I have to agree with Fee, and think of all the individuals with different personality disorder's whom went miss diagnosed. Be thankful, you have the answers now. Also, I enjoyed the write. Best wishes to you...
Shooting From the Hip (Short Story) - 1/20/2010 5:00:39 AM
Sadly all too many people were written off, kicked out of families, locked away or worst because so little was known about mental illness. Glad you survived.

Thank you for sharing this important information. Love and peace to you,

Sounds as you suggest like a book we all should read and learn from.
Transformation (Poetry) - 5/25/2015 8:21:16 AM
Succinct and yet very thought-inciting, Deborah. Thank you for sharing. Love and best wishes to you,
Yesteryear (Poetry) - 5/25/2015 8:19:50 AM
One can always hope, Deborah. At least, that is the way I feel. Love and best wishes,
The Outing (Poetry) - 5/24/2015 8:49:01 AM
I love the ambiance shared through your verses here, Deborah. Thank you! Love and best wishes,
The Outing (Poetry) - 5/22/2015 1:56:10 PM
I like the fresh green and sweet delight of nature in this ~
The Outing (Poetry) - 5/22/2015 9:23:00 AM
The animals were watching you and commenting on your performance too...bet you got a ten of ten...-e-
The Outing (Poetry) - 5/22/2015 8:58:46 AM
Often a tradition in northern climes when Memorial Day is the first good day of summer.
And I thought of the other "outing" as well, because it is always a good time to come out, if one is so inclined, that is.
The Outing (Poetry) - 5/22/2015 7:27:56 AM
Sounds good to me!
The Outing (Poetry) - 5/22/2015 7:11:28 AM
Warm and touching is this one . . . A picnic today . . . Who knows what tomorrow may bring . . .
Transformation (Poetry) - 5/21/2015 8:37:57 AM
I think of transformation as as resulting in something good. The transformation in your poem seems to be something different.

Transformation (Poetry) - 5/21/2015 7:41:55 AM
I feel an inside pain..."Candy-coated from within".............but yet an ultimate joy..."Timeless and sublime".
Transformation (Poetry) - 5/21/2015 6:51:55 AM
"Disbelief of how and why" . . . That doesn't sound too good . . . Hope I am misreading this . . .
My Own Skin (Poetry) - 5/20/2015 6:28:31 PM
I've never experienced people that are rich & famous, but from your posting here maybe I am better for NOT being around them...I think we all have to be comfortable in our own skin, though for the most part I don't think I am...will have to "chew" on this awhile...thoughtful write, Deb...-e- (& thanks for your insightful comment on my last posting "Or not", its always appreciated & looked forward too)
My Own Skin (Poetry) - 5/20/2015 11:54:28 AM
I'm comfortable around all types of people.....rich, poor.....I don't care!
My Own Skin (Poetry) - 5/20/2015 11:41:24 AM
Not so with me all the time, Deborah. There was a big part of my life when I didn't quite know who I was. Physically I was from my mother who gave me away to a witch for a mother. I finally took a good look, and these days I absolutely know who I am.

Awe the signs of spring and freedom from cold weather restrictions !
Peace love and light
One with Nature (Poetry) - 5/18/2015 10:19:58 AM
What if everyone took a walk along the forest floor...
once each season. Would that clear a lot of heads? Great thoughts.
One with Nature (Poetry) - 5/18/2015 3:06:38 AM
Perfect peace here...thank you...

One with Nature (Poetry) - 5/17/2015 1:03:35 PM
There's really something very special about the way that nature landscapes. Something that farming cannot do.

Your words will linger in my thoughts long after I have read them. Simple. precise.

