The Poem read by Oprah - composed by David Wagoner

BigHorn Sheep, North America, Webshots

Wow! This is the 499th post! Anyway, I have a poem to share from Oprah's class she's doing on 'The New Earth' which I admit I'm not involved with, but adored the poem.

But they are doing the 5th chapter about forgetting your past, something I could probably use (if I could really remember it, a short term memory problem I have. I have people around me that remind me, lucky me.)

Anyway, this poem is nice for me, because I take it as be happy with where you are, even now. Again, some more love for those scared to move at this time, that would be me really. Being stuck in now, Maybe better than being stuck in past, no? I don't know.

Yet, I feel positive when I read it, that it loves me even in my present messed up state.

This poem is by David Wagoner and I'm having you go to Oprah's site because I never know what to with the fact that it's all rights reserved. I never want to take another's work, but it's a good poem and wanted to direct all to it. Oprah read it aloud during their lesson.

Tart this truly is a beautiful poem. It speaks to the soul in so many ways. Thank you for sharing.

"Stand still. The forest knows
Where you are. You must let it find you."

Very true.

Right. It's called 'Lost' which I think many of us can relate to feeling that emotion but it says to 'Stand still' and you can trust that the forest will find you. I take that as I'm fine where I am, and at the very slow pace I'm at, it's again, okay.

It's you, dear Mysti, that told me this is clearly God's request or pull for me to rest and that helps so much for the guilt that resting often conjures (in my house).

For those who don't know, may I say ad nauseum that I spent 4 days in a hospital (it's documented on my blog) and my meds are STILL not right. And no, it's not my fault. I didn't do any of the stupid things that could get a person into having all their meds screwed up. Aw well, its the clonzepan that I went ahead and took this afternoon talking. Normally, I wouldn't type this much. Now, I seem to be having a bipolar anger moment. Worry not, this too shall pass.:):):)
To you, dear Mysti, hugs!:):):):):)

Sending you a hug. Do not let the jerk get to you. Wish they had a orb button here in blogger land, because i would orb the person and his stupid need to bother you right out of blogger land! Sometimes people piss me off. LOL ( they have this cool button in second life where one can orb another right out of the area you are in. Its a useful tool, and when people are annoying comes in handy!)

Hugs you big time. Oh check out my latest painting on my blog. Its very surreal. I would love to hear what you think.
