Local – WPC


It is nice to dream of traveling the world

In search breathtaking sites

Yet most of us, it is just a dream

So to wander local

To see the beauty close to home

It is what  most of us can do

Sometimes just minutes away

For there is always something new  and beautiful to see

For me a visit to the river and one of my favorite native trees

The black gum tree – Nyssa sylvatica




Tiny water droplets suspended in the clouds

As they move on the currents of air

Until the burden of its’ weight

Releases and water drops fall to the earth

To be absorbed

To flow and make it way to the sea


To move on the current of oceans

To evaporate back to the clouds


Continuing cycles


With the ebb and flow of life


Nostalgia – WPC

Kids in Brooklyn

Playing  out in the streets

Games of a bygone era

A “Spaldeen”

High bounce ball

Endless games to play



Stick ball

Where manhole covers are bases


Large circles chalked on the payment

For I Declare War On


Sidewalk handball



Hand ball on brick walls



Stoop ball on my uncle’s front steps

Memories half  buried


Like marbles in the dirt

Quest – WPC



15 Numbers puzzle

This WPC is personal to me and have I’ve given much thought to it. Yet may be off the mark for the challenge.

If you ever played this puzzle, you know you have to move numbered tiles around to get them in order.

In order to move one tile into place, a bunch of other tiles have to be moved

I think of this puzzle as part of my own life, for over the years you collect things and when others leave they leave a lot of their stuff behind

Sooner or later, you need to do something with all this stuff, move it, box it, if you just want to clean your home.

Do you sell it? Does it have any value? Do you donate it? Who wants it?

So how does this fit the category of “Quest”?

My quest going forward is to become a digital collector, take pictures of things I have and then get rid of them.

If I think I want something take a picture of it, I might view it more than if I owned it , taking up space on a shelve, in a draw, boxed away with the thought that someday you’ll have a place for it

Yard sale it, donate it and things that might have value “Craigslist” it.

Reduce, recycle, reconsider what it is that I really need or want.

A quest that  one day when I leave

Most of my stuff will be on a card
