September Changes

 

 

September is like no other
It's days change color and weather
No other month can say quite the same
For every day, I can feel the change

It's cool breezes start out warm, 
Changing to cold throughout every storm
The leaves change and fall 
As the Summer leaves and Autumn kisses us all

September maidens feel the change
Like the blue of the sky
Yet the color so deep
Unbelievable beauty

Maidens fall throughout and watch
Each raindropp changing through colors so fast
Yet one streak remains the same 
Of that wonderful sapphire rain.

September, unlike any other 
Holds you tight, in any weather. 
Changes come, no matter where you go

North and you'll get stormy snow
South and feel the heat of summer coming
September does this, no matter what.
Change lives within, Nothing to stop

September is beautiful 
And awesome all the same
It's hope for the future and the change
Comes swiftly as we sweep away

The Summer ends and the Autumn begins
Change is all around
With one maiden leaving 
And yet, another comes

Born into the world
Of wonderful September
The sapphire skies live on 
Through out this wonderful September

Why?

Have been thinking about people and their need for more and more money, as they somehow feel that more money equates better satisfaction in life. Nope. To love and be lived is what makes life worth living. "Life is but the memories we've created". I mean it seems like the whole world is geared at making more money, generally allowing for less time with our loved ones.

Granted, one has to work to live at least in a fairly good way. More though isn't necessarily better. You will NOT take it with you. Lying dying on a hospital bed you will reap what you have sowed. If you've been concentrating in making money, you will be disappointed for sure.

Speaking as someone who doesn't make much money and during my previous attempts to make more of the stuff, resulted in a bankruptcy and the collapse of all my RRSP's. ( I'm not to worried about making it to retirement), so I basically am living ok, money wise.

Time with my partner, my son, siblings and friends is what makes me truly rich, beyond the total sum of me financially. I don't know why everyone is so hip on making so much money so as to provide for, adult family by that time, who truly also do not NEED the money. Death is the great equalizer. No one escapes it and no one takes their money with them. Ponder this.

The only true poor person are those that have no family. No friends. No love.

Right Now

Cody passed Grade 10 - I am so proud. He starts Grade 11 - can you believe it????

Nothing much new, I guess. going to Neil Diamond on Friday.

My lover, Dwight has bought me a Sworski crystal Mickey Mouse. He (both of them ) are AWESOME!!!

Looking forward to visiting my boy in a bit. And my Dad and sisters.  Wish I had air conditioning in the car..
