Where Life Lives


Writing Here, Writing Now



A healing heart,

Loved at every turn,

The hard case is disintegrating,

Melting away to expose me,

Gleaming brightly.

Happier now,

An open mind,

No longer lost,

This is my time!

Daily Prompt: Write Here, Write Now

Steel Sculptures

By Gordon MacKenzie Presently I am reading this book as recommended by Tom Kelley the general manager of IDEO. Chapter 1: Where have all the Geniuses Gone?

Be True

Daily Prompt: Nice Is as Nice Does

Tell us about the nicest thing you’ve ever done.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us KINDNESS.


Blog about the nicest thing I’ve ever done.  Wow, who can know the true answer to that question?  Certainly anyone who has sung my praises.  But that would be boring.


The hardest part of my entire life.  Yet those who have and continue receive more they could ever hope to in their normal lifetime.  Here’s how:

  1. New friendships.
  2. Personal healing.
  3. Honest relationships.
  4. New beginnings.
  5. An open mind.
  6. Strength.
  7. Emotional intelligence.
  8. Control of my life.
  9. Purpose.
  10. Personal Growth.

Don’t get me wrong, forgiveness is not easy.  I just know when to take back the controls when others seek to take them away.  Be nice and forgive away!

Personal Development


Success for me is to get my daughter to eat all three meals that I prepare.  I’ve increased my efforts in thinking up attractive and tasty original meals.  I would deem this a personal success whenever I consistently achieve this goal.  However we all measure success differently.  An which way success is allocated, we all must be in some way original.

When younger there seems to be an endless list of  possibilities or opportunities to achieve personal success.  As we get older the possibilities decrease or become less likely.  When in a rut, we live can live an unpromising or dull course of daily life.

Responsibilities pile pm is as we grow older.  Sometimes our circumstances seem to conspire against us.  Many forces chip away at what creative energy that we have left.  To prevent this from ever happening you must be willing to reinforce your abilities.

To stay young at heart or to prevent a decline in your creative energy you must be willing to work at it a little more.  So therefore,

  1. Nurture
  2. Build
  3. Reinforce

your creative potential so that your capacities for change can stand the test of time.  So what will I cook tonight?