I have walked in a forest and is as you say so serene.
Turquoise Eyes.. (Poetry) - 5/16/2015 9:42:21 AM

Lilacs, Lavender & Lace (Poetry) - 5/15/2015 7:21:55 AM
I remember the lilacs of spring and that sweet fragrance that some women wore as perfume. But I don't recall it bringing romance to me.
Still, I can see how it may have brought romance to you.
Lilacs, Lavender & Lace (Poetry) - 5/15/2015 6:37:19 AM
A lover, and a lover of nature as well...great poem, and it is hard to tell if the last stanza closes it, or merely opens it to so much more...
Lilacs, Lavender & Lace (Poetry) - 5/14/2015 11:27:32 AM
Only a lover can compose such words
Lilacs, Lavender & Lace (Poetry) - 5/14/2015 11:12:53 AM
These are a few of my favorite things............lovely!
Lilacs, Lavender & Lace (Poetry) - 5/14/2015 9:51:49 AM
Three cheers for that which binds us. In your case . . . "Lilacs in the spring, / Lavender sheets, / Lace binds us...Always." Oh, it is so very good to have that one special thing which bind us to our lover.
Taking it Slowly (Poetry) - 5/14/2015 8:43:59 AM
Love Jerry's comment. May that timing be perfect. I like the breathless, rapt expression here, Deborah. xx

free from the dictates of the around us...in love
with beauty and this world...You made my day!
Taking it Slowly (Poetry) - 5/13/2015 10:45:49 AM
A case where going slowly wins the race, that's for sure!
Falling into ... Out of Love (Poetry) - 5/13/2015 8:48:54 AM
I don't agree with Ed. I have gay friends (men and women) and women can be "players" too. In any case, I love your poem and I love the way you share of your "self." Thank you. Love and best wishes from me,
Taking it Slowly (Poetry) - 5/13/2015 8:46:59 AM
I totally "get" this, Deborah. I can so relate. I find it lovingly engaging and meaningful. You meant to write "breath" in the last verse of your first stanza. I hate typos. I make them all the time and I appreciate it when others point them out since I don't notice them because they are my own. Lol! Love and best wishes,
Taking it Slowly (Poetry) - 5/13/2015 7:26:58 AM
Marvelous love poem
Taking it Slowly (Poetry) - 5/13/2015 6:50:48 AM
Ahhh . . . And when souls caress the seal of love is absolute . . .
Fluttering Wings (Poetry) - 5/12/2015 12:01:03 PM
As others have said, the final line adeptly qualifies those that build up to it. As delicate as the mood you paint, Deborah. xx
Fluttering Wings (Poetry) - 5/12/2015 7:13:02 AM
So innocent and enticing. Better not to get into deep at this stage.
Fluttering Wings (Poetry) - 5/11/2015 4:25:55 PM
Sometimes the best sound is the sound of silence and when love is born from it, then that is the best sound of all. Thank you for sharing, Deborah. Love and best wishes,
Fluttering Wings (Poetry) - 5/11/2015 3:11:41 PM
True love comes quietly :)
Fluttering Wings (Poetry) - 5/11/2015 1:55:19 PM
...there is certain wisdom in standing stil and...in great poem
expressing it...so very well...expressing the life's "Fluttering
Wings". Thank you Deborah for sharing your words.
Fluttering Wings (Poetry) - 5/11/2015 8:57:59 AM
All good feelings!
Fluttering Wings (Poetry) - 5/11/2015 8:14:45 AM
It seems that all the minor parts must be satisfied before
anyone can reach the level where hearts are still. Well said.
Fluttering Wings (Poetry) - 5/11/2015 8:09:05 AM
Last line. Perfect. And the reason for the above seven lines.

