a hard year a good year

a hard year
a good year

in the most
difficult times

always beauty

gifts and skills
of others

stars in the night

I set goals and make lists.  If possible, I focus on one task at a time.  I cannot achieve several things at once, as when young.  At least not now.  I am sure everyone varies.

This approach is working well.  With patience, over time, I can achieve a lot.  My list is shorter than it was some months ago.  In 2019, I will set some new goals.  I began the selection of blog poems for a print book.  Another idea I have is to create a mixed-media art journal.  And always to continue here.

the years
that were so hard
and yet
they gave me
my stories

home from Sheboygan
grateful for the same roads
this long

The day is thine, the night also is thine:
thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
Thou hast set all the borders of the earth:
thou hast made summer and winter.

Psalm 74: 16-17 (KJV)
