Mumbles … Dogmatic

Hello everyone… here I am stuck on another prompt.  Well, I can’t exactly say I am stuck.  I only have one thought in my head, and it just keeps repeating with no new direction I can run with it.  So, here I am to tell you, I saw a bumper sticker once that said, “My karma ran over your dogma.”  I know what you’re thinking, “But the word you should be working on is not dogma it is dogmatic.  Can’t say that I have ever uttered a sentence with that word in it.

I could always take another route and mention the movie Dogma… but here again that is only the root word and I have only seen the movie once a LONG time ago.  So much for idea number two!

Looking for quotes gave me a strike three and I am out… which reminds me.  Did any of you watch the Field of Dreams baseball game this week?  Pretty cool they way it all happened.  Never thought I would hear a baseball game where the commentator said the ball went into the corn field.  Never thought I would be able to watch (on TV only) a live MLB game from within the state.

Now that I have explained what I am not going to do.  I will finish this and post it as I am nodding off writing it.   I hope you go into the new week with positive thoughts and lots of hope.

What Did They Say?

“In the realm of ideas everything depends on enthusiasm… in real life all rests on perseverance.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Faith is as essential to the spiritual realm as oxygen is to the natural realm.” – Ray Comfort

“The energy of the crowd is insane. Twenty thousand people. It is a biggest jolt of adrenaline. It is very hard to explain. You know the old story about the woman lifting the car off her kid? It’s in that realm. You can actually hurt yourself and not know it.” – Tom Petty

“The miracle of life is not to be to be discovered only after death in some hidden, mysterious realm; on the contrary, it can be found by eating the succulent fruit of the Tree of Life and by living in the here and now, as fully and creatively as we can.” – Paul Kurtz

A to Z Challenge – I

The letter I…

Some nights are easy to write from the heart, some nights are all about my thoughts and dreams, and when I feel there is nothing left, an idea will come to me.  I have found inspiration from things around me.  Ideas can hit out of the blue – looking at a tshirt with a bird on it, a pack of gum at a store, a pile of mail on the table and so on.  Some days the ideas come fast and it is all I can do to write fast enough to keep up (but hey, my typing skills have improved over the years of blogging).  Other days I see a prompt and have to think about it for hours before the idea will form.  In the number of years since I have been writing (since I was in junior high) you would think I would run out of ideas at some point, but the words in one form or another always seem to come.  And for that I am grateful I have more ideas in me still.

Beat The Clock

The deadline is fast approaching
And words escape me
No ideas
No flow
But I keep trying
Random words
Scribbled on scraps of paper
Trying to trigger
The muses help
The clock ticks on
And my thoughts scatter
Then just when
The midnight hour
Starts creeping in
Words form from my pen
Onto the blank page
And my ideas come alive
