Your House 

I felt unwelcome 
at your house
When I entered and you didn't 
respond as I thought you ought. 
You didn't offer me a place
in exactly where I felt
I'd be most comfortable. 
Your friends
talked about things 
I didn't know anything about. 
So I'm not going to come
again when you invite 
me to sup. 
Not that it should have
bothered you
that when I came to dine
I brought my own silverware, 
nor that when
you showed me your
antique heirloom lace
I hurried to tell you
about my own ancestor's trials. 
Never mind that 
I refused to come into 
the parlor when the guests
sat a bit to visit
much preferring the game
on the television. 
Next time
Perhaps I should leave
my own tea bag, 
my personal seat cushion at home
and remove my cloak
when you invite me to dinner... 
that is, if you ever
invite me

Chantaclair's Musings

January 2001

Oh that I can develop a more grateful heart.  That I could find joy and harmony, order and harmony, beauty and gratitude in my life.  Simplicity.  I'm listening to 'don't sweat the small stuff'.  He says, "you do this, and you'll find that there are few things in life that 'get to you' anymore. It is true.  I really have found that in my life, when I concentrate on the more important things, the small things simply 'go away'. 

I want to share then, my wonderful gift of a 'Gratitude Journal".  Five things a day.  Never repeating. Just five things, which when looked upon have the power to make us aware of the bright things in our lives in the wonder and the newness and the miracle of being. 


"Doc, I've got this earache….."

2000 B.C.---Here, eat this root.
1000 A.D.---That root is heathen.  Here, say this prayer.
1850 A.D.---That prayer is superstition.  Here, drink this potion.
1950 A.D.---That potion is snake oil.   Here, swallow this pill.
1985 A.D.---That pill is ineffective.  Here, take this antibiotic.
2000 A.D.---That antibiotic is artificial.  Here, eat this root.
