You, no I mean - You are the wind beneath my wings!

Updated on July 10, 2014

We all need someone to lift us up

Inspiration and uplifting.

I am a writer. I am trying to change course and write on conviction. Now I write offline in legal technical and marketing venues. I also have been blessed with the opportunity to write poetry to my lovers and express views in English from our beloved Philippine, Laotian, Chinese, Mexican and Vietnamese immigrants, along with Native Americans and the homeless communities.

It truly has been great to right for a living and in enjoy it greatly and will continue with it long after it is no longer a living but only a passion. This is how things are taken to the next and better levels in all walks of life and I intend it to be one in writing also.

A degree in Linguistic Philosophy, a life time of Anthropology, and a Doctorate in Law has blessed me to be able to understand another and write words for them.

But now I have endeavored to write with some passion. Yes there is passion in an appellate court brief but it is different.

So as we are taught I look for expert advice.

Writers are the wind beneath my wings

I love to read what they write. I love to learn what they teach. I love to ponder their poetry. I love to be inspired by their inspirationals. And I love to salivate and cook their recipe's.

Today a friend named Theresa dropped by my place for some reading. I had not seen her for a few weeks. I quickly brewed some tea, and came back to chat with her a bit. She lifted me up with a sweet warm breath of support. My buddy Chris sent something private that made me really feel good, he maybe younger but he is a dad to me. A folk named Rolly cheered my day with a warm fireplace and some good preaching. My buddy Billy had a few supportive words. And a new flame Ruth gave me some love. I could go on all day!

The classic song

So here is a song for this -- no not Bette

I suppose I like this guys range --- it reminds me of a wonderful gift given me.

Maybe I do not thank my children enough for their making me a better man. Of course my wives and wonderful parents and siblings are an updraft.

But you my fellow travellers of writing are the wind beneath my wings.

That hat looks silly in a photo but it has saved my head and neck from burn and filtered my water.

Do you know what it takes to lift someone up?

I do not know. I only know that sometimes a "hi" does the trick for me.

I will go finish finger painting with my best little buddy. But as I help him write the letter A, I will think of those who helped me to write it with meaning.

Fair enough?

Just great music

Sometimes we have to just relax

Relax and let someone else but that wind whenever and wherever we need it and let it lift us up. Lose control and just sail on that loving wind.

      An inspiring hub! Some people are blessings and some are lessons. And I am grateful for both!

      Look at that love. I feel it. Look at that reference to personal history and look at that helping me to make my hubs better. Another thing my pappy used to say as we sat outside our cabin watching fireflys and the stars begin to twinkle: "I wonder what the poor people are doing tonight"

      I think this is one of the loveliest hubs I have read in a while. You have spoken for us all here at HP. I don't believe there is a more caring community anywhere than among the friends made here.

      Love this version of 'Wind beneath my wings'. Do you know you can add a video capsule so that we can listen to it right here ?

      Your comment made me smile, 'call me anything as long as its not late for my dinner' was something my grandfather used to say.

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts

      Theresa and my Cloud, you see how you are! Gonna make me all teary eyed. Thank you two for helping me keep it real. When you feel and write it, I feel and delight in it. Oh let us not be bashful of the pain. We have been given the gift and we must share it.

      I love the meaning behind this very hub Eric beautifully expressed, us fellow writers do indeed support one another relentlessly, and some much more then others, but all in all its worth it in the end the uplifting rewards we indeed receive.

      Awesome thoughtful hub here, and its very useful to help others who have no clue how to support others today, to think about doing so for sure. Thumbs up and outta here bro!

      Good Evening Eric(h) (k) - An encouraging hub with a strong and in this day and age, much needed message. You have expressed eloquently what so many of us feel. And thank you for the kind mention and affirmation. :) A new week is about to begin. I hope that all goes well for you and yours. Theresa

      You can call me Eric or you can call me Erich or you can call me Erik --- Just do not call me late for dinner :-)

      Sorry my friend , I gave you a 'k' instead of a 'c' ......that's what happens with one eye open and waking up too early, lol.

      Perhaps I was thinking of the Viking , Erik the Great/Erik the Red.
