are coming for
one night soon
There is a story in here. It's waiting to be delivered. I have an established route and on this route are many homes. Homes filled with families waiting anxiously for some nourishment. That nourishment will come in the form of words. Words placed quietly at your door, barely a clink will be heard. To enjoy the soothing refreshment, you will have to shake the bottle. Grasp it tightly at the middle, homogenize it, pull out the top.
Let it run down your neck.
There, now don't you feel better?
Your mind will return to happier times when children played in front yards and dogs ran free.
Clothes hung on lines and bird houses from trees.
Farms were healthy.
Parents were proud.
Whispers were quiet, sirens loud.
Stayed tuned for more

|I had 17 views on my blog page Thursday|
After Jon's kind words and link to my blog it skyrocketed to 653 on Friday.
The door to my dream was cracked open last night.
Today the door swung wide and light flooded in.
A man I've met only three times changed it forever.
His words of encouragement transformed my dream into a mission.
There are words to pen and roads to ride.
Another story is about to unfold and life again is fresh and ripe.
People have been kind to me over my many years.
But no man has placed such well honed words beneath my name.
I am honored and a bit overwhelmed.
The wonder of this world is large.
Take a look around
You may find.
What I have found.
Encouragement grows deep on Bedlam Farm
