Cotton Candy Floatation...

Have you ever seen
a feather floating in the wind...
rising, falling, back and forth
aimlessly tossed...going 
where ever it is carried...

I feel like the feather...

I have no direction
no waking up with determination
crossing items off my "to do list"
I ease into the day
sleeping as long as I wish
no goals, no limits
or schedules

Like I am waiting
for someone to give me
my assignment
offer a suggestion
an invitation...

I know my life
will be speeding up next month
with commitments
events, plans,
and I welcome it...

I look forward to
having a schedule busy enough
to force me into 

Floating makes my head
feel like cotton candy...

The Importance of Creativity...

Sir Ken Robinson's talk for TED (Ideas worth passing on)
discussing the importance of creativity being 
taught in schools and how historically they don't.

Oh how wonderful our children and grand children's futures would be if more of this were encouraged and appreciated in our school systems.  It is so important on so many levels to really see a person for their individuality and unique way of learning.  I think so many issues and problems would be better served and possibly avoided if one's individuality was celebrated instead of imposed with the expectation of joining the majority.

The video is about 20 minutes--but Sir Robinson's humor engages you while his ideas captivate and stimulate vision.  Enjoy....

Your Life...

"Time decides who you meet in life,
The heart decides who you want in your life,
But your behavior decides who will stay in your life.
Surround yourself with only the people who treat you well."
