Ah! Another Challenge

Blogging or working a Crossword Puzzle

How I love the flavor of caramel and salted caramel “the best!”

Salted Carmel asked a question — TODAY’S QUESTION

How do you see yourself primarily as a writer or a blogger, and is there a difference?

My motive for starting a blog in the first place was NOT to become a writer or blogger.  

My story begins while I was taking care of my elderly mother, who passed away at the age of 98, which was eight years ago.

I noticed after she was gone, things she wrote suddenly became a treasure to me.  While going through her things, I found pieces of paper where she scribbled words, sentences, notes, letters even her signature became things I read over and over.  I wondered why, when she was alive, I gathered these words and just tossed them.  Now it was different!

My motive to write; wanting to leave "words" to my adult children, grandchildren, and the greats coming into my little bit of life I may have left.  
However, to my surprise my blog evolved into what it is today; discovering poetry, prompts/challenges, and a way to exercise my brain.  I was born May 18, 1940, so you can do the Math and agree I do need to exercise my mind.
  
Having a blog is much better, in my way of thinking, than just sitting around working crossword puzzles.  




















dVerse, poetry

Blinded in order to See

I enjoy thinking of the mysterious ways that God works.  The older I become the more likely I ponder.  This was a poem composed last year, I re-post here for dVerse Open-Link-Night.  To join in click here to follow instructions.

Blinded by God in order to see

Boats that seem to melt or sink
disappear beyond the vast
horizon. Onward they sail.
—Yonder to and fro they go!
To the eyes it ceases; Gone!
Yet, where? We must confess them
They are there, somewhere we know!
Is truly Faith surpassing!

The eclipse —horizon as
hidden mysteriously!
Looking back through time we go!

Remember Dear Saint Paul was
Blinded by God in order
To see. Mystical is God
Indeed our Faith surpassing!
