I Wish You Love - Rachael Yamagata

I began to think yesterday of all my blessings. And I found the direction I have been seeking.

"The literature of women's lives is a tradition of escapees, women who have lived to tell the tale...
They resist captivity. They get up and go. They seek better worlds."
                       Phillis Rose

My truth is this. I have been afraid to succeed. How would I handle it?  I have confidence now that I will handle it well.

"There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside you."
                  Zora Neale Hurston

I have many stories to tell, and I have many places I am going to be going to.  I will keep perspective this time.

"You need to claim the events of your life to make yourself yours. When you truly posses all you have been and done, which may take some time, you are fierce with reality."
                                                                              Florida Scott- Maxwell

"I have a sense of these buried lives striving to come through me to express themselves."
                                                               Marge Piercy

"The universe works with you and for you. It is not your enemy."
                                          David Spangler

"It is a funny thing about life. If you refuse to settle for anything less than the best, that's what it will give you."
                                               W. Somerset maugham

I believe this very day doors will be opened to me and my circumstances are about to be changed, dramatically for the best.

Have a good day all...

Still my body aches- Thomas Dybdahl

A favorite song..I have this sadness today that I can't seem to shake. I have thought of so many scenerios today from the past..From the present.

Sometimes I feel like I am alone in the world.  Well. actually I feel alone most of the time. Even with a million people in the room.  Why?

Because I am alone most of the time. And when I am around other people, I wonder if they could understand me. Most people don't know how to take me...Or so it seems to me.

I wish I could be that social butterfly at times. But I am this girl who is just happy to be at home writing and taking care of my family.   But, then inside I really want to get out of here and see the world.

It has been so long since I could do anything fun. My house has become a self-imposed prison.

I would give anything just to hop in a car and drive to Fern Cliffe or Giant City Park...

I miss driving so much and being able to go for long rides and taking pictures...

I guess the sadness stems from feeling caged..

Even though I am caged..I will sing.

Gotta go...xo Nita

Peter Gabriel - The Book of Love

Will I be found in the book of love?

I hope so..I hope so

Would you be the one writing my name down in it?

Will we remember Summer days in each other's arms? And nights looking at the stars?

I most want to remember that we took time out of each other's day, and just was, what we wanted to be

I want to remember the times we struggled so we are grateful for the times of prosperity

And when the moon is full I want to feel your arms around me...By the window as nightbirds sing

And I need you to see I am frail at times and don't be harsh with me..Heal me with love instead

I hope we are found in the book of love..You and me

by Nita Zimmerman- Skibinski @2012
I am at a loss right now at where to begin..I seek answers constantly.

I think when John died so much of me was lost. I never really wanted to admit that. And when I lost my best friend back in March 2010....It took a toll on me..Recovery...The song She Will Be Loved..I always felt it was written for me..I am that girl with the broken smile. I feel somewhat like a tornado that is full of talent..But I am not directed.  Direction is vitally important right now. I have been without a car almost for a year. My power bill is dragging me down. But I am going to make a confession right now.. I will succeed on on getting out of this quandry. I will get my writing published. I will get my bills under control. I will fight to be whole everyday of my life. I will think of others. I have lacked in that area at times. I will lose the rest of the weight I want to lose. I am almost there. I will be successful at whatever I put my hand to. Say a prayer for me, please? And I will pray for you all as well.
 Love Nita

These flowers were from my garden 4 years ago..Guess what? My Dad tilled my garden spot up and I am getting ready to plant. I am going to have tomatoes, green beans, onions, herbs, and flowers. My peach trees actually are loaded with little peaches, isn't that great?

About Me

My photo
I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.