Falling into ... Out of Love (Poetry) - 5/8/2015 4:47:13 PM
Some people are in it just for the thrill of it all. Once the thrill is gone....................so are they!
Falling into ... Out of Love (Poetry) - 5/8/2015 12:45:02 PM
Sounds to be a typical gay relationship, but usually only on the male side...the females usually became lovers for life without any hanky panky on the side...I know this as I used to work as a bouncer in a gay club in Philadelphia & the guys would be in every weekend with a new "lover/boyfriend" but the girls stuck together...some people though are or seem to be addicted to the lust part so more power to them if that is what they want...-e-
Falling into ... Out of Love (Poetry) - 5/8/2015 12:11:28 PM
The world is full of lovers
Falling into ... Out of Love (Poetry) - 5/8/2015 12:06:51 PM
Love the "Falling in / Out of love" thought process you have given to this woman who lived for lust and lust only. For many in this world, men and women alike, lust is enough . . . Eh . . . If it makes them happy . . .
Rapture Me . . . (Poetry) - 5/7/2015 4:14:00 PM
Hey young lady, don't be showing me pictures like that and making more pictures in my mind of backseat memories, as nothing can I do about it anymore...I get all hot and have to take a cold shower and u must know how I hate to bathe... <smile> -e-
Rapture Me . . . (Poetry) - 5/7/2015 1:05:03 PM
Hot tamales! Brings back memories of my '47 Kaiser.
Rapture Me . . . (Poetry) - 5/7/2015 10:25:57 AM
Remember it all. Now I have hot August nights from April to November… Entrancing.
Rapture Me . . . (Poetry) - 5/7/2015 9:50:05 AM
You can't buy beautiful memories like that! How lovely you write.
Rapture Me . . . (Poetry) - 5/7/2015 7:56:57 AM
Yes, agree with Jeff about 'My entrance is yours'; when we willingly give over that gateway to our being then loving abandonment is complete. xx
Rapture Me . . . (Poetry) - 5/7/2015 6:08:36 AM
Love and lust combined very tastefully here! Great work.
Rapture Me . . . (Poetry) - 5/7/2015 4:09:29 AM
Complete and imaginative abandonment is this beauty with it's "Teenagers in backseats of cars" identity. Rock on!
Rapture Me . . . (Poetry) - 5/7/2015 3:44:03 AM
Wow... wonderfully inviting. Especially love "...my entrance is yours." -- Jeff
Torrential Downpour (Poetry) - 5/6/2015 5:05:32 PM
Beautiful imagery and mystical awareness in this piece!
Torrential Downpour (Poetry) - 5/6/2015 2:35:10 PM
A ethereal feel to this piece of writing...
I love liquid landscapes...
My Analogy of Love (Poetry) - 5/6/2015 1:14:46 PM
Love can be a pain in the butt,
Love can be one night with a slut,
Love can encompass all things in the world,
Sometimes love can feel like one is in a rut...BUT...
(this from my meager knowledge of same, got me to thinkin, thanks)
