  1. wow, I guess you have the same voices in your head trying to sort things out, too!!! this is actually a great thing to do – every once-in-a-while, we need to see things in the mirror looking back at us in order to stick out our tongues… you did that very well!

  2. Very nice list, Sue. It says alot about your already wonderful self. I’ve got one on my wall, similar to yours. It surprises me how many days go by when I forget it is there, then one day I look at it and read. Oh yes, I think, that’s a great list, I’ll do that or be that, and the days go by again. One day I sat down and really, really looked hard at that list, then I thought about each thing and tried to find an example of that in my life. As I found those examples, I was surprised how much like the me I wanted to be I already was. And I found a couple of things that needed serious work, like ‘exercize body.’ So I honed in on them. I started walking the sun awake every day. It feels good. Thanks for reminding me. I’d better go look at my list again…

  5. Thanks all. I’m traveling right now, so my comments and post are sporadic at best. I do so appreciate the time you each took (take) to read my poetry and that of others. I will return the atttention when I am not on a hand held device and back state side. : )
