I love this poem… it speaks to me. Thanks for the re-blog!
I don’t need to participate
in the politics
of what people think.
It’s only their programmed prejudice.
I don’t need great wealth
only time to myself.
I don’t need to be the best
I just need to know

I stopped trying
for other things
and the peace I have
is better than the false promises
of the world.
where people don’t go
in the things
people don’t understand.
I visit them
and they make sense to me
but only me
and in time
the world may even pity me
but that’s only because
what I want
is not understood by the world
and I’m thankful for this lack of understanding
because it proves
what I have

This storm that went through Friday night just rattled and rolled my Peonies, and my Red Poppies also were whipped. (I have some shots of the poppies, too. The wind also littered the back yards with leaves and twig-branches that were detached by the wind. It also completed the destruction of the Lil Kim Lilac, which had bloomed profusely that day and day before.
Reblogging this excellent post by Jan Sikes about genetic writing talent.
Hello, SE’ers! This is Jan Sikes, and I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to post my first blog on this site. It is truly an honor to join such a diverse and talented group of writers. Today I want to talk about a topic that I’ve had on my mind a lot lately as I watch my granddaughter grow and develop a talent.
CAN THE WRITING GENE BE HEREDITARY?
This is a question I have pondered, as I watch my nine-year-old granddaughter craft stories. She has quite the imagination and can sit down and churn out a short story in no time. Her latest was about a nine-year-old girl named Cleo, who discovers that she is a direct descendant of Cleopatra. The little girl, Cleo, also finds that she has secret powers. I was amazed when I read it. Needless to say, it is in…
