from now on - i am collecting memories -

i spent so much time trying to live someone else's idea of what i should be - according to whose plan??

i was berated for so long for having interests for being something that was not them -

for liking to tell stories of my walks

my day - or a picture -

those assholes -

that was what feeds me - and they tried to starve me - of my life's blood -

we do not live on bread alone - we live on the experiences that give to us too!

so my sister can go vampiric on her husband -

my brother can smother his friends with pillows till they play dead - figuratively -
with his shit

i am going for walks for discovery,
fully aware they may not be planned but fully aware of the goal is to find new things to help me survive -

financially - spiritually - psychically -

here's too fulfillment

a life that is

magically and unexplainably at last
for me

Mark,

That is so good to hear. We all need to pay more attention to the magical and fulfilling opportunities that drift past us each day in our own lives.

Much love,
Larry

Mark,
celebrating even the simplist things such as a walk can make life so much more enjoyable. It is good to read about your optimism and clarity. Peace, Andrew

Mark - that reminds me a little of something I read somewhere!

You can look at your feet, and you might think that you need new shoes.

You can look at the sky, and see stars, new worlds and adventures that are just waiting out there. New journeys, new challenges, new universes.

Your feet get you where you need to go, everyone needs new shoes sometime, but everyone really needs dreams and aspirations!

Live your dreams!

Best wishes ..Rik
