Hanging out on the corner of Disillusion Boulevard and Grief Road, then returning to that special spot on Despair Avenue, was my daily routine. I made the circle and never looked far afield. Widening my circuit allowed me to find Anticipation Place and Hopeful Terrace. I pushed my search and found roads, whose existence I never fathomed, intersecting, creating areas of intrigue. Optimism Court interfacing with Realization Way is the fairest of my finds, but many a fine street corner has me lurking, catching stray sunshine and encouragement. I make my home wherever the hospitality is available and return less often to the dark and stifling places of the past. Happiness is where you find it. Just make sure to read the signs.
Exponential growth is a little thing that affects you in a big way.
A Good Ship
Recently my life has taken on a surreal quality.
I stand in front of myself
as if I were a business to be run
or a project to be undertaken.
The intensity, uncertainty and drama
seem to be on the wane.
There are choices to be made
and outcomes to be determined.
This is all work and numbers,
nothing at risk below the skin.
My heart is secure, true love its protector,
faith its inborn light.
I am docked in safety harbor;
the waves may rock me,
but my anchor holds me fast.
