Living Life

Here's the poem I wrote for a contest in March. The key word was "life." To Live Life You Must… Always notice rainbows Listen for laughter Inhale sweet scents Dance with no music Enjoy morning coffee, wine Take walks, explore nature Touch, kiss, hug Celebrate when it’s not a holiday Be spiritual but not preachy Appreciate good friends, family Have lazy days Be productive, too Soak up learning Be yourself Pass it on. (No hubby, it doesn't rhyme, and yes, it's still a poem.) What are some of your favorite ways to live life?


  1. My all-time favorite way to enjoy life is to travel. Would go, go, go, 365 days a year, if I could.

  2. BTW--enjoyed your Quotable Quote. How appropriate with all the Mark Twain/Samuel Clemons anniversaries that are occuring this month.

    Tessa Mcdermid will be blogging this month about some of Mark Twain's short stories. I hope many of you will "pop over" and add to the discussion.

    My new 6-worder: Mrs. Fairbanks' group--Mark Twain's critiquers.

  3. Ginny, I love to travel as well. Really enjoy seeing new sites, how people live (especially in other countries) and love the fact that I don't have to cook while traveling!

    Didn't realize it was Mark Twain's anniversary. Glad you made the connection.

    P.S. You're officially hooked on six! :)

  4. Traveling, my "thing."
    Horse races, river cruises--
    Real or imagined.

    Haikus, six-worders--yes, I'm hooked.

  5. BTW--FYI: 175th anniversary of Mark Twain's birth--came in with Halley's Comet.

    125th anniversary of Tom Sawyer.

    100th anniversary of Mark Twain's death--went out with the next appearance of Halley's Comet.

  6. Whoops! Anniversaries occur this YEAR not month--Tessa's blog is for this MONTH. Duhhhh! Forgive my "senior moments."
