Ready! Steady! Go! It Begins Now!

Need change? Then let it happen!

Indeed. I’m always saying that it’s time for things to begin afresh. Get rid of the old, bring in the new… that sort of thing. Our entire lives have brought us to this point. The paths we’ve chosen, the detours we’ve taken, the sights we’ve seen, the memories we’ve made, the food we’ve tasted, the people we’ve met… the dreams we’ve had.

Everything.

But also, that everything is now behind us. Millions of new anythings and everythings are ahead of us, waiting to be discovered. If we want a group of particular everythings, now is the only moment we can set things in motion to reach and achieve them. We may get some of them in the next few seconds… we may have to wait a while for others. Or we may not want change, and would like to keep things as they are. That’s also a choice that can only be made now. Everything about our future begins now.

Me? I’m embarking on a new fitness regime right now. I’m toning up. My body knows it. I can feel it already.

That means weight training. Running. Sit ups. Bendy bar exercises.

World… be warned. Exercise and I weren’t exactly designed to go together, or to flow together!

But everything has been designed to change. Even, it seems, my body.

I’ll end on a rather famous quote:

Just Do It!

Right then. Let’s get to it!

Come With Me

A thousand thousand worlds await
So close your eyes, sit up straight
Or lay back, the choice is yours
As some worlds we shall explore

Turbulent skies and windswept plains
Sun-drenched beaches where it hardly rains
Sheer cliff faces, that are harsh and cold
And magical vistas that never grow old

Lakes crystal clear and fresh and cool
Full of fish within their ample schools
Exotic animals come to drink
We sit down to watch and have a think

Lightning flashes across the sky
And when thinking done we shall fly
Attached only by ethereal cord
Across an ocean, blue and broad

We reach a land charred and black
Ruined by industry from way back
Nature reclaiming what she can
But nothing like when things began

We fly again to plateaus of ice
Blues and whites, crisp and nice
Snowflakes fall, cool winds swirl
Exhale and watch your breath unfurl

As twilight settles, out come the stars
Some quite close, others from afar
We pinpoint one, our destination’s set
And with an open mind
We shall watch and see
Exactly just how good the going gets

 

Wordle: Free Mind

Deep, heavy thoughts need bringing into check,
‘Lighten up, man’,
Says one from the flower power set,
Release the darkness,
Run and sing free
Be the best for yourself and our human family
Open a new book of life,
Turn to a blank page,
Allow unfettered thoughts diminish the rage,
Write freely,
With a flourish and also a twist,
Any word that appears you wish to dismiss
Thrust the dark feelings out from your mind
Be ruthless, grill yourself, be cruel to be kind
Train yourself
To see things in a far better way
And finish with gratitude;
Welcome the freedom of a brand new day
 

The Last Weekend of the Month

Time. It certainly stops for nobody.

If I’m not complaining about the weather, I’m complaining about time.

This time it’s time. Time, my time, seems to only have two settings, slow and warp speed. Lately, I’ve had a lot of time to enjoy the first, but within the past week, the latter has somehow crept up and overtook things.

I need to make time to make time slow down again.

I shall have to take myself to one side, and just sit and be. Contemplate life and stuff, allow myself to drift between dimensions, breathe deeply, savour every moment, and align myself with the normal flow of things once again. Drifting between dimensions opens thousands of different portals, trains of thought, and gateways to imaginary realms never before tapped into. Going within really slows things down. Yes, I shall have to go exploring methinks. I’ll write about my findings, obviously!

Running around like a headless chicken is no good for anyone.
