DRINKING ALCOHOL TAUGHT ME HOW TO FLY
THEN IT TOOK AWAY THE SKY

Friday, April 23, 2010

OK, OK...snicker all ya want. I feel as one just now released from an 8-day Detox Center for "Bloggers Anonymous". The initials sound like a college degree, right? Well, for me, abstaining from the blogging world is nothing but suffering. My last post here was 8 months ago...that's a LIE. It only seems like 8 months, it was eight DAYS!--grin.

The truth is that I LOVE writing, drawing, poetry, music, blogging and learning. If God wishes to help someone here--even if it's me--that is a bonus! I cannot try to be teacher or director, but merely a student of life--for...ever!

I seek not new Peeps, comments, accolades, followers, etc. Just I will post when and what I feel like writing. I have learned these past eight days who is important--or rather who is NOT important--and that is me! All is well!

Never too young to love, or too old to die...or something! See if you can spot the lyrics in my 55 words

Great to have you back. It felt like eight months here, too! Nice 55. Mine is up as well at http://bit.ly/8dt963. Take care and have a great weekend!

Sh@KiR@ CK said...

How sweet is that?
Why are you crying?
Memories are good for you, sometimes!

Mine is here

Have a FANTASTIC FRIDAY now!
hugs

PattiKen said...

Sweet, but I too am wondering why you cry now.

Jess Mistress of Mischief said...

Sorry can't help the LOL

Is it desire that wells up inside you a God inspired desire to carry love and understanding...

Is it desire to have someone reflect it back to you?

Is it just what it is and nothing more.

Doesn't matter, I'm glad to see you again my friend!

Jessie said...

there are many unanswered questions here...maybe they'll be revealed on a later post???

Wendilea said...

We all crave love and attention Steve... some addictions are worth keeping. Glad to see you back!

Anonymous said...

8 days without your head patted or your ego stroked. That must be a record for you.

Steve E said...

ANONYMOUS: Yep! A record. YOU make it 9 days--grin!

WENDILEA: Those addictions we cannot be rid of, might just be OK? I've gotta read you more often.

JESSIE: Unanswered questions? After all--it IS only a poem--grin!

JESS MISTRESS OF: Have to answer things like that face-to-fac--maybe next August? Hmmmm? Big MAYBE

PATTI-KEN: It's a poem...It's a POEM! I can be stting laughing at the able, and yet cry in the poem, right? Wrong? I'm open to suggestions (another change?).

Shakira: Thanks for dropping in. I do not cry any more...unless....

CHITOWNGREG: Guys like you I DID miss, but you went no place--I did! Glad to be here "wasting time" again--grin!

JOHN: You are one sharp cookie, always surprising. A sad song you referenced today. But we shall neither weep, nor LOL.

G-MAN: How nice of you to comment so KickAssedly on my blog--I've already got one for next friday!

DULCE: What can I say? You are/have been the nicest Peep to me, through a long winter--so helpful to an old guy. Love ya, too!

BRIAN MILLER: May be something missing, after all--it is ONLY 55 words. I'll have to remember better, maybe est not to go there?

dAAve: You got a point. Guess I made the point.

Jingle said...

cute 55,
you are smart about love...

Nevine said...

What a fabulous 55, Steve! Very touching and, though there is the childlike element, it is about all of us. I cry, too. And, it's really good to have you back... Again. Hey, since when does anyone put boundaries on what we can and can't do with our blogs? You can quit and come back whenever you like... I say! :-)

Nevine

steveroni said...

NEVINE: Now THAT is the kind of support I expect here--not the "I have blogged every single day since 1956, and if you do not, you are not a blogger..." LOL Thanks! I bow to you as the writer extraordinaire on these blogs...

JINGLE: Smart about love? You do not really know me then. Married four times, and would have been at least eight, if it were not for these damned inhibitions! LOL

Ces said...

Eight and five! What hussy! HAHAHAHAHA!

WELL WELL WELLL! I AM SO HAPPY TO SEE YOU come out of the barn.

HAHAHAHAH! WHY are you punishing yourself. I am laughing because I am so much like you in this regard. I subject myself to rules that make me suffer and it proves nothing. I think Geminis like to torture themselves because they feel guilty that they are having so much fun!

I am so happy you are back. Isn't that silly? I hardly even knew you.

Ces said...

Oh by the way, I am a coffee lover but no flavored coffee. I want the real ones. I like that coffee picture on the sidebar.

Zanejabbers said...

Nellie Jane. Steve! An eight year
old cow? My grandmother had one named Nellie Belle. NOPE NEVER WITH A BOVINE or any other female. No bull.

I'm sure a Lambda Meeting can be arranged. I'm still wondering about those wide doors in the back of CRV.

Joe said...

Welcome Back!

Garnet said...

Hey Steve, you old wanker. You leave, turnoff your comments, don't let me say goodbye... and then you're back.
I am delighted to see you. Goofball. Don't do that again.
:)

steveroni said...

ZANEJABBERS: Nellie Jane was NOT a cow at age eight, just a little heifer. I have lots of "Nellie Jane" stories, but when she got into high school, she met "men" who owned their own bicycles, and I became an instant "bad memory"...

But hell, man, you KNEW all that!

steveroni said...

Joe: Thanks. See ya later today, might even read your blog --grin!

GARNET You are right, It was rude of me to not write an amend note, and then--well, then, just CHANGE! (Again!) (sigh!) Still learning...on thing is to "Never say never..." as dAAve reminded me (first commenter above.

Me said...

Wow, that is an unusual love story, and a great 55.

Thanks for commenting on my blog as well. :)

Ed G. said...

Good to see you here.

Blessings and aloha...

Garnet said...

Personally the thing I found hard is when you left without giving me a chance to say goodbye. Too many suicides and sudden deaths in my life. How much I'd like to have one more conversation with them all...

Anyway, that morbid thought aside, please don't make amends for coming back! I love your attitude, dude! It's a pleasure to have your smiling face around.

Katherine said...

Oh so sweet Steve! Childhood love so sweet & innocent and obviously in this case never forgotten! What a precious memory to have! And I adore the photo of the barn too...did you take this photo...it's superb!
