“In life and in death, always, always keep your sense of humor.” W.R. Copeland

When things don’t go your way
and there’s nothing left to say
turn that frown, upside down

When life gives you the shaft
don’t be gloomy, have a laugh
and laugh away those blues today

Speculation and wild rumor
take it with a sense of humor
In the war on reality
it’s the only weapon we have

Always look on the bright side of life ~ Eric Idle

“Some days I eat salads and go to the gym. Some days I eat cupcakes and refuse to put on pants. It’s called balance.” ~unknown

“Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astair did but backwards and in high heels.” ~Bob Thaves

Balance is an illusion. Stand on one foot, feel the muscles in your foot and leg shift to keep you upright as your mind wanders or the wind blows. You adjust, you stay balanced. This is life. It’s a thousand tiny adjustments, every day. ~Me to my yoga class Continue reading “3.2.1. Quote Me! – Balance”

3.2.1. Quote me – day late, dollar short


OK so Rory is the host of the “3.2.1. Quote Me!” Challenge and I can’t resist this one. Plus, I’m probably spending a little more time sitting at my ‘puter than usual because I’m “recovering” from eye surgery yesterday. I’m a day late and a dollar short on this but I, literally, spent all afternoon yesterday at the Opthalmologist’s trying to figure out why 24 hours after surgery I can’t see out of my left eye. Anyway the topic was

Identifying With You”

Ohhhh my favorite subject!

#Jusjojan day 3- Poke

It’s strange how beautiful things
have sharp edges that poke
if you’re not careful

People can be like that sometimes
you have to work your way carefully
around sharp points and edges

Until one day you find
that it’s the sharp edges
that made it worthwhile

“You are a strange kind of beautiful
the type of magic that foolish men
run away from
and run back to when it’s too late.”
~ Rudy Francisco

Beautiful Diaster ~ Kelly Clarkson

Til next time ~Peace ~JPP

#Jusjojan — Intentions

jjj-2019.jpgdancers gypsies

My first entry for #jusjojan – I find it fascinating that this is 2020, just like hindsight is 20/20, and it’s always easier to look back and criticize than to look forward and dream. I do not make resolutions they are too confining and demanding for this stage of my life. Too negative. I set intentions, visualizations of the life I would like to live this year, and I plan. How will it all come about? We shall see … we shall see.

2020 Intentions

This year I intend to live my life Louder
To sing and laugh loudly and more often
To wear more hats and sparkly T-shirts

This year I will be awed
by the perfection of a single rose
and the beauty of a weed in the sidewalk

This year I will splash in more puddles
remember that life is better barefoot
and that music is the key to the soul

This year I will dance under the moon,
stare at the night sky, read poetry
and ponder the big questions

I will cherish tiny moments of perfection
look for everyday epiphanies
seek the sacred in the ordinary

I will take a step outside
and dance in the rain
to find the mystical in the mundane

Warning — Jenny Joseph

Til next time ~Peace ~JPP
