Often enough, I read. Often enough I'll look to things that are familiar such as lists and remedies, signs that I follow on freeways, you know. I find myself lost in lists. The lists that I mean to follow to keep my mind from wandering from the reality of life and they are well kept. Often enough, they are easy to follow because I write them that way. Being careful to use good penmanship. But I have this one list, the things I meant to do. its the oldest in my collection and the only one still added to (my mind goes blank, I know I have to be somewhere to do a- thing). And I am nowhere near even the middle of this list. My saving grace is that my life is nowhere near the middle so it seems I have plenty of time. WHat doesn't save me is my heart is no longer in it. My heart is no longer in me. So God, help me find it.....please. Amen.

Awe, ladies! Thank you so humbly. @nan: This one was actually about my heart list, unfortunately, its where I last left my heart. A place that is unattainable. Maybe someone will share theirs with me, someday :). I'll post more soon. Btw, i love what I've seen in the archives from both of you! I'll be commenting soon :).
