A Trip to Oregon

Standard

Hello there! It has been too long since I’ve gotten down and dirty here. I really need to get back to my writing, but this is a start.

As a teacher with school aged kids and a husband’s flexible work schedule, we are blessed to be able to go on yearly summer vacations. We typically do the camping and hiking thing, but as my kids are getting older, they’re getting tired of my nature ways.

This year, I decided to trick them by going to Oregon where the tall trees lay and there are mounts of waterfalls, so I’d be able to sneak in some nature time. The trick was a win-win. My girls loved going on hikes to waterfalls, their eyes loved the beauty while my husband and I loved all the atraction activities.

Enjoy a walk-through of our 7-day trip:

2020 Blue

Standard

Out of the blue, a contagion hit reality.

Hysteria, Lockdown’s, a halt to life.

Yet, here we are alive and breathing.

Not a tear has been shed out of greed

nor fear. Only tears of joy to see

those who have the stregnth and

knowledge to keep our reality flowing.

Black Jack is back

Standard

Black Jack is back!

Do you jump in? Do you vibe it?

Do you lose as if your life is on a limb?

Are you running? Running from what?

Games? Corruption? Are you losing it?

Black Jack is back.

Do you run away? Do you beg? Are you lost?

Do you lie as if you’re life is immaculate? (Bwahhahah)

You LOSE! Or did YOU???

Rise-Up!

Black Jack is back.

Accept it! Live it! Breath it!

Are you running (AGAIN)? Running from what?

Winning in life? Living in peace? Making it?

Do you live your life as if you’re life is dull? (OKAY!!!!)

You chose your own cards! You chose to be free!

STOP running in oblivion!

Black Jack will win! Black Jack did win!

Walk away in stride! Walk away in glory!

You are the mighty winner!

Don’t you know?

Black Jack is back!

Did they every tell you would grow up?

You grew to a new you,

You dreamt a dream of no return,

You got high, higher than high,