Torrential Downpour (Poetry) - 5/6/2015 10:19:49 AM
I'm glad the nightmares are dissolving. Time and love are the great healers.
My Analogy of Love (Poetry) - 5/6/2015 7:43:20 AM
Many reasons why we should all be in love. Sweet.
Torrential Downpour (Poetry) - 5/6/2015 7:39:14 AM
Ahhh . . . The last line helps to put the above lines at rest. The old saying into life a little rain must fall. Even so, there is always sunshine to uncloud your life . . .
My Analogy of Love (Poetry) - 5/5/2015 1:23:28 PM
Very well put!
My Analogy of Love (Poetry) - 5/5/2015 9:10:35 AM
You called it with this one and I agree 100%.
My Analogy of Love (Poetry) - 5/5/2015 8:51:28 AM
True! All of it!
Brush Strokes (Poetry) - 5/4/2015 2:36:30 PM
Colorfully meaningful verses that speak to me most effectively. Thank you! Love and best wishes,
Brush Strokes (Poetry) - 5/3/2015 9:55:54 PM
A special poem for romantic moments. Well done!
Brush Strokes (Poetry) - 5/3/2015 11:16:57 AM
Excellent imagery....and so original...
Brush Strokes (Poetry) - 5/3/2015 8:08:20 AM
I really like the colorful way you describe this poem. The image is electric and perfect for the poem! Why am I thinking 50 Shades of Gray?
Brush Strokes (Poetry) - 5/3/2015 5:07:53 AM
And colors burst into love! Beautifully penned!
Brush Strokes (Poetry) - 5/3/2015 2:26:47 AM
Me too, regards the black & gray, but there is always a bit of sunshine sometimes just reading a nice little poem like this can bring on the bright colors in life...thanks...-e-
Brush Strokes (Poetry) - 5/2/2015 5:58:26 PM
Can't express yourself much better than that. When the right one happens along, your thoughts and words take on a whole new meaning.
Looking for Me (Poetry) - 4/12/2015 10:13:12 AM
Nice poem with a glance at love.
Un cer tain ty (Poetry) - 3/22/2015 4:15:53 PM
I believe this as well, Deborah; thank you for sharing your perspective through your verses. Love and best wishes,
Un cer tain ty (Poetry) - 3/18/2015 7:24:28 AM
A nice poem, but I agree with Ron. Death remains the last great mystery.
Un cer tain ty (Poetry) - 3/18/2015 5:08:46 AM
The old saw is, "Nothing is more certain than death and taxes." While life may be uncertain, death isn't. You write of going into "another dimension." That's nice wishful thinking, but it is also uncertain.
Un cer tain ty (Poetry) - 3/17/2015 1:49:36 PM
I can't wait for the next dimension to appear as I know I have learned a lot in this one to make that next one better. Great write!
Un cer tain ty (Poetry) - 3/17/2015 11:48:40 AM
Yes heaven or hell are the two places reserved for the dead. We have the choice.
Un cer tain ty (Poetry) - 3/17/2015 11:39:04 AM
Ahhh . . . Wisdom from your pen Deborah, and I agree completely with your assessment. Death opens the door to something wonderful. I truly believe this . . l excellent poetry!

