Dare to be different
It's not all black and white
Sometimes you'll catch 'em going left
when they ought to be going right~

Dare to make a difference
There is no turning back
Sometimes what looked black and white
turns out to be white and black~

Do not tuck tail and run
Do not your opinions hide
If the majority is facing North
show 'em your smiling Southern side~

Sometimes the tide is turned
on one different point of view
If you've got one ... show it
For a new wave of direction
may well depend on you~


*Look for 'Another View' to follow ...

Margie girl beloved heart sister and healer of nights fears, your writing is always superb and this is no exception. Your ability to write causes me to always smile and think. You put forward a bold and wonderful concept always show who you are, and not what the crowd necessarily think you are.

As always every time I read you Iím both awed and struck dumb with wonder. And if you say if this is you being dumb I canít wait to see you verbose, Iíll Ö.. well I donít know what Iíll do but it will be dire

Wonderful writing darling heart utterly utterly wonderful, I love it utterly utterly utterly, and I love the piccy too  


Love and warm stuff
As always
Mushy


Breathe through the heat of our desire
Thy coolness and they balm
Let sense be dumb let flesh retire
Speak through the earthquake wind and fire

Marge,
My mother taught me this as a young boy. It came in handy for my adolescence. Awesome write perfectly illustrated.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Being different is fun. Being so different that you stop traffic is even funner.

My southern side
Is too darned WIDE
For people to be knowin'!
This may be trite
But in each stripe
There's Marge's wisdom showin'...

Loved the pic... loved the poem. *S*

Oh, I am different enough, just don't know if it is a hendrence or a blessing.  The nice thing about it is that I can pretend to be oblivious to things that bother me and convince myself of it.  You approach life differently as well and it took me awhile, but I do catch on.  Thanks for making me walk in that field that day almost two years ago.
