Resolute to rid myself of resolutions

I was asked today if I am make new year resolutions. My answer was a hesitant, qualified 'yes'. They really aren't new. They are modified. I have been working on a few goals for the last two years. This year I resolve to clear the board of all those things that I have been working on. 

     If you think I've lived low budget before, hang on. You're about to experience extreme cheapskate. I am tired of being ruled by green backs. I am going to chronicle this on my blog. 

     One last swing through the house. It's very close to being cleaned out and cleaned up. 

      The new year starts with a new moon. I will focus on the new. New book. New outlook. New experiences.
It's time.

A need for the ghost of the past

"Back in my day"
     You said it so often,
While I always showed respect,
                 I didn't truly listen
I wonder what I missed,
    As I let my mind drift away,
That might be useful to me now,
                 That life is going awry.
What pearls of wisdom did you share?
    While I worried about that daily care.
Not thinking I'd end up here.
                  Could you whisper in my ear?

Because I felt the need to write something.

In the stillness of the night
I sit and try to think of something to write.
Tried all the tricks that I've been taught,
Prompts and routine are all for naught.
Tonight all that comes to mind
Are the troubles of various kind.
Bills that never seem to be paid.
The loved on that to rest is laid.
The friend having cancer cut out,
The only gift wanted, no doubt.
So here it is, Christmas in ten days,
And I sit here in a dark, dreary haze.
It's not that I don't have joy in my heart,
But that sometimes I don't know where to start.
So tonight I'll leave you with this little note;
Take your time to on others dote.
Make a memory, the moments are few
Never miss a chance to say, "I love you"    
For I love you, every one
I'll try again with the new sun. <3
