Our stories end the same

Our stories end the same.

We reach the same Destination.

It is as we have been told forever and ever--

It is the Route, the Path, the Journey.

It maddens me to find my present state of Wispiness.

It saddens me to need tell of my Journey.

It gladdens me to believe I might start telling.

Telling bits and pieces--memories mixed up, places put sideways, miscast characters.

In the end does it matter what I tell? What really happened?

Will I even know when I mistate something. Misassign a memory?

Only my impressions, questions, sensations, explanations, conclusions,

judgments, beliefs, encounters, experiences, excitement, disappointments,

and energy can tell my story.

Thank you. :)


Wow. That was something else.


Isn't it odd. I find solace here. Thank you so.


Beautiful in it's stark desolation!

I love it!

Thank you for sharing your mind!


Your comments warm me through and through. Thank you.


Tell it!


Gonna try. Thanks.



Well done. Creatively stated. I'm a writer and I would imagine that the act of letting the words flow from my brain to my fingertips keeps me somewhat lucid for another day. BUT, and that's a big but, in the end, at the end, coming up to the end, seeing the end, feeling the end, and finally, living the end...does it really matter? I say it does. The fact that you inspired, you gave hope, you allowed one person the comfort of not feeling alone. Bravo!


Your words brought a cry to my lips. My husband and I met, racing towards each other--he to assure himself that I was all right, I to read your words to him. Tears came, then joy. Thank you.


No, thank you. You've made my day, my year, and maybe my life, worthwhile.
