Time for some meditation...

But, while I am on...

I wish I could LOVE more!!!

I can love when I am in need,
I can love when it is given,
But, I really do struggle,
To give when not asked...
Maybe one day,
I will be able to rekindle,
My connection with Life,
And to give people a handle,
To connect straight to me,
And not through the barbed wire,
That covers my heart...

One day maybe ay :)

This little piece deserved and deserves comment.Who passed by and did not reply to your 'hello'? So there you have it perhaps, Craig. Do things for people you can help, and ignore the ones too busy or selfish to notice your existence. There are too many people in the world anyway - fashion your OWN COMPANY to be someone you can live with, and reach out to those who reach in. Dammit - I should charge for this. And double-dammit, I let the monkey sign on before me. Thanks for your emails - looking for the 'answers' you mentioned. Take care. Go well S (cryptic note)

Hi Bob... the answer or questions, followed my piece on 'The Health of our Planet' in response to your post...

With regards to this post, I suppose I was saying in my poem, that I can be a little shy in meeting people half way... in that I can share/love/be with people who approach me, or can be receptive to such nice giving emotions when I am in need...

BUT, to be the one who approaches people with an open heart is 'challenging' for me, shall we say... Though I am breaking new ground all the time in this department... If I am to enjoy a healthy life, with healthy relationships, surely, sometimes, I need to be the one who brightens peoples day, as people sometimes brighten mine!?

I didn't quite understand the 'Fashion your own company to be someone you can live with' part friend, but agree with the reaching out to those who reach in part! To be honest Bob, that is my philosophy, at least in theory anyway, I sometimes forget, and try to get from people who can't/won't give, which causes me pain, but I do it of less nowadays at least! :)

Would be interested in any further thoughts you may have :)

'Fashion your own company...'I meant, make yourself into the kind of person you can get along with, if others can do so as well it's a bonus. Work on who you are and don't DWELL too much on who you are because others see what you do and make their own minds up about who you are. What are you doing these days? Thanks for dropping in on Dr.Awsom.
