.
Who am I to complain?
With this wonderful light behind me.
A cup of tea before me.
And an audience awaiting my performance.
On this great stage called life.

My Hiatus

Sorry about that. I decided to take a break from blogging for the month and never got around to telling you guys. But yeah, all my blogs have been dormant for quite a bit and I'm sorry but I needed a break. But now onto the actual stuff you wanted to read...

Well it's the time again where the whole meaning of a 'holiday' as it were is totally taken to shambles by the commercial industry shoving goodwill erm... products and making money. Well Easter is one prime example. Nowadays people get excited over the prospect of candy and not the prospect of the fact that this is when Christ died so we can get into bleedin' Heaven. We're losing the true meaning of holidays especially Christian ones. Especially in our world of morally loose people, religion seems to come second to bodily pleasures when it should be the other way around.

Okay I'm gonna stop now because I just don't feel comfortable putting religious opinions out there. Sorry.


I've been writing poetry recently and wanted to share one I've written.

Ode To Bloggers

Things to write of
There are many.
Putting them to words
can be hard.
The muse that is with us
Seems to dissipate sometimes.
Sometimes I would love to stop
But love you all too much.
Sometimes I run out of things to say
But I always come up with something.
Comments are great
They make me feel good.
Like I have something worth saying.
Something good enough to talk about.
Page views are good.
Letting me know you're there.
That I'm not a lonely desolate speaker
On a lonely desolate stage.
Speaking for no one.
No one who'd want to listen.
But you're there listening.
Letting me know you care
About what I have to say.
When I almost stop
You won't let me.
I have to much to say and you make sure I know it.
Not a day goes by when I don't think
"I should post on my blog."
Without you I'd probably have stopped a long time ago.
Thank you for listening.
Thank you for caring.
Caring enough about the rambling
Of this crazy lady.
And of all the others out there.
The bloggers of the world.

Thank You.

The Way

Actually this is going to sound corny but after seeing the movie 'The Way' I have decided to make a religious pilgrimage of my own. In four years I plan to over the summer take on the El Camino de Santiago. Now while some do The Way for tourists reasons or for fun. I'm doing it for the religious aspect of it. That and the scenery is beautiful. But the religious aspect of it is really why I'm planning to do this. Ever had that feeling deep down that you are meant to do this one thing? That's how I feel. I don't feel like this is a whim. I feel like this is something that God wants me to do. This maybe a game changer for me. I feel as if this is a personal thing I need to do. I'm doing it in four years because I've got to plan this. Maybe you think I sound stupid or crazy. Maybe you think that this IS a silly whim that is absolutely pointless. But I will vehemently disagree.

These are the signs of the pilgrim traveler.

The blue dots connected by green lines is the route I plan to take. The only reason I'm starting in Paris is the fact that certain route goes through Orleans. I love St. Joan of Arc and have always wanted to go to Orleans.
