Make this moment last

A January poem by Dylan Thomas

Because the pleasure-bird whistles after the hot wires,
Shall the blind horse sing sweeter?
Convenient bird and beast lie lodged to suffer
The supper and knives of a mood.
In the sniffed and poured snow on the tip of the tongue of the year
That clouts the spittle like bubbles with broken rooms,
An enamoured man alone by the twigs of his eyes, two fires,
Camped in the drug-white shower of nerves and food,
...
A January poem by Dylan Thomas

Because the pleasure-bird whistles after the hot wires,
Shall the blind horse sing sweeter?
Convenient bird and beast lie lodged to suffer
The supper and knives of a mood.
In the sniffed and poured snow on the tip of the tongue of the year
That clouts the spittle like bubbles with broken rooms,
An enamoured man alone by the twigs of his eyes, two fires,
Camped in the drug-white shower of nerves and food,
Savours the lick of the times through a deadly wood of hair
In a wind that plucked a goose,
Nor ever, as the wild tongue breaks its tombs,
Rounds to look at the red, wagged root.
Because there stands, one story out of the bum city,
That frozen wife whose juices drift like a fixed sea
Secretly in statuary,
Shall I, struck on the hot and rocking street,
Not spin to stare at an old year
Toppling and burning in the muddle of towers and galleries
Like the mauled pictures of boys?
The salt person and blasted place
I furnish with the meat of a fable.
If the dead starve, their stomachs turn to tumble
An upright man in the antipodes
Or spray-based and rock-chested sea:
Over the past table I repeat this present grace.

6/21/14: I should be in Oklahoma City for Level II training! Too much dental work and ambulance trips leave me with $10,000 debt. Level II will give me techniques to apply the learnings I got in Level I.

2/15: In 12 hours I'll be in the air heading for Denver where I change planes for OKC. Mostly packed except for toiletries etc. One of the Practitioners is writing a book. Here's a quote: "This is a call to your innate knowing of 2 definites: 1. You are flawless. 2. Suffering is unnecessary." Isn't that amazing? If you want in on that, contact me next week and I will help you free yourself from suffering! What a trip!!!!

2/11/14: Getting ready for OK trip next Sunday. Missed picking up my luggage from storage due to ice storm. Don't like to go to storage in the dark! Safeway delivered my groceries at 10:15 last night...driver was on his 13th hour of work!

11/14/13: Gig tonight at The Village...maiden voyage with my electric bass...excited!

11/8/13: Going to take the Level 1 Practioner's course in FasterEFT in February! I am so excited. Pray I get all my funding together, as I am also doing more dental work that insurance doesn't pay for!

10/5/13: My Oklahoma City trip was fantastic! Loved the plane ride, the layovers, everything but the long walks in the airport at Portland! Should have ordered a wheelchair! The seminar was so exciting. Saturday was teaching and Sunday was all tapping. Folks were really relieved of long-standing fears! I bought the Level I, II, and III certification package to do at home. Working at it slowly.

5/30/13: Only 2 weeks till I fly to Oklahoma City! Boy did I watch the tornado disaster? Felt like it was a friend's city being decimated! But the things that I will learn there! I am so charged!

5/20/13: Am looking forward to a weekend seminar on FasterEFT in Oklahoma City next month. Hope it's still there when I arrive! I pray that help is fast on the way to the folks that have lost their homes, and God opens her arms to the 37 that have died!

3/31/13: Have had several great jam sessions with V &D. Loving the electric bass!

1/21/13: Had the first jam session with my electric bass a week ago Friday. It was sooooo much fun! What a natural high! Going to do it again this coming Friday.

12/30/12: Worked up a couple songs today on my electric bass: "Me and Bobby McGee" and "Day Is Done." Does that bring back any memories?

12/1/12: I just bought my first electric base and amp! Been playing guitar most of my life, but even with a small size guitar my left hand starts hurting too quickly. Had a session with V & D (my sis & her husband) last night and was practicing some bass basics on the guitar. And unlike V, I CAN sing and play the bass at the same time. Ordered on line but going to pick up at Guitar Center. Both pieces had great reviews on both Amazon and Guitar Center. New changes at 73 yrs old!

9/15: I've got a new goal: 1 # a week. Figured out I would be at goal 1/21/14! 5th day of a nasty cold. Wasted my whole vaca! Need to go out and get some cough stuff, but I have noooo energy!

8/8: Spent 1.5 hours on SparkCoach...made 51 SparkPoints...45 minutes tracking food. Why is that sooo cumbersome? Didn't have time or energy for Oxycise!

8/6: Joined SparkCoach today. See what this extra shove and resources will do to my sluggish motivation. It's free for two weeks.

7/1/12: Stalled for soooo long. New short-term goal: 5#. That will be a 10% weight loss. Better for my leg, better for my blood pressure, better for ME!

2/3/2005: Have a great job, a great husband. Want to make this life last as long as possible. My latest motto is "Have as much fun as I can till I can't!" My hubby is starting to subscribe to this too.

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERs FOR MY X husband. he was among love of my life, yet it was 45 years ago. He married me too young I guess.
I don't know if he died, his best friend hasn't called me back yet. I really wanted the power of prayer to work for him since I know that he wasn't baptized but loved Jesus. thanks again. eva emoticon emoticon
