Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. - Helen Keller

I Think I'll Dream A Journey...


I'm sitting here thinking to myself about so many topics, some have very little importance to me and others bear more weight. Right now I'm trying to push anything TOO serious to the back of my mind, I'll think about that tomorrow?
Most of the thoughts have been mere day-dreams, nothing remotely possible or feasible, just soothing beaches and adventurous jungles. Midnight rides on horse back, soaring through the clouds upon the shoulders of a dragon and slaying the evil-doer to rescue the one we love.(or have him rescue me, hey a girl has to let go of her pride sometime;)
Mostly, my thoughts roam to the future and what it will be like. Not so much in my own life, (I have a pretty good idea of how I would like that to go)but in the world as a whole. The human race, mankind...how it all works and what it will BE like.
I often wonder what new technology Medical Science will bring about, the advancements are amazing. It's kind of scary really...can anyone say "Face Off", though I seriously doubt that will ever be a plausible cause for worry, I'm sure there are just as many new studies that we should be worried about?
Anyway, I'm rambling, but I feel like rambling because I'm bored, J is sleeping and there is no one online that I would like to talk to right now :(. I really kind of miss chatting, (at times like this when I can't seem to sleep) perhaps I'll write a short story or poem or something...who knows? Perhaps I'll just drift away.......
To a steamy river in the Rain Forest, water crystal clear even in the deepest spots as I swim with only my feline friend, Thor, and My horse, Shasta, to keep me company in this deserted paradise of green, thriving plants and cool, refreshing waters.
Or perhaps I'll find myself...
In a land of myths and magic where anything you can think of, you can achieve and create, perhaps my journeys will collide and become one place...
Where ever I drift, I'm sure to find adventures untold and numerous treasures of great price, but with all my heart I hope to find nothing if not the wisdom to appreciate the journey I can create inside my mind...

I can see your thoughts are overwhelming you as they are screaming through the words you have written. I, also, try to push anything unpleasant to the back of my mind, but there are times when those thoughts take a stand and end up being center-stage in the fore front of my thoughts. It would be nice to have control over them but unfortunately, that usually never happens. Hang in there Scarlett and know you are far from alone in these thoughts you have. So drift off to the land of myth or that beautiful rain forest... finding solace and comfort in those magical places is a good thing... enjoy and embrace it... Finding escape from ourselves is not always a bad thing...

Take care,

RED, you never cease to amaze me and I don't think you ever will, at least, I hope not...

Now, grab your FAV pen and the first piece of paper you can find with enough space to jot this down and then repeat after me...

"I'll be right back..."
