Forrest Gump and Me

Forrest Gump:  [running]    I had run for 3 years, 2 months, 14 days, and 16 hours.
[he stops and turns around]
Young Man Running:    Quiet, quiet! He’s gonna say something!
Forrest Gump: [pause]    I’m pretty tired… I think I’ll go home now.

Feeling a little Forrest Gumpish,

Bouncing off the block I’ve hit.

Out of wisdom, wit and fancy,

Wondering if it meant a rip.

Remembering the act of doing,

Just for pleasure, purpose, need.

After 99 posts, 789 comments, 14,085 hits and 489 tags, I’ve plumb run out of things to say.  Tell me something…………has it ever happened to you?


The following is a new beta ad thingy for WordPress……..

  2. Of course it happens!
    Last time I asked Faithful Viewers to suggest quotes for me; I’d take the first three and write about them.
    It was fun for me, and got me out of my ditch.

  3. Gwen – you are an inspiration of Artful Beauty & Joyful Grace… & your blog is still just a ‘youngin’ – you have so many more play-grands to share because you are such a Grand Lady.. (& your grand children will continue to give you loads of material if you’re feeling’ short inside. Let their Tallness as little individuals continue to inspire you… & if you run out of words, please share more if your gorgeous Art!!) Lots of grace, peace & Grand Ladies – Virginia : )

    Someone special to me said today it is incredible to feel each others love and support despite a few days of silence. So I say, my sweet friend, often the best of life comes in the silence…XO

  5. Beautifully written
    Yes, I think we all hit the wall at one time or another
    Its time to take some time away and refresh – refresh you thoughts and feelings and since its close to autumn – its gathering time
    There is a time to reap and a time to sow
    Maybe this is your reaping time – take and break and refresh
    Let us know how you are doing
    God Bless

    I’m getting ready to celebrate my one-year anniversary on the blog–and though I’d love to take a blog-vaca, I ALWAYS have more to share. (My stats have declined, but I’m still believing I have a purpose and plan to fulfill…) God bless you BIG!

SAY IT TO ME.........I love your thoughts
