I don't know if you got my pm. Thank you for the kind words, and to sum up my response, you keep writing and I'll keep reading cuz us single people have to stick together haha. Now, in regards to this poem: To live life to the fullest you must not wait for another age - live your life now, not for tomorrow but for today. Income? The richest lives are those that understand money and material things do not equate to any real happiness - moments that make you laugh until you cry, friends that smile when they know what you're thinking without you saying a word, a lovers breath on the back of your neck in the middle of the night; this is what life is all about. Take it from someone that drives a BMW, that is not where happiness is found (I'm trading out for a Corolla on Monday). Count your blessings: health, talent and beauty, and I'm sure that's just a start. :)

love it! i think you have captured the irony that we truly are blessed and have so much but there is always something missing in our lives and its better to find contentment in the simplicity of the quiet lives we lead then to keep reaching for that next season, next job, next wish to come try before finding happiness. thank you, this piece left me with a smile on my face but also pushed me to take a look within. thank you!
