Mumbles … Heretic

A Bing definition of heretic is “a person holding an opinion at odds with what is generally accepted.” I don’t really have anything to write about in that regard. I have down-to-earth friends that don’t really go against the grain too often. The closest thing to being at odds is my friend that, for reasons that escape me, voted for Trump. In our joint circle of friends, she is at odds with the opinions of most of us when it comes to him. She still believes he can help us. I am not so convinced and think we are headed so far backwards it is scary. The problem with counting her as a heretic is the fact that she is not alone in supporting him.

Please forgive my poor excuse for writing tonight. My heart hasn’t really been into much of anything lately as I deal with the loss of my Dad. I need to find a little joy somewhere and it just seems very far away now. As I have been working on this post though I did get a text from a dear friend. It makes my heart happy. So here is a little something to add to my mumbles tonight…

Soaring
Old friends come to mind
As I drift through the night
Floating on dreams of yesterday
And wishing on tomorrows
A few encouraging words
And I take flight again
Flying over pain and heartache
To a happiness I have missed
For far too long
