Magic of Reading

sail away

Stay with me Oma

read to me some more.

For my mind is full of wonder

and your words

they open doors.

To travel and to ponder

over lands so far away.

Read to me Oma

and let us sail today.   Hansi Riley

Camels and Asses! (=

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel , “Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land.”

Nearly 75 years ago, (when Welfare was introduced) Roosevelt said, “Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land.”

Today, Congress has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I was so depressed last night thinking about Health Care Plans, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc …. I called a Suicide Hotline. I had to press 1 for English. I was connected to a call center in Pakistan, I told them I was suicidal…They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck!

I didn’t write this a friend sent it to me, I just wanted to share it with you, enjoy!

Mysteries of the Wind

Up again down again

round & round

whirling, rushing

all over town.

Why the hurry

and where’s it bound,

as it swirls in and out

pushing us around. 

Constantly whirling

to and fro.

Sailing the oceans

as it continues to blow.

So what’s it after

and why’s it run?

Is it chasing the Moon,

or just following the Sun?          Hansi Riley

Changing Dreams

Daydreams I had 

when I was a child

were brightly colored scenes

but as I’ve aged

they’ve seemed to change

to bright and vivid dreams

Lost Generation

This is so cool!  It’s a short *palindrome video and well worth the time it takes to watch!

A *palindrome reads the same backwards as forward  Make sure you read as well as listen…forward and backwards.

Reflections 2

The video was submitted in a contest by a 20yr old.  The contest was titled “U @ 50” by the AARP, when the video was shown, the whole room was awe-struck. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42E2fAWM6rA  I hope you enjoy it too!

Running for Exercise…sort of!

For exercise I like to run.

So I run the dishwasher

dryer,  my nylons and more!

The thing is…

I need variety in my runs!    Hansi Riley