I really love this poem!!!
It says so much in such a short verse.
Peace love and light
Cobwebs Attached to my Heartstrings (Poetry) - 3/12/2015 6:26:00 AM
I pretty much understand you without knowing the particulars. These "issues" will crop up now and again, don't be shy stomp them, stomp them down.
With no Place to Go (Poetry) - 3/11/2015 11:54:14 AM
She's not suffering anymore. Every time you feel that certain "peace" know she is there.
With no Place to Go (Poetry) - 3/10/2015 12:19:03 PM
You know that I completely empathize since the last time I talked with her was less than a month ago. I kept believing that she would be back. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and tribute to Carol. Love and best wishes,
With no Place to Go (Poetry) - 3/10/2015 11:31:15 AM
Again sorry for your loss
Lily of the Lough Neagh (Poetry) - 3/10/2015 8:51:11 AM
Yes! I can vouch for what she helped me through at a particularly bad time. I am still shocked by how quickly this disease took her away. Thank you for sharing this tribute to Carol (Aingeal, the Lily of Lough Neagh), Deborah. Love and best wishes,
Lily of the Lough Neagh (Poetry) - 3/9/2015 2:10:57 PM
I remember her
Lily of the Lough Neagh (Poetry) - 3/9/2015 1:30:50 PM
Life is cruel sometimes.
Looking for Me (Poetry) - 3/7/2015 6:03:00 AM
Lovely poem, gentle yet passionate.
Carol was her Name (Poetry) - 3/7/2015 6:01:42 AM
It is a great loss to you personally because she was your friend. But she was one of those people who is a friend to the world and will be greatly missed. Lovely tribute from your heart, the kind she would appreciate.
A Memory of Many (Poetry) - 3/6/2015 7:15:08 PM
unfortunately it is usually a bittersweet scene many in love have experienced...sometimes one wonders if that magic is like the new car smell when you first get in a new car and eventually without thinking it fades and then you wonder what happened to that magic and when did it all disappear?
Carol was her Name (Poetry) - 3/6/2015 7:06:42 PM
Yes, those of us who were fortunate to have known such a sweet and tender soul such as Carol were truly blessed. I too was very close to her and it seemed she made time for everyone as she was a soul who always took in strays and helped in every way she could. She was loved by all and I do so love that you did this in tribute to her as we are all affected by her passing. You have a very generous soul Deborah. You need to be proud of who you are.
Carol was her Name (Poetry) - 3/6/2015 6:26:18 PM
She was a wonderful person, I'm sure she's very happy up in Heaven, helping others as she did on earth.
Carol was her Name (Poetry) - 3/6/2015 8:06:40 AM
So sad to hear that she lost her battle. Thank you for telling us. Carol certainly lit up the den with her poetry and insights.
Carol was her Name (Poetry) - 3/6/2015 7:37:32 AM
You said it all, Deborah...Carol was all kindness, understanding, poetry and beauty. May we all strive to be more like her.
Carol was her Name (Poetry) - 3/6/2015 7:35:16 AM
I "feel" Carol smiling down on everyone. She has become pure light, I'm sure of it. Let us not mourn her death but celebrate the life she lead.
Carol was her Name (Poetry) - 3/5/2015 6:51:11 PM
...today...we all at the AD...lost our Dear Friend Carol aka Lily of Lough Neagh...my thoughts and prayers are with Her loved ones...We will miss you Carol!
My warmest condolences to you Deborah.
Carol was her Name (Poetry) - 3/5/2015 6:25:52 PM
I love her too. A bit at a loss for words. Thank you, Deborah (assuming I know who wrote this). Love and best wishes to you,
Carol was her Name (Poetry) - 3/5/2015 5:04:57 PM
Yes Deb, she was a damn good friend to anyone that knew her & have to ask why does God take the good people like her and leave people that are not so good here...-e-
Carol was her Name (Poetry) - 3/5/2015 2:52:52 PM
God bless her and welcome her home. Sorry for your loss.
Looking for Me (Poetry) - 3/5/2015 8:30:48 AM

