GONE TOO SOON……….


Years ago, my favorite artist ever, Michael did a song called “Gone Too Soon” that I loved. Years ago, I wrote a poem called “Gone”. Today I’m posting both. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
ALSO…..If you’re in an area of the country where you have to adjust your clock, don’t forget…..DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIMES BEGINS AT 2:00AM.

gone……
she sat down
to dine
heart
beating rapidly
dinner…
waiting

she ate
the hot
bullet
and in a flash…
gone.

I NEED YOU………….

It’s amazing how much we need each other on this planet. Too often we get into our own cocoon and act like we don’t need other people. BUT then life happens and we easily come to realize that we in fact do need other people. Whether it’s a neighbor to watch your house while you’re on vacation, or a stranger to help you pick up something that you can’t quite manage yourself, or perhaps a friend to listen when you need a shoulder to cry on……we all need someone. Sometimes the answer to your problem is sitting right next to you BUT if you don’t open your mouth, you may never know. We are placed in each others lives for various reasons. As much as we so desperately try to be independent, we find ourselves needing someone else for some reason. Here’s hoping you find that someone that you need and who needs you….
This song is by Hezekiah Walker: “I need you to Survive.”

VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD

Fitnessgrad at https://fitness9555.wordpress.com was kind enough to nominate studiotj for the Versatile Blogger Award. If you’ve never been to her site, you just must go there. Her site is all about fitness. Check her blog out and you just might get a good workout.
I am ever so grateful for her support and as we do here on WordPress, it’s time to pass it on. There are many sites who are “award-free”. I do respect their choice however, when I take time to make my nominations, I don’t take time to investigate who is/is not “award-free”. If you happen to be one of my nominees and you have an “award-free” site, please just accept it as me supporting you and what you do.

Anytime that I receive an award, I think about the first award that I received and it was from Xena at blackbutterfly7.wordpress.com
Her support really helped me to understand the WordPress process. She probably has already received this award but….here you go again.
I know that there are names that I have forgotten/overlooked but please forgive me. I have come into contact with the following sites and I wish to offer them this award as a sign of support.

AND the other nominees are………
