October chill

Painting The Flying Scotsman by Norman Wilkinson October's chill is calling, Fog is rolling and crickets sigh. The train whistle sings out - Wheels clack in the mid-of-night. Stay on track in the mourning night. There's always something moving - even the drowsy lark. There's always changes coming - even in the deepest dark.

Hope you all like the results! Lamont

SWB: Bread and water are calling

Image Despondent found at blog Julie Oakley . In light of a very busy July through August and almost September - I feel that in my heart, mind and body the bread of sleeping and the rest of water is calling loud in my ears. I'm listening. Yes I am. In the past week, the areas of life that have left me despondent were: comments of criticism in an area that I thought(and know)I'd done a good job in. One of those can't made all the people happy all the time kind of things. distance from my discipline of physical exercise due to an unusual schedule last week. my frustration and impatience over a groups inflexibility in a comparatively small issue in a small arena, when huge conflict surrounding a hot topic issue and its real life effects to people and relationships are surrounding me and challenging me on too many levels. my son's tumble off his bike earlier today, that may call for a doctor's check and a wrist x-ray in the morning instead of heading to the wa
