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.

I tried to think of a story to write… it came out like Sleeping Beauty. I tried to write a poem. It just sounded lame. I am having a rough night fighting my depression and no words seem right. I am not really thinking clearly. So I struggle with what to write and senseless babbling seems to be the winner again.
I never had the teachers who would wrap you knuckles with a ruler. I have never met the ruler of any nation. I occasionally use a ruler to draw a straight line though. And that is about all I can say about rulers.
I hope you all don’t mind such a short post. I have my first pool therapy in the morning, so I need to get some sleep. Maybe words of wisdom will hit me tomorrow. I can only hope!

I give up
Hands in the air
I admit defeat
I hope you don’t care
That I thought
And I thought
And the right words
I found naught
But it is hard to find
A word that could rhyme
In such short time
So I put down words
Of my struggle today
And hope that tomorrow
Will be a more productive day

Sometimes it is hard to be present
Alive and focused on the here and now
The fog drifts though my head
and life takes on a haze
I read something three times
Before I finally understand
I struggle for the right words
To say what I really mean
I often just stay silent
Because the fog is bad at the time
Don’t take it as a shunning
It’s a problem with my mind
All I can do is take a deep breath
And gently try again
