A Bullet In The Night

Updated on June 6, 2011

A Flash Of Light Is All That You see

The day began like an other day but keep this one thought in mind

Where did my day go ?

I didn't see it happen

I felt like I wasn't even there

What happened and to whom I am still not sure

One thing is for certain this day is over and another day already is under way

Lets recap

I had work so I went to work later in the day

The morning I got up early listened to the radio a bit

I tossed around a few ideas on paper

Then I went back to bed because it was too early to get up

So instead of getting on with my day at 7A.M.

I slept closer to 10:30 Even though I went to bed at three

That is only seven and half hours which seems fine

That is about my normal sleep for me

Work was neither stressful or eventful it was just work

That sounds so sad

I ate my wifes leftovers but they were still very good

We haven't gone to the gym in weeks just so busy

With what I wonder

I am drawing a blank

Maybe this i writers block

Where the whole day just vanishes into thin air

I should of had extra energy because business was slower than normal

Instead my body was fidgedy and exausted from what I still wonder

It is like being a hollywoood actor and not remember the movie you just did

I have a slight dry cough

Maybe from a little change in the weather

My spirits should be soaring

Instead I am listening for clues

I have already looked around and see if I could see anything out of the ordinary

I came empty once again

I feel like the trashmen who after every house

Put back down the empty barrels for next time

I get to look in the empty barrels and see nothing

Well this is another day that goes in the history books

But where do I put it

With the I almost got everything I wanted done days

I have that inquisiitive feeling that something is about to happen

My eyes are shutting

It is time for bed

Goodnight All !!!

      Charlu You got to live a very exciting life.I was a giver instead.I knew know boundaries.I would give the shirt off my back if someone needed it.The only problem is someone was always in need and when I gave too much there was no one to give to me.Life is funny that way.So I gave my life away.Now trying to land on my feet after some people would say being foolish with what I had.I thought I would always be able to make more.Life was too simple.I never got to have those big toys and I convinced myself as a workaholic I didn't need that.I had to work.All the time.Then you stop thinking and living.You know how to work and do it well.Years later work doesn't mean that much.Time has passed and so are the years.Live and learn.If I only took more time learning to live I would of been better off.I will be looking for you hub and love your great comment.You have a night that you can't wait to do it again and again.

      I think my sense of gratitude and wanting to do the right thing even when it could hurt me in the process. When I was younger it was all about ME and I thought she who dies with the biggest toys wins. I was a holic from work to booze, to buying everything from the big house,big truck, best horses, tractor, wave runners (which got used twice) etc I thought being the best at everything, being independent and having lots of things would make me happy and that wasn't the case at all. Then once a counselor/pastor/life coach asked me when was I the happiest in my life and my immediate response floored me because I was without all those things Great idea for the senior discount hub I will have to work on that Make it an incredible night you and your wife deserve it.

      charlu So how is your outlook on life different than when you were younger? Inquiring minds want to know.I love that your health is good.For me that is the most important thing.You should make a hub on all the places a senior citizen can get a discount.I am sure it will be a huge success.The best fun is you can enjoy your discount each and every time.Why not use it.You deserve it.

      It's OK I feel great for 55 and honestly don't mind getting older. Believe me it goes by faster than you think. Have an incredible day!

      Charlu OOOOOOOps I am sorry about that.Retirement is so far away for me. I didn't mean to rush you either.I am happy your only 55 and I should of called my local town to check out the age of a senior citizen.But thanks to you now I know and I have only ten years to go and then I can celebrate with you.I wonder where my mind goes.I think it goes with the time I can't seem to find.Always a pleasure and thanks again.

      Great hub and I'm almost always wondering where my day went. By the way I turned 55 not 65 and I'm not retired either unfortunately. Have a good one.
