Broken Thoughts


Dull mind.

Words do not come easy.

Eyes bleary.

Is it the diet?

Are the kidneys on another downward spiral?

Side effects of Detrusitol SR?

Or just the weather?

Too hazed to be depressed.


Let that wash away this stupor.


Gently sleep.

A momentary escape.

  1. Hi Peter
    Just want to let you know I drop by. Take care. Hope the sun shines soon. Great banner. So lomantic, wuanderful!


    ‘Lent’ which comes from an Anglo-Saxon word, Lencten simply means spring. A season of 40 days (Sundays don’t count, they’re mini-Easters) ending on the day before Easter, Holy Saturday. On Ash Wednesday, we had the ritual of accepting our human finitude and imperfections and declaring our subservient faith in God.

    So now take a Lent. Take 40 days or 40 minutes however you choose to take it, to examine your life. Acknowledge your less than best choices. Feel sorry for opportunities you’ve missed. If you start to feel guilty or depressed, invite them in. Let them remind you that you’re still committed to something better than what you’ve had so far. And then put them to work sweeping out the negatives of the past so that when the new beginning appears, the new spiritual home beckons, the new life cries to be born you have a clean room to offer it.

    … and peace be with you, always.
