Cry out!

Why must These tears fall,
crying, crying, into the night –
missing… missing… we have lost them,
lost them all.

Wheel of time,
you’ve hardly turned before they’re gone.
Turn back, turn back and restore,
restore to me mine!

I will hold you, hold you ever,
in thought, in prayer, in sighing breath,
my child, my sister, father, mother, brother, lover —
here, here in my heart living ever.
Here in my heart,
live forever.
Here…
And still I cry!

Divergence: “What are you willing to do today?”

I occasionally diverge from the usual content of this blog. Yes, there’s usual content..? But, many things capture my attention and interest so this inaugurates a new feature: Divergence Saturday. And, I can’t think of a better topic than health at a starter.

I’ve been following Dr. Chet Zelasko for several years now. Like me, that always helps, he likes to dig into, research, facts, why, what, and then explains it very clearly – that mean’s simply. Plus, I’ve met him and talked with him so I know that what he says here, reflects who he is, someone I trust. He blogs on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday here: DrChet – Straight Talk on Health. He posts nice and early, at least for me on the East coast, so I can read him before I get distracted by the day.

The quote in the title of this post is how Chet ends every blog about health. Whether it’s something he’s concerned about, or the answer to a question – yes, he answers questions – it always ends with something you and I can do to be better. So…

“What are you willing to do today?”

And, thanks Chet!
