Feeling Similar to a Wallflower at a Dance

Today I did a little research – reviewed statistics and facts. 

Two years submitting blog posts and the occasional hiatus with good reason.

It’s difficult to understand how a person with thousands of fans winds up with only a few likes. How is this possible? 

In my profession this retiree – a full-charge bookkeeper – had to balance the books each month. 

There appears to be something amiss with the numerical figures I witness when accessing blogs.

Humans by nature compare – quality versus quantity.

Although I’ve touched on topics pertaining to my personal life,  I refrain from offering up all the embed details.

Where do I fit in? I ask myself that question.

Not a prude by nature; however, I refuse to write trash.

It’s becoming more apparent (similar to the dating world) the genuine nice man or woman isn’t in demand.

Life hasn’t always been easy and no desire to write about all the dirty laundry – saving that for an actual book.

To those who have befriended me I say “Thank You” – to others well it would have been nice to have known you.  

Maybe the next two years will be different – new content – always hope – remain positive in thought – healthy mind.

I shall sit alone with my thoughts as how to progress – continue blogging – hoping for more interaction and more fans.

The other option is return to my favorite past-time for decades where at the end of the day each step moving forward gave me great satisfaction.

Time is precious! I don’t wish to waste it! – I tried my best! The future awaits! God Bless!



An Avid Bookworm – Poem

Times referred to as nerds
Majority educated voices heard

Years recent active senior retiree
Hobbies writing ‘n  reading devotee

Lifetime dedicated consistent learner
Creative seamstress finance bookkeeper

Often alone thanks to empty nest syndrome
Fondness reading page turner substitute chum.

Reading Preference Overload

Library’s shelves collections books
Categorized genres ‘n sub-groups look

Altogether undecided plagued lack of time
Literary selections numerous second floor stairs climb

Thankful for freedom browse experience
Suggested book club reads usable influence

Sudden nostalgia checking out choices library’s front desk
Days teen’s summer reading requirement list quite modest

Gone forever days high school friends ‘n honor role plateau
Persistence choosing game eenie meenie miney moe sans nouveau.

Unforeseen Makeup Malfunction

Invited guest
Graduation fest
Happenstance next
Total hilarious best

Standard morning routine
Makeup matching skin tone
Dab white here dab white there
Yikes recognition self nowhere 

Regain composure careful thought
Apartment temperature quite hot
Globs makeup flow from tube color white
Normal blends skin color medium hue light

Member Caucasian race
Mirror reflection scary face
Mime stares back at me
Unusual reaction unimaginable foresee

Thankful recent purchase extra makeup
Who'd thought heat create ingredients break-up
Bottle versus tube lesson product guarantee
Natural look anti-aging return correct shade Whoopee!
