Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Prelude to Valentine’s Day

The month of February signifies the month of love . . . the sharing of innermost feelings. Ever been in a situation where it is so-o-o-o difficult to put into words what you truly would like to express? Do the words lay stuck in your throat or dormant in your heart?  Perhaps it is nervousness fearing the intent might be misunderstood or perhaps it is simply you just don’t know what to say or how to say it.

Ah-h-h-h! The light bulb comes on and you seek words someone else has written that might be exactly what you need—the perfect greeting card or e-card. Then, the search is on! Rack after rack of card after card line the shelves of store after store where each card is identified by its category. Okay, let’s narrow the search – Valentine’s, male, female, spouse, lover, close friend, casual acquaintance, son, daughter, mother, father, mother-in-law, father-in-law, grandparent, etc. Whew! The list goes on and on. . . Oh, dear, to add to the dilemma, is it just a Valentine’s Day card or on this day is it someone’s anniversary, an unexpected visit to the hospital, a birthday? Enough! I’m exhausted just thinking about it!

With Valentine’s Day being ‘love’ oriented, the logical card would be one filled with those sweet, adorable love messages some of which have been around for eons. But, wait! We still have plenty of time to collect our thoughts on the subject of love. Let’s think about those other occasions that warrant recognition any day of the year. Before getting too intimately involved in Valentine’s (which is by the way on the drawing board), let’s see what you think of my idea for The Ultimate Card. . .