My kind of poetic expression that elevates love. Thank you for sharing this gift. Love and best wishes,

How fortunate we are when true love comes our way.
Two Roses Become One (Poetry) - 2/28/2015 9:53:21 AM
It's about time, but there's still a lot of work to do. Most of the world's religions still demean women and that needs to change.
Two Roses Become One (Poetry) - 2/27/2015 4:28:00 PM
I agree... ...I love roses and women; I let them choose. Lovely and meaningful write, Deborah. Love and best wishes to you,
Two Roses Become One (Poetry) - 2/27/2015 2:36:16 PM
Proving a point?
Two Roses Become One (Poetry) - 2/27/2015 2:29:52 PM
Right on, Sistah!!!!
Two Roses Become One (Poetry) - 2/27/2015 1:07:08 PM
Yes indeed, I would certainly say they do . . .
Turn Turn Turn (Poetry) - 2/27/2015 7:10:39 AM
Without an axis, all this would not be possible. The entire Earth would have no seasons, similar to what occurs in the equator. It is indeed, the turn, turn, turning of the earth that creates these wonderful changes north of the tropics. Your poem makes me remember when I lived where they were more distinct and life-changing.
Turn Turn Turn (Poetry) - 2/26/2015 5:19:45 PM
Oh that wonderful changing of the seasons...
I love this poem....nothing ever stands still...
Nature is always looking ahead...
Turn Turn Turn (Poetry) - 2/26/2015 4:15:57 PM
Gosh how I love the four seasons and your poem.
Turn Turn Turn (Poetry) - 2/26/2015 3:06:36 PM
There has been no winter here (second year in a row); and spring has sprung (like the title of my latest poem posted here), quite some time back. The daffodils are just about in bloom. Believe it or not, I miss the snow. I love your poem, by the way, Deborah. Thank you for sharing it. Love and best wishes to you,
Turn Turn Turn (Poetry) - 2/26/2015 11:57:58 AM
We up here in the Western Reserve will never see Spring, I fear!!!
Just kidding, of course. Your lovely poem has given me hope! Thank you.
Turn Turn Turn (Poetry) - 2/26/2015 11:47:36 AM
Yeah you're right. Bring it on. Spring. Only one thing wrong with spring. It leads to summer . . . eh . . . Drat!
Everlasting Memories (Poetry) - 2/23/2015 7:07:54 PM
The good memories are what keep us going.......
Everlasting Memories (Poetry) - 2/23/2015 9:13:51 AM
The making of memories is always good. It is a way of writing the book of experience in our lives one chapter at a time. Sometimes the most beautiful thing in life is making great memories. Excellent write,
Everlasting Memories (Poetry) - 2/23/2015 7:18:07 AM
Yes we all want to do this...but the only way to achieve great memories is to learn to live in the present moment. And that is not always easy! Great thoughts from you as usual :)
Everlasting Memories (Poetry) - 2/22/2015 4:04:05 PM
Sometimes, briefly, our memories are all we have to help us through. great poem.
Everlasting Memories (Poetry) - 2/21/2015 1:12:57 PM
I wish my memories were everlasting as I try to remember what I've forgotten.
Everlasting Memories (Poetry) - 2/21/2015 12:36:23 PM
I have a few memories I wish I could forget but for the most part it's been a fun ride. (It still is!)
Everlasting Memories (Poetry) - 2/21/2015 12:02:38 PM
Yes, even the least of us should make the most of our memories. There comes a time when that's all we have left of life.
Everlasting Memories (Poetry) - 2/21/2015 11:24:17 AM
As long as two folks can walk away clean and learn something from the experience, nothing more can be said...-e-
Everlasting Memories (Poetry) - 2/21/2015 10:45:14 AM
Yes I do. Yes I did. Yes, it was worth every minute of it.
Disposable Love (Poetry) - 2/21/2015 8:22:21 AM
I agree with Regis: universal and timeless...great poem!
Disposable Love (Poetry) - 2/20/2015 6:28:00 AM
Yes, but pity the poor timid soul who never took the chance...
Disposable Love (Poetry) - 2/19/2015 8:47:27 AM
Love may or may not not be disposable, but it sure is easily dispensed! Very thought-provoking poem.
Disposable Love (Poetry) - 2/19/2015 8:14:26 AM
It takes a lot of work to make a relationship work. For to many people, it's easier to just walk away.
Disposable Love (Poetry) - 2/18/2015 11:36:07 PM
Kinda glad I never got married, well not really, bu then again definitely...-e-
Disposable Love (Poetry) - 2/18/2015 4:06:55 PM
Ah! this incredible good chemistry of human attraction...the earth-moving phenomenon and a lighting struck sensation...still need a lot of time and work to develop into long lasting un-disposable love...
Thank you Deborah for your strongly appreciated analysis of human relationship...
Disposable Love (Poetry) - 2/18/2015 4:01:09 PM
It is so sad when this happens, but hopefully there will be good memories too....and a lot of hard earned experience..

"A loveless marriage with no intimacy" - oh that's really bad when that happens. I'm glad my marriage is filled with love, intimacy, and sentiments. I thank God for my WONDERFUL hubby and my 3 beautiful children everyday!
Disposable Love (Poetry) - 2/18/2015 3:02:48 PM
Sometimes even working at a marriage can be one sided. There are so many different situations to consider here. I certainly can relate to your poem, Deborah, in any case.
Disposable Love (Poetry) - 2/18/2015 3:00:51 PM
Jerry is right on the target. It is a life's work.
Disposable Love (Poetry) - 2/18/2015 2:13:51 PM
Sadly, the theme that you express via your verses here is a universal and seemingly timeless one in this life/world. I am intimate with what you have shared here, Deborah. Love and best wishes to you,
Disposable Love (Poetry) - 2/18/2015 2:01:08 PM
You betcha, Deborah, it is epidemic in nature. Once married things change. Courtship is over. Now it is time to "work" at the marriage. Some guys and gals just do not understand that.

