Calendars are for . . .

keeping notes. For reminding you of places to go and places you have been. They tell you that time is marching on . . . does not stand still.

I suppose no one really wants it to.

I wish I would use my time to write poetry and stories that would bring peace, happiness, joy and all good emotions to people who read my creations.

I wish I could write humor.

  1. sounds like your writings may be taking on a new twist…why not!


  2. Love that porch at Pfeiffer House. That would inspire me. I like surprise endings, but have trouble with humor. For some people it comes so naturally. Not sure I have much of a funny bone in me. Nice thing to aim for.

    I love my paper calendar. I keep old ones for several years because sometimes I need to look back for a birthday I forgot to transfer to the next year or lose track of when I did something important. I try to choose a pretty one because I look at it everyday and there’s no way to keep living without having those precious days click off. By the way, sometimes you do include humor in your work.


    • Thanks, Dorothy. I, too, keep old calendars. Many of them have beautiful pictures, that actually can help to inspire a new piece of writing! Or so I tell myself that that is why I keep them!

    I think your wishes just may have come true.

    Wow, Freeda humor would be so different from what you do so well but a way to bring it in and keep your style would be a fun twist ending. A metaphor we didn’t expect or just something so surprising we laugh. I would love to master the surprise ending. I think you should try it, something new for Spring :0)
