Triptych Closing on Mockery

is it possible to reinvent one’s self,
when creating the initial concept was agonizing
does renewal spring from where the difficulty began
or punch through the point of least resistance
do we buff the scratches out of existing relationships
or pray old human contracts voluntarily burn

can we plummet deep examining our own eyes
accepting inward mistakes and outward imperfections
daring
newness to rise up like the phoenix
if we make this leap
will you allow us to land elsewhere
or
catch us if we fall nearby…

we’d like to believe anything is possible

    • Ah, thanks Sibella. My last few posts were a bit down and a tad self-involved though I did want to put it out there. I was hoping to end on a positive note πŸ™‚
      When I hit around age 27, I finally found my smile and it has stayed with me ever since. I can now appreciate the way I came through life. Perhaps, if I came through a different way – I’d be a different sort – you never know.
      Thank you.

      and I hope all is well for you:)

      • I think it’s a good choice to put it out there, it brings a certain release, at least for me. I am glad you have found your smile, keep being you! πŸ™‚
        I am doing well, but there are a lot of unresolved issues inside of me and often I am not sure how to deal with them. When I try to lean on my own strength I make mistakes, and I have to work on trusting God and His will for my life whatever that may be and that I find particularly hard! I’ll just keep on keepin’ on! πŸ™‚
        Thanks for Your Friendship!!! ❀

      • Release it does. I was able to leave the big-haired girl behind. I do appreciate what she did for me – I keep her picture on my kitchen cork board along with many other family photos – as a reminder…
        Sibella, you are such a warm person. I hope whatever you’ve gone through and continue to go through – one day releases you enough to find consistent peace and happiness. ‘Til that day (and it will come) keep writing and arting because it all helps.

  1. “What kind of toy is this?” asked Olivia with her eyes wide open. She immediately called Lily from the bathroom where she was getting ready for school. “Grammy’s friend AnnMarie drew this herself, Lily! Look!” Of course, Lily the artist wanted to know how.

    Well done, my dear…you brought happiness to two girls (and a Grammy) first thing in the morning. – Fawn

    • Well, thank you so much Fawn. When a child compliments, you are guaranteed honesty and what a wondrous compliment it is. Thank you for sharing – you just made my day 100% more blissful!
      Please tell darling Olivia and Lily too, of course, thank you, thank you from me.
      And do tell them – I’m happier than I’ve ever been, but especially today πŸ™‚

  2. The only reason we are who we are is because of every single thing that happened to us and every choice we made. At least that’s what I believe/think. If any of those things had been different, we would not be the person we are. This is what made us. Happenings and choices all based on what we saw, thought and chose. It’s happening right this minute. We are constantly changes and being changed by those very things. It can’t be any other way, because that’s all there is. Right? Love the drawing. Looking back doesn’t get you anywhere because your thoughts and mindset is different than when you made the decisions you made at that time. It’s like asking yourself why you walked at ten months instead of eleven or why you didn’t play with more trucks or dolls than you did. You can’t think they way you once did because of what has happened to you SINCE then, so it’s kind of pointless. You are who you are and anything is possible from THIS point on. Well, you won’t be able to grow wings and fly but you know what I mean:) ❀

    • You are absolutely correct on every valid point, my friend.
      Decisions, events, times, people – all these elements commune to place us where we are going. They shape us, some molding more than others.
      Ultimately, it’s how much you allow them to or not…and then of course, there are those things absolutely out of our control and we either get through or get stuck.
      You are wise and I so appreciate your most perfect words here.

      • You are so cute:) LOL “Wise” and “perfect words,” are not often attributed to me:) Thank you. It’s just that I know you can’t think about things with the mind you have now and understand what you did with the mind you had then. Two different things entirely. Besides we always do the best we can with what we have so whatever we did, it was the right thing at the time so everything is cool.

        Unfortunately, I didn’t always do the best I could, and it wasn’t always the right thing at the right time, I knew it back then too – but alas, that was for me – growing up and managing through the maturation process πŸ™‚ It sounds as if you did it a heck of a lot better than I did.
        So I’m standing by the words, “Wise and perfect” for you πŸ™‚
        am:)

  3. I am calling this a “grand slam,” which as you well know is not quite right because it would mean 4 HRs, and you’ve done a triptych here, but darnit all if all 3 aren’t better than 3, and actually they’re better than 4 … but, hell, I knew where I was going with this metaphor when I started. Anyhoo, Miss, well done, bravo, perfecto! Reinvention is definitely possible and I keep meaning to put it on my list of “To Do’s.” πŸ™‚

    • ‘Tis baseball season. The Yankees have already started invading our family room!’ Thank you, Deb. Too kind… I really wasn’t sure about these 3 – being a tad much on the ‘me,’ but I’m digging deep in an attempt to grow in different directions.
      I can already predict – it will be a wine evening! Here’s to publishing schemes and writing/art dreams πŸ™‚

      • Ah, Cardinals fans here (well, one of us is — not me). πŸ™‚ Dig deep, don’t worry or second-guess yourself, grow (’tis springtime, after all).

      I busted out the shovel to dig way back, in fact, it may be the very same shovel I use for whacking zombies over the head πŸ˜‰
