Hello Everyone,

October 2015

I love October, not just because it is my birthday month but because the air changes, the season changes, the time changes.

It is when we must embrace the fact that the time change will have us seeing the dark sooner. A time when the trees begin to let loose the leaves, orange, brown and yellow leaves flying about.

It is the time when the ghouls and horrors are seen in decorations, shows, movies and parties.

It is the time when we say farewell to the summer heat, smile toward the cooler weather and wonder of the winter to come.

Happy October! May there be light within you to shine upon the earlier darker hours. May the ghouls and gremlins that ring the door bell make you smile and partake in trick or treat.

May you embrace the change in season knowing... it will bring us back to Spring soon enough.

I have added a tab - Whisper my words, which is a link to my site where I post stories, poems, AndMore events and the Watcher's Journal. Take a peek and enjoy.

Enjoy!

Soul mate? or Prison mate?

I always hear people talk about soul mates (finding them, wanting them, waiting for them), I have issues with soul mate. I always wonder of the young widow. In soul mate theory is she destined to live out the rest of her life alone? 'Oh I met him and he died a month later, the next 40 years will be lonely"..??.. I don't think so........~g



Soul-mates are people who bring out the best in you. They are not perfect but are always perfect for you. ~Author Unknown


Friends will keep you sane. love could fill your heart, a lover can warm your bed, but lonely is the soul without a mate. ~David Pratt


I met my soul mate...but he didn't recognize me. ~gracey castro


You came into my life, turned it upside down and now it all makes more sense. ~Kat Given

I asked a friend (a soul mate enthusiast) 'how do you know when someone is the one for you?' 'How do you know it's right?' 'How do you recognize if your heart is just having a sadistic time with the rest of your emotions?' She said, read that book you bought. Page 55. (I guess I should read past page 28)

Page 55 and a few pages more- ~Jessica Shepherd

When it's time to let go......ask yourself....

Are you trying to analyze the person's behavior instead of listening to your heart's simple truth?

Is the person no longer who you thought they were? Do you find yourself wanting to change them into a fantasy, or back into the person you thought they once were?

Do they share the same enthusiasm in spending time with you?

Do you feel good about yourself while with them and when not around them?

Gracey's Journal - 2007


'I've come to the realization that my heart once belonged to Benedict Arnold. She betrays me...leads me to the fountain of love only to find dry sand. She leads me to the world of fantasy where an embrace is ignited by the hearts longing and not just passions call, then I wake up. She mocks me...sending me on a boat in rough waters only to land on an island that is isolated. And the pumping laughter is heard throughout my body. She is vicious this heart of mine.'

But then I think...now I think...is she vicious? Or is my heart just tired of trying to tell me something I refuse to accept?

They say you go through things over and over because you have not learned the lesson needed. Perhaps we must cry Uncle, Uncle and stop. Listen and learn so that we can then admit.......your heart is playing a trick on you. Perhaps instead of waiting and looking we should be stopping and learning; making oneself aware that they don't control the boat, the plane, the speed of light in which you find 'the one' 'the soul mate' 'the love'. We can only drive it and hope the waters are calm and the way is not lost.

Perhaps in any relationship we should stop, listen and learn. Then decide if this path leads to greater lands or if we are circling a canal over and over......

Inspire me this. Does our heart lie? Does it know better? Does it rule us? Does it give us a chance to feel things even temporarily where we would otherwise not feel it at all? I often wonder...then realize like right now...she is quiet as she tends to be when I question her, this treacherous heart of mine.

Perhaps Helen said it best...

Relationships are like Rome, difficult to start out, incredible during the prosperity of the 'golden age' and unbearable during the fall. Then, a new kingdom will come along and the whole process will repeat itself until you come across a kingdom like Egypt...that thrives, and continues to flourish. This kingdom will become your best friend, your soul mate, and your love. ~Helen Keller.

Regret, sorrow and pain

Have you ever done something that you regret?
Have you ever done so thinking the result would change?
Has the memory of it made you so upset?
The levels of morality sinking without range.

Have you looked in the mirror and held your hand to cover?
Made a choice you can't change and yet know you wouldn't?
Have you given so much that you're lost with a lover?
Have you said over and over, you shouldn't, you shouldn't?

Have you ever reached a point of self disgust?
Have you sunk so low you can't recognize your mind?
Did you find a way to walk away? Knowing it's unjust?
Have you been at the crossroad, steets Blind and Find?

How do you walk away? When do you say enough? When?
How do you accept what will not be? When do you find your self respect?
Have you looked back repeatedly to where you've been?
Did you find a way to turn it around without being suspect?

Have you ever cried until you couldn't breathe
Do you ever find a way to stop? To say no more?
Is there a way to do it without causing another to seethe?
I ask you, have you? Tell me...I implore.
