The whisper on the wind Carries a gentle message… No more second chances It echoes As if contradicting itself Like this:Like Loading... 31 Comments A contradiction, or perhaps a nudge to seize the opportunity? Chances pop up more than once or twice… the trick is to know when to take them. 🙂 LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Exactly right, CM!I think when we keep seeing the same kind of thing, it’s most definitely a nudge!

The same is if we keep missing the sign being shown! 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Are you talking about the sign on Sept.23? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Sign on September 23rd? Erm… no, but now I’m intrigued! 😀 LikeLike Reply Oh no…after the first time it is no longer a mistake it is a decision LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Sept.23 2017 the signs in the stars from Revelation 12 ( in the bible) will be in the sky. There has been a lot of interest. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I think I’ve missed this sign, Beverly. See… there I was, looking the other way as usual! 😀 LikeLike Reply Beautiful poem … but … is it you that requires the second chance, or are you telling someone else that they have no more second chances, I wonder. Fabulous photos. ~ Cobs. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Thanks, Cobs. I actually wrote this because I was tired of making the same mistake over and over again, so I was telling myself no more second chances! Between you and I, I’ll make the same mistake again. I never learn. LikeLiked by 2 people Reply Ohhh, been there, done that, got the Tshirt and … still bloomin’ doing it. We’re human Tom. We’re meant to learn, but if we don’t learn it the first time, or the second or the third … we keep getting the lesson until we learn it by heart. My excuse is one brain cell.

By the way, Charlie, I’m not able to comment on your posts – have you made some changes to your blog or do I have to do something? I click ‘Like’ but sometimes don’t feel that’s enough! 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yeah… a ton of changes on the site… an entire social community and more! hehe But the trade-off meant that the comments don’t show up in the reader, just on the actual site. I’ve asked WordPress.com and they say they don’t know when or if they’ll be a fix. 😔 But, you can sign in to Doodlewash with WordPress now and create your very own artist profile and join the social community there. Would love to have you! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Bit late in replying here, Charlie, but there’s nothing new there from me! 😀 I signed up ages ago with your social site but I don’t tend to use them (social sites) as they are meant to be (apart form blogging, of course!). Today was the first time I saw the comments box on your Autumn Leaf post – I usually link to the sites I follow through the Reader, but read and comment on the site directly, but with yours, for some reason (probably me missing it entirely!) the comment box just wasn’t there. I can see it now, though, which is good! It’s good to be back! 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Yeah, my site has changed to the Business Plan and with it came some odd bugs that WordPress.com hasn’t quite addressed yet. My tags don’t appear in the reader anymore either. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Still, the bits that work are good, Charlie, so that really is all that matters!
