–About Life, Love And Living

The storms have passed through the night and the sunlight peeks from behind the clouds.  You can hear bird songs and it brings a peaceful feeling.  We ponder what gifts life will bring us today and it is up to us how the day will be.  It is our day.  We own how we react, our emotions, and how we treat others.  For a moment we will embrace the quiet as it is a special gift.  Be grateful today, embrace gratitude and find kindness in your interaction with others.

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.

  1. Hi Larry, I am behind on everything but, I cannot agree more with Joel! I do not even need to add to his lovely words except to say, keep writing. The problem is for me is I just cannot keep up with it. Taking a line from Robert Browning, you are an excellent example of unleashing creativity in the ”last of life for which the first was made.” Thank you, my friend. 💖

  2. Breathless…you have talent in writing great articles. I bet everything flows straight from your heart and mind, through the fingers and lo and behold – there are great words of wisdom! Do mind if I share your articles on twitter and linked-in?

  3. Larry, never mind your 40 years of Retail experience where I am sure your talents shined brightly. You are a Picasso with a pen. You leave readers like myself lusting for more words to hang on to. Thank you for continually bringing beauty to this world. TAKE hold of your talent and fly away on Eagles wings so the whole world can know of your talent.