Deborah, yours are powerful words..."let us rejoice"...embracing
the whole beauty of nature...laughing free our face from the facade
of hidden pain...and your photo....to prove the point-need...to express
our joy...compassion with all human spirit..
Let US Rejoice..... (Poetry) - 2/13/2015 1:44:35 PM
Uplifting, wonderful words...!
Let US Rejoice..... (Poetry) - 2/13/2015 9:39:30 AM
Stunning in its simplicity.
A beautiful message.
Let US Rejoice..... (Poetry) - 2/12/2015 11:27:12 AM
Gives me a wonderful feeling without having to go to church… Just rejoicing for the love of it.
Let US Rejoice..... (Poetry) - 2/11/2015 2:06:49 PM
Seems this is the nature of life to look at a mirror and with a smile that turns to laughter, knowing what a fool I have become.
Let US Rejoice..... (Poetry) - 2/11/2015 1:12:12 PM
Oh, you hit the nail right on the head with those last two lines! Thank you for the reminder.
Growing Pains (Poetry) - 2/11/2015 11:31:24 AM
I like this unique viewpoint and thoughtful observation, Deborah. Transformation comes in many forms but not without change and metamorphosis of some kind. Neat. xx
Growing Pains (Poetry) - 2/10/2015 7:24:24 AM
Pain spurs growth in many areas of life. I like this one a lot!
Growing Pains (Poetry) - 2/10/2015 7:23:15 AM
Amazing poem! Thank you :)
Growing Pains (Poetry) - 2/10/2015 7:12:44 AM
Somehow, I sense this is a very personal statement.
Growing Pains (Poetry) - 2/10/2015 6:51:01 AM
Ed said it best. I hope I never stop growing.
Growing Pains (Poetry) - 2/9/2015 4:01:47 PM
Some things we never grow out of
Growing Pains (Poetry) - 2/9/2015 3:18:16 PM
Don't ya have to be still growing to have those pains...? -e-
Growing Pains (Poetry) - 2/9/2015 3:13:39 PM
Still having those things, eh, after all these years? Ouch!!
Memorable Memories (Poetry) - 2/8/2015 4:21:01 PM
This is "right in my face" as I am a member of a group recently created on Facebook where it's all about our childhood days where I grew up. Most of the photos shared from that time are in black and white. Thank you for sharing, Deborah. Love and best wishes to you,
Memorable Memories (Poetry) - 2/8/2015 2:33:29 PM
Treasured photos and music to dream by.....what a wonderful way to pass the time.
Memorable Memories (Poetry) - 2/8/2015 12:24:40 PM
Something like listening to old tapes can enhance old memories. I have a couple of those that I dare not let anyone listen to. ;-)
Memorable Memories (Poetry) - 2/8/2015 7:14:26 AM
Looking at b&w photographs-trying to remember. I can so relate to that.I look at my yr. book from"72 and i don't remember who half of my class mates are. All the pictures we took of our kids when they were infants, and I can't tell you who's who. That's why we should label our photos, but seldom do.
Memorable Memories (Poetry) - 2/8/2015 3:38:33 AM
Deborah, you're so right...it is something about
photographs...they capture that single moment...
single smile...good time and not so...And memories
bringing back a thought...the smell...the song...the
early morning dawn...bringing us back to that moment,
that we view from every possible angle...now...because
it is safe to look at life...in day-light...to see that
nothing's really lost...as long as we cherish the memory
of that single moment...
Memorable poetry, indeed. Thank you for sharing your
thoughts-provoking verse. Blessings!
Memorable Memories (Poetry) - 2/8/2015 1:33:40 AM
The good out weighs the bad
Memorable Memories (Poetry) - 2/7/2015 7:15:36 PM
Indeed, life is sweet,. It just takes some of us longer to understand that, than do others.

