Poem in Your Pocket Day

Walk around with a poem in your pocket, do ya?  Well, there is a day celebrated throughout the United States and Canada just made for folks such as yourself…

That’s right, April 27th is THAT DAY!  The American Academy of Poets continues to enjoy National Poetry Month (April) by inviting you to join them, by sharing your poetry, or your favorite poetry all day!  Visit http://www.poets.org for suggestions as well as to find out what others are doing in your area!

 The beautiful thing about sharing poetry is that sharing poetry is a beautiful thing! 

 YES! I am sharing a poem with you, here… This is one I wrote for one of the Ministers in my church in honor of his 50th birthday… As this was written back in the 1990’s he has since forgiven me…

Oh, How Nifty to be Fifty

To have the freedom to say exactly what you mean

And the right to be loud, and cause public scenes

And the fashion sense to wear colors that don’t quite go together

And the forgetfulness to dress inappropriately for all types of weather

And to understand they put rails in showers

And to enjoy doing absolutely nothing for hours and hours

And to appreciate creamed spinach and toast with chipped beef

And to be able to ride the bus without having to give up your seat

And to plan vacations for warmer climate states

And to be the reason most drivers tailgate

And to be truly rewarded for your half century

With major discounts through AARP

And while you’re younger than your children and older than your folks

You’re at the right age for public ridicule and to be the butt of cruel jokes

And yet you may be thinking of all the paybacks you could send

Remember, living well is truly the best revenge!

Okay, I showed you mine, now show me yours! 

Mine to Give

Oh, dear little wish

In my heart, I feed you hope

Please grow big and strong

Take the love I have

Send it to the stars above

So it can shine bright

Tell Me a Story Returns

Following a hiatus for The Magic Happens Radio Network, we are bringing ourselves back into your ears!  A fresh podcast of Tell Me a Story is up and ready to enjoy.

The original program was a LIVE radio show which then went into archive, however we are taping everything (no more live, sorry) and it goes into podcast for listening pleasure when the time works best for you!

This half hour program is scheduled to be new each week, featuring a fascinating guest and you will be able to visit the page on the site of The Magic Happens Magazine to access ALL the podcasts in one place.

Here is the LINK to the PAGETell Me a Story

So, who is my first guest?  The darling and delightful, Tina Frisco!  Who else but a dear friend to allow me to get my feet wet again in this series.

Visit the link, scroll to Tina’s podcast and enjoy yourself!

Want to be on the show?  Well, contact me and we’ll go from there.  I will be scheduling over the rest of this week, and as I stated above, we will have one new guest a week.  While I have  couple people lined up already, I can put you in the queue.

Attitude of Gratitude

Thank you for your attitude of gratitude! Those “down times” often mistaken for moments of weakness, might possibly be your saving grace. When your body or mind are resting, you are allowing your energy to find balance. This will allow you greater access to your inner strength when needed. Embrace that time and enjoy the benefits.

 Affirmation: I am in balance with myself at all times.

I appreciate you. Love, Annette Rochelle
