Writer’s nemesis is writer’s block. Singer’s it’s laryngitis. An athlete’s is any injury. Right now my biggest nemesis is calories and fat. Do you have a nemesis?

“The measure of a superhero is always his nemesis.” – David Lyons

“My nemesis – my downfall, if you will – was relationships, and trying to fullfill them.” – Jennifer O’Neil

“Our nemesis is time, against which we have a single ally, memory, and even it betrays us.” – Sam Tanenhaus

“Restlessness is my nemesis it’s hard to just chill and sit still.” – Mos Def

For Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – nemesis


They say the old adage

“Absence makes the heart grow fonder”

Is tried and true

So how come it feels

As though you are slipping away

You rarely spend time with me

And when you do you’re so distant

Is life just weighing you down

Or is it loss of interest in me

As you walk out the door again

Going who knows where

I wonder more if this is true

“Absence – that common cure of love”

A to Z Challenge – Quotes

#AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary badge

Q is for Quotes

I had to think about this one for a while.  I could have gone with qi that nice little two letter word I love to play in Scrabble or Words With Friends.  I thought about one of my top 5 music artist Queen.  But I am going with Quotes and share of few that I like.

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams” – Eleanor Roosevelt

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” – Martin Luther King Jr

“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” – Confucius

“Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” – George Santayana

I could like a whole lot more, I am often going to Brainyquote to find new ones.  And I do get a daily quote in my email.  There has been a lot said in the past we should pay attention to.  I will close with one of my favorites…

“No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.” – Robin Williams
