About

Hello and Welcome to my blog. I know there hasn’t been a lot of activity from my corner for some time now. There are reasons for my absence. I suppose one could define it as some sort of writer’s block.  It’s like I wasn’t feeling it. I was going through the motions of putting word on the page because I was obligated to do so.

Initially my words were coming from my head and not my heart. It’s not fair to you and it is not what I’m about.  So I had to step back for a moment. Take a look at where I am at. And reaffirm my purpose. If it no longer applies then what does. I don’t think what is happening here is out of the realm of normal.

As we live, we grow, we mature, we evolve if you will. If we don’t change and stand still, stagnate. No one wants to drink from that cup. So if you will bare with me for a time , it will be like a work in progress. I hope you enjoy the change. If you do or you don’t I would love to hear from you. Thank you for reading and have a great day!!!nick

    Hi Nicholas,
    thanks for stopping by my blog. I really appreciate it.
    Happy belated birthday!

    Cheers, Frances

    1. Hey Frances, thanks for the birthday greeting. I don’t have a problem with birthdays per say. But I do take issue some said connotations.. Like aren’t you getting to old to be having that long hair. You should cut it. How can you listen to that loud rock music , at your age.. Or this one really urcks me, isn’t it about time you find some one and settle down. lol I do have a retort for each of the statements, but I don’t want them to all grumpy old man to the list of condescending comments..So, I just let it go.It’s actually kind of fun to watch them get frustrated when I don’t show sign of any kind of interest or concern. Anyway, I do thank you for the birthday cheers. I will be by to check out your posts. I enjoy your write. Nick

        Nick,
        My grandma told me that the older she got, the more she liked to experience life in all its beauty and facets. I guess that´s what life is all about. To go back to experiencing life as you did when you were a child. So if you want to listen to rock music and wear your hair long, go right ahead.
        And thank you. It it great to know that someone enjoys my scribblings.

      2. wow I just wrote some words and they just disappeared.. That’s crazy. I don’t know if it went your way or into the cosmos. Sorry Frances. if you get some repeat.Anyway , where was I?

        I was saying at one point we all fall prey to the delusion of social mores.. And is no wonder this is so. From birth we are groomed to fit and be a success society

        That in itself might be a good thing. What I mean by that we want to be happy, successful , and fit in or be accepted. I take issue as to what constitutes success.Our present society measures success on a monetary scale. You got to make more money. And you must have more things.. The gim me more’s are never satisfied.You get a raise for example and you are all happy.. Your family is so proud. You are so successful.. Then you go to work the next day and find out through the gossip line that one of the common laborers that worked on the assembly line was given a promotion and a raise in pay and he is making the same rate as you are. What happened to that feeling of success?

        Success to me has to be more than money, more than that title.It’s got to stroke me deep within.

        In trying to reply to your comment I have done what I was trying not and that is to drift off subject.Case in point. We begin with our child Living the moment. All things are new and exciting. The world wouldn’t be happy til it sucks the child completely out of you. I have to agree I miss that time being care free. Wanting to experience t all To dream , relax , and play

        I guess it´s important not to let life suck the child-you out of you. I try to take the days as they come. And I try not to feel pressured by society. To get a good education, to get a good job, to marry the right guy, to procreate… I don´t think that life should follow any patterns. Life should be explored, enjoyed, cherished … even if that means that I have to be childish every once in a while.

      4. Right on! That’s what I’m talking about. 99% of the time I believe it.It ‘s that 1% that I stumble.That’s why I moved out of my folks house when I turned 18. And instead of college I traveled . My goal was to visit as many states as I could.To observe the diversity in people and how they lived life. Getting as far away from all the voices screaming at me to be this or that. I had to get some place quiet where I could hear me speak to me.

        Don’t get me wrong I am not putting down my mom and dad. Some time not so fancy, but all of or needs where met.Never went hungry or without clean clothes. They tried to teach us in the light that they knew.Wanting that better life for us than they had.I have since come to appreciate labor of love.Their words and ways appeared a little foreign to me. Look at the time zone they where a product of.Depression like we …Well we almost saw it.And the second world war. But the bottom line is it was my life right or wrong I had to decide what I would do with it. I know , Iknow it’s hard for moms to cut loose. I will never know about motherhood, but can only speculate what it would be like to carry a life around 9 months and then watch it grow.Expecting just to let go.It is all good, made it to this point. Right where I should be.Everything and everybody in our life is there with a purpose.

        I have to say, and I hope you don’t think I’m too strange.For some time now I have become quite the recluse. Reasons too complex to get into at the moment.This time of conversation helped to pull me out of my shell.. The problem with that is no one will be able to shut me up. Anyway, I got to get off this computer Thanks for your time and all you have said .it has been very cool.and take care of some things.

    1. This thing keep taking away my words before I finish.I don’t know where it goes. I actually forgot what I had there. Anyway Thanks for listening.. I don’t really open up like that. Kind of surprised myself. People usually come to me for help. Me I usually keep it to myself. So , I thank you for the nomination for the sunshine award.Another first for me. It’s a groovy thing.! I will check you later Nick

  2. Thank you for following my blog! (sorry for replying only now.) you are cool because you continue to do what you love. we both share the same passion for writing. write on!

    1. Thanks for the reply..Dialog is important. Giving us a sense of connection. Without it the blog experience is empty.. Lifeless with only letters on the page.It is only when those words are received do they come to life Receiving and giving completes the circle.

      I have tried to remain true to these words With each person I meet and follow I open up that channel of communication. Maybe it takes a little more time this way, but that’s okay. I would be lying if I said I don’t want a lot of people reading my words. Numbers are not that important ,relationships are. I would rather have a handful of folks that I am talking back and forth with, exchanging thoughts etc, Than to have a bunch of folks that the only communication we have had is a check in a likes box.

      With this said my challenge is number’s management. Some kind of a digital auto thing is not an option. It began with my pen as should my reply..

      Sorry if I get a little long winded. A simple greetings is never enough. Anyway how to hear from you again as time permits. nick.

    2. I am sorry that I haven’t replied sooner.. my computer crashed bad. thought I lost all my data. It has been a process to get it back. And a learning experience in patience and computer care. If I have already replied ignore this . I am just attempting to touch bases with all that have commented. Hope all is well you and yours. nick

    1. hello again I am so glad we have finally crossed each others path.There is room for many many more. no doubt in my mind for the planet to survive it will take more than a majority. how do those numbers work. 1+1=2, 2+2=4, 4+4=8, 8+8=16, 16+16=32 etc. etc.We , all of us, the entire planet are on the cusp of a major time shift . A major change greater than the ones before. history has recorded several shift. Each one to try to bring humanity into balance. We must stop the killing. NOW…….nick
