Do not put your life on hold until retirement, or be so caught up in the getting and having that you abdicate the living.

Do not sit in front of a screen and watch other people having all the adventures. The world is broad and wide: get out there, see it, do it, live it.

Do not spend your life in a job that you loath, grubbing for money, always in search of the elusive promotion that leads to more stress.

Find the job that makes your heart sing and do it joyfully. You’ll never work again.

Do not stay long in company with toxic people: seek out those who encourage and support you and make you feel good, and then reciprocate. If you can.

Find someone to share your life with, someone to build dreams with to laugh and cry and talk with on matters great and small, or if to sit in comparable silence, someone who will be there for you no matter what comes.

We are here once and time is short. Let us make the most of what is given to us.

Do not put your life on hold: pursue your dreams and DO IT NOW.

While We May

Let us walk among the quiet places

of this earth, among the woods

and hills, and share the peace

that’s only found in open spaces.

Let us watch the changing light

and shifting forms of cloud

where wind and sunshine put

the shadows of the storm to flight.

Let us sit at dusk and see

the stars prick out across the sky

while blue deepens to dark

and shade is green beneath the trees.

Let us not despise familiar things

because they’re free or commonplace

and we become blind to all

the simplest pleasures living brings.

Jane Croft

Last written words from Joanna

Medieval Knights, Ladies & Romance Bogspot

Hits to Date:


I’d like to think some words of mine

Survived into some distant future time;

That someone, reading, found a thought

That resonated in his mind,

And by that means I touched a chord

In him as others long since dead

Have done in me.  And he might smile

To hear the echo of his inmost thought

Returned, and know that he was not alone.

Jane Croft

Christina Baldwin Everyone likes a good trash novel once and awhile. Spent my teen years reading these. Went as far a when I graduated the English teacher handed a back a few because I would read these instead of Le De mort Arthur, etc.
