The Lifecycle

I sit quietly by the window listening to the rain.  The rain is like music in that it can be soft and gentle, soothing to the soul, a gentle song that will make you close your eyes and drift off to dreams.  It can be fast like a driving beat full of thunder and fury.  It makes you pause and reflect upon the joy it brings, the flowers, and the birds.  It can be a torrent, savage with power and loudness.  It makes you put your book down and look in awe at its magnificence.

The power and sound can make you fearful that it may sweep you away, yet after a while, the rain will stop. 

The air will smell clean, the flowers refreshed, and the birds return to feed.  The cycle of the rain reflects the cycle of our own life.  Let us embrace the Lifecycle that we may know life to its fullest.

Point Of View

Life is a cycle of joy and sorrow, success and failure, heartbreak and love.  This cycle allows us to live a life of learning and experience so that we may live life to its fullest yet not be afraid to dream our dreams.

Awaken the possibilities … then unleash them. After 55 years of successful retail management, I have returned to my passion of writing. I write Poetry, Storytelling, and Short Stories. As a child, I grew up on front porch storytelling. I would sit and listen to my Dad and his brothers tell these great stories that were captivating, and I always wanted to hear more. I wanted to experience the things they talked about. I started writing at a young age and reading everything I could get my hands on. At twelve years old I started a storytelling group and several of my friends became writers or poets. At 16 I hopped box cars and worked the tobacco fields, orange groves, picked cotton, and spent many nights around a campfire listing to life stories. Someone once asked me why I wrote. It consumes an amazing amount of time and I assure you it is not going to make me rich. I write so that my children can touch and feel my words telling of the ones that came before us and the stories they told me. These are the chronicles of our family and even though they come from my childhood memories and are deeply rooted in a child’s remembrance at least they may feel what it was like in the time before them and cherish the things the elders left behind. I am a Columnist & Featured Contributor, BIZCATALYST360 and I have The Writers Café, a group on LinkedIn that features Poets, Writers, Artists, Photographers, and Musicians . On Facebook I have two groups and one page; Dirt Road Storytelling, From Abandoned To Rescue Dogs And Cats, and About Life, Love And Living. As writers, it is true that we honestly do not know what we hold within us until we unleash it. When our words inspire others only then will inspiration return to the writer. I will spend my twilight years in search of the next story, the next poem, and the next image. I will take the time to enjoy my Wife, our Dogs, and Cats, and our amazing new home and I will always find the time to walk down a dirt road I truly hope is that I never have to read another book on Leadership, be on a conference call or see another plan o gram as these were the tool for what I did in life and not about who I am.
