Some people seem to think it took forever for year 2020 to finally be over. But I take exception to that. It seems to me that as soon as I turn the calendar to the next month, time zips on by in a flash; it’s the 5th, the 15th and when the 25th comes, forget it, the month is gone!

I find that I cannot keep up because time is passing by so quickly. I wonder if it is because I am immersed in my work, because I am content with my life or if there is a reason I haven’t yet discovered. But I know that time is zipping away too fast.

Monday Poetry Prompt-monument

Monuments-arlene s bice



men build ‘em

feed their egos

use any excuse,

to tell the world

how great they are

do they reflect

honor, freedom

  1. For the perfectly, slightly chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc wine that I toast to all my family, friends and acquaintances, new and long-time. I love you all dearly. You’ve helped form me into who I am today.
  2. I’ve survived 2020 by wearing a mask.
  3. That I still use my time productively as a writer.
  4. That I’ve been in touch with my first Maid of Honor and she is healthy and still single, by choice, too.
  5. For all the various jobs I worked at that gave me a full life of experience and empathy.
  6. For all the people who have entered my life and made a difference. Some turned me onto a different path…and it was good.
  7. For the angels who watch over me when I make stupid mistakes…or maybe they were just lessons to learn.
  8. Music in my life. It can create a memory to write about or to just enjoy.
  9. To have loved and been loved…the greatest reward on earth.
  10. For those who overlook my scars and impurities and like me anyway, maybe even love me in their own way.
