A New Year, A New Day, A New Me


The first two are true. The last thing up there…maybe a renewed version of the old me.

I woke up, my body hurt, my head hurt and among other things in a totally different realm, my throat was dry.

Imagine if I had been drinking.

The great part, the part that did the renewing,  was waking up on this first day of 2016 and being greeted by my lovely wife with “Happy New Year Baby, I love you” and “Happy New Year, Dad. Did you sleep well?”

That pain left quicker’n a cat can lick his…AHEM!…food dish.

I can’t think of a better way to start a day, especially the first day of a new year. Something like that can scrape the barnacles off and refurbish an old carcass right quick. (Yes, I know barnacles are on ships, not old carcasses.) It still makes a feller feel good.

I believe I can get through another day now. We’ll work on making it another year one day a a time.

Have a Happy New Year everyone. I’m gonna go jump into some family time now.

Perhaps A Twinge Of Feeling


In a past post (9 months ago) I stated that I write what I feel. I feel nothing.   Tokoni O. Uti  advised me “Everyone goes there at times. It shall pass:)”. At this date, I am still waiting for it to pass, but I believe that Tokoni told me the truth of the matter, that it will pass.

Perhaps it has passed, or I would not be writing this post.

Perhaps a twinge of feeling is returning. Perhaps it never left at all. Could it be possible that the feelings were just sleeping because I failed to share them?

Looking back over my 2015 blog entries, I realize that there are few. Very few. New followers were appearing but i failed to share with them.

Perhaps all feelings, when not shared just wither away.

I will endeavor in 2016 to share more so that I can feel more and learn of and care more for what other people feel.

In that spirit, I wish all of you a very happy and prosperous New Year.

Especially Tokoni O. Uti for the encouragement given to me when I needed it nine months ago, and will never forget.
