note to self: go outside

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." —  Henry David Thoreau credit My phone died recently. Not like died because of its charge — permanently died. I'm not the only one whom this has happened to, I'm sure, and this isn't a complaint. Rather, it's an observation on how different the landscape of my life has been without it. I've been reading more, watching more TV, doing less doomscrolling. I found that I've missed my phone a lot less and simultaneously a lot more than I expected. And I've been noticing a difference in my mental state. My mental health is, apparently, linked in part to the device I hold in my hand 99% of the time. Who knew? However, it's still been challenging lately, for more reasons than just my phone, and my sister invited me to go outside with her. Th

I'm a poet, didn't you know it?! :D

It's the middle of summer, and my feet are cold.
I could put two pairs of socks on... if I get bold
Why did I try to start off with this rhyme?
I think I just committed a writer's crime...
I need to stop but I just can't do it
I'm a poet at heart when it comes down to it
I'm not just cold but I'm hungry too
I guess, if I wanted to, I could get some food.
I'm growing tired of this rhyming game
But I kind of enjoy it even if it's lame
I decided it's been so long since I wrote anything
So you'd better read this post with lots of rejoicing
I'd make an excuse,
But what would I say? There's really no use.
I've been busy, that's true, but I've said that before
I'd better stop before I write anymore
I hope you enjoyed this post long overdue
I wrote it specifically for you, and you.
My faithful readers, even if they are few.
I'll try to post soon, it's been too long, I know.
But now it's time for me to go.
My blog entries will soon become valuable as gold.
Since it's the middle of a busy summer...
...and my feet are still cold.


  1. Hey... pretty neat! It's a wacky piece of poetry, but fun to read. Great job!
