The Shadowy Tip Of Reality

“This highway leads to the shadowy tip of reality: you’re on a through route to the land of the different, the bizarre, the unexplainable…Go as far as you like on this road. Its limits are only those of mind itself. Ladies and Gentlemen, you’re entering the wondrous dimension of imagination. . . Next stop The Twilight Zone.”

~ Rod Serling, Screenwriter, Born: December 25, 1924 – Died: June 28, 1975

The Key Of Imagination

“You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension: a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into… the Twilight Zone.”

~ Rod Serling

The Twilight Zone (television series), opening narration (1961)

9:14 p.m.

it is evening

which means it is dark

the streetlamps are on

me…sitting on the couch

trying to think of what to

write along with the useless

drivel that i’ve been coming up with

maybe come tomorrow the brain

may produce something useful to

put into words

we’ll see what happens

To Much

“I used to say, ‘Things cost too much.’ Then my teacher straightened me out on that by saying, ‘The problem isn’t that things cost too much. The problem is that you can’t afford it.’ That’s when I finally understood that the problem wasn’t ‘it’-the problem was ‘me.’”

~ Jim Rohn

1:58 p.m.

the sun did

not disappoint

shining brightly

with lots of

puffy white clouds

with that said

took a walk

on the boardwalk

which runs parallel

with the river

and its never crowded

which is a good thing

11:29 a.m.

got to see

blood work

results online

and my A1c

is 5.8 a

a glucose level

of 117

which is down

from the last test

earlier this year

the A1c then was

6.0 a level

of 125

so I feel good

knowing that

I’m doing the

right things

and eating right

and drinking

plenty of water

also no insulin

needed…which

is nearing two years

and so

think i’ll sit

and wait out

the heat

and sticky

feeling outside

and enjoy the

comforts of the a/c

and slake my

thirst with water

with a cup

or two of caffeine

so…. that’s what

i’ll do

and so

took a walk

in the heat

very few people

out and about

came home

dragging my ass

the a/c felt great

now i’m relaxing

knowing my

glucose reading

is excellent

tomorrow will

be hotter

do i dare to

venture out…

i’ll play it by ear

so

it is a saturday

it is june

it is hot

to hot for this time of the month

some say climate change is a hoax

i beg to differ

but no use arguing

with people in denial

then i ask myself

do people in denial

like being that way

or

do they live miserable lives

quality time

sit down…take a load off your feet, and have a cup of coffee…we can spend some quality time having a gab fest…most any subject works for me…we can keep it light, or on the heavy side…in between is okay too…so…what ever floats your boat…

and

its sunday afternoon… sitting on the couch, tv is on… laptop across my thighs… going through emails… blog posts… doing digital crosswords… its a good day for it… as the rain is streaking at slanting angle… brewed some french roast coffee… so it will help me to function properly without getting sleepy eyed…

me

this is me writing

to me and to

me alone

me needs only

to know about me

and me is the one

to know anything

me is currently

doing besides

writing about me

which is amounting

to nothing but

empty words concerning me

so with that said

its me who wishes

all of you a wonderful

day knowing me wrote

this drivel

Philosophically Thinking

oh to be young again … nah. it would be nuts wanting to be of a younger age … i’m better off now, knowing what i know now from past and present experience, even though it is a known fact, that while i’m still at my age of 72 years, equals to the amount of times i spun around the sun …and so far i would say it was a fun ride, with some ups and downs thrown in for good measure…so here i am thinking or rather contemplating am i better off now, or was the past better…which could be yes/no/maybe…as i write this so-called essay on a philosophical thought, i would say that i like where i am right now…which is one second, a minute, an hour, a day…whatever…

okay so

today i am tired

why am i tired

when i slept

pretty good

even though when i

woke up in the

morning, i was still

groggy

then it could be

that i am tired

of being tired

if there’s such

a thing as being

tired of being

tired

oh well

at least i am while

writing this

so-called drivel

of a post

Three Years

Three years ago today {May 14}, I was being transported by ambulance to the local hospital. When I arrived, the nurses worked on me right away, and kept feeding IV bags. Also the were keeping me awake, as they thought might go into a coma, as my sugar reading(s) were going through the roof.

Since then, I have learned how to control my sugar, by watching what I eat and drink. And the best thing is that I don’t need insulin. So, with a mind set of doing what has to be done, it will all work out, including with being at the ideal weight too.