Risk... often has unique rewards; one of which is relief and... release. Very daringly penned! -- Jeff Mason

In the Dark (Poetry) - 1/28/2015 8:38:46 AM
That's what you call spicing it up, and that's how to spell relief.
Prisoner (Poetry) - 1/28/2015 7:41:16 AM
A very concise view of the human condition...so well done!
In the Dark (Poetry) - 1/28/2015 7:40:07 AM
Jello shots??? Never done that! A curious drink, but the effect seems to be a good one...Nice, fun write.
Cry With You (Poetry) - 1/27/2015 8:11:05 PM
Deborah this is so heartfelt. Everyone should have a friend like you.
In the Dark (Poetry) - 1/27/2015 8:10:01 PM

I'm all eyes, ears, and hands for this one! Naughty naughty…
PS. Never had a Jell-O shot. How do you drink something that you have to eat with a spoon because you can't eat it with chopsticks? ;-)
In the Dark (Poetry) - 1/26/2015 5:18:19 AM
There is no end to amusing ourselves.
In the Dark (Poetry) - 1/26/2015 4:45:10 AM

Danger makes it all the more exciting.

This is a treasure... ...as true friendship is. Thank you for sharing this gift, Deborah. Love and best wishes to you,
Cry With You (Poetry) - 1/23/2015 2:51:25 PM
Everyone needs someone like this at "low" moments.
Cry With You (Poetry) - 1/23/2015 10:08:25 AM
Funny (not) that you would post this poem this day. I could use a hand to hold . . .
Prisoner (Poetry) - 1/23/2015 7:38:08 AM
I believe I know the source of your struggle. May you find that freedom soon.
Prisoner (Poetry) - 1/22/2015 4:47:25 PM
I can completely relate. You might have peeked into my soul and those sentiments would fit completely. Thank you for sharing, Deborah. Love and best wishes,
Prisoner (Poetry) - 1/22/2015 3:50:26 PM
Love frees the soul. I hope yours is set free soon.
Prisoner (Poetry) - 1/22/2015 12:29:41 PM
Love must share to be truly free.
Prisoner (Poetry) - 1/22/2015 12:25:32 PM
Love has a way of doing that to us from time to time. Hopefully yours will be short-lived.
Prisoner (Poetry) - 1/22/2015 12:21:18 PM
Very profound. We indeed are all prisoners in our own bodies, and love is our key to freedom. Beautifully stated.
Where are my Cards? (Poetry) - 1/12/2015 5:29:39 AM
And where are the love letters, lovers once tied up with a ribbon and kept in a locked chest?
Musical Chairs (Poetry) - 1/12/2015 5:28:59 AM
You are so right Deborah, music is a gift from God. Went to a wedding where there was no music, I felt cheated of one of the most beautiful elements of a wedding.
Where are my Cards? (Poetry) - 1/6/2015 10:22:56 AM
I do love technology (particularly for the ease of communicating) but I also love getting my yearly cards from my daughters and one of my nieces. The personal touch cannot be replaced. Love and best wishes to you,
Musical Chairs (Poetry) - 1/5/2015 2:21:31 PM
The truth, told with humor and heart! Love this one Deborah!
I can remember being awfully pushy at this game :)
Musical Chairs (Poetry) - 1/4/2015 11:54:08 AM
Music is an integral part of our being I think. Nicely done! Love and best wishes to you,
Musical Chairs (Poetry) - 1/3/2015 12:11:54 PM
I think music goes back a long way. From the time early humans heard the songs of birds and tried to imitate them, too singing around campfires at night and ritualistic singing to the gods. Instruments like the flute and the drum were easy to make long before the thought of the piano and electric guitar crossed a mind.
I love most music except those that are too repetitive.
Musical Chairs (Poetry) - 1/3/2015 8:30:47 AM
As they say, without music the world would B Flat.
Musical Chairs (Poetry) - 1/2/2015 6:40:54 PM
This poem reminded me of my piano lessons, the 3 B's, Moonlight Sonata................I bet you took piano lessons!
