Tuned In

Updated on December 15, 2016
Another beautiful surprise
Another beautiful surprise

Let The T.V. Roll

I try not to watch too much t.v.

When I am in the mood

I pull up a seat

Then I grab a few throw pillows and toss them under my head

I kick up my socked feet

I get all comfty and lay down on the couch

As I watch actors and actresses

Taking good humor and laughter to the next level

I love it so much

I enjoy being home

My wife and I will watch a few sitcoms

I get restless

Then I tell my wife I have had enough

I have to get up

I go on the computer and write a little

Open a book and read a few pages

I give myself time to dream

I bring out a bowl of cut up celery sitting in water out of the fridge

I try to eat a healthy snack

I could easily grab cookies or something sweet

I try to limit my junk food

Even though it tastes so good

Instead I will have a yogurt or a piece of fruit

The time passes very quickly

I can sit easily to three and four in the morning

Then I have to drag myself away

To get some sleep

If not I will never wake up the next day

I try to squeeze in all I can

It reminds me of doodling

You can doodle for an hour

During that time

Maybe ten or twenty minutes in or in the the last five minutes

You discovered something big

You feel right

The doodling becomes something special

It's times like these I live for

You have no way of knowing what was about to happen

Then when it happens

Your mind jumps on board

On a speed boat to open waters

It makes all the other times worthwhile

It was practice to get all warmed up

Where it goes from here

The skies the limit

You just witnessed lightning strike

What a wonderful thing

To see a picture or an idea develop

That did not exist a minute ago

      I would be happy to get the ball rolling with a new idea. Then we can see where it goes. I love creative minds at work. That motivates my mind to do and be more. Thank you for reading and sharing. Today is only one of seven days in a week. It sure can change and make each day after a little brighter.

      Raine Sky We all have so much great potential. It is up to us keep at it and develop our abilities. There are times when we can be lazy but then we have to step it up and push to get things done. Thank you for reading and sharing. If every person has only ten minutes a day to spare. Think of the ideas we could share. From there the progress we could make. Changing who we are and the way we think.

      That is the same with me. For my inspiration and my very heart and soul I have to have moments to enjoy some favorite videos and read a favorite book and then just sit at the PC and write and write and write.

      Nothing better than exercising a free will, doing what we know is right, efficient and productive. Life is a precious commodity and pleasing when you take time to write affecting many lives with splendor, and beauty.

      Good night.
