traffic jam

~ ~ ~

~ ~

~

i drive in silence ~ listening to nothing

but

words

which

roll around and around

in my head ~ like the wheels beneath my feet

and

the one i hold in my hands

~

i  ponder thoughts,

build sentences,

create vignettes ~

all of which

paint

a

portrait

~ of ~

who i am

who i am not

how i think

what i don’t know

how i feel

what i see

what i fear

what i fight

what i want

what i need

what i despise

what i love

who i love

how i love

why i love

what i hope

what i dream

what

i

wish…

~

i drive in silence ~ listening to clamoring

~

traffic

in

my

head ~

~

~ ~

~ ~ ~

itty bitty note from me –

i apologize for my absence on WP.  between my boys, driving and projects with deadlines at work…i have had to place my reader on the back burner.  my time here, whether i am reading, writing or ‘talking’ is extremely important to me.  i can assure you i am still here – or on the road~~~

sleeping

      Actually I do. Many times I play no music. It is just silent and I think. I can never turn my head off, so it will never be perfectly silent. 🙂

      Thanks. As I sit in my car at 9:45 at night waiting for Peyton to get out of work. I still have to pick Jordy up at 11:30. I am truly struggling to stay awake.

        The Worshiper Of Espresso Gods world be remiss if he didn’t suggest a cup of Java. 😉

        I am now at business number 2. I would drink coffee, but caffeine is not working anymore. Just giving me a nasty headache.

        That sleep deprivation my dear. Gotta try and catch some zzzz’s somewhere!!!

      • 9. words4jp  |  July 18, 2014 at 12:52 pm

        not till tonight. i had to get up this morning at 5am. fortunately, i have no life when my boys are not with me (they are out of town with their dad and step mom this weekend), so i will most probably be in bed by 6-7pm tonight. Or at least i hope so…..

        And dreaming sweet things, I hope 🙂

      • 11. words4jp  |  July 18, 2014 at 12:54 pm

        to be honest, i really do not dream or if i do, i cannot recall. these days, i only recall the nightmares.

      • 12. Mark Baron  |  July 18, 2014 at 12:58 pm

        I am going to write you something. Something to read before sleep. I want you to read it and think of the words as you drift away. I don’t know that it will help you remember your dreams, but I hope it will make them sweeter. 🙂 I’ll let you know when it’s up!

      • 13. words4jp  |  July 18, 2014 at 1:04 pm

        you are too sweet.

        Have you ever heard the Travis Tritt song Drift off to Dream? Or Roy Orbison’s In Dreams?

      • 14. Mark Baron  |  July 18, 2014 at 1:09 pm

        I’ve heard both 🙂

    I’ll stand by various roadsides with my thumb up until you eventually stop.

      Are you going to show a little leg too? I find this works for getting a taxi;) besides I appreciate a nice pair of runners legs!

        I could try, but if I show above the knee the tan doesn’t match 😁

    spectacular my friend:) I can see your thoughts churning on the road. Sing a song and smile for me:)

      I do sing quite a bit. More in the car than the shower – this could explain why Sydnee ignores me in the car;)

        🙂 awe, I’m sure if he felt like it he would join in, he just doesn’t want to break the spell of your lovely trilling:) or he knows if he mocks, there will be no cookies later:)

    I have entire conversations with myself in my head while I’m driving. Sometimes aloud, actually. Long drives are great for introspection.

      Yes, we must chitchat. I have brought loads of work to do and, of course, I have house work……and grocery shopping before the next week of ~~~~~~~ comes along on Monday;)
