It's Been Such A Long Time

So much has happened in my life since I last posted on this blog. One thing living strong though, and that would be my marriage to my wife Virginia. It's been 14 years since that very special day in 2007 when we were married by the Justice of the Peace. But since then, I remarried her in the Catholic Church in such a wonderful setting back in the Philippines.

To this day, we both consider us being on our honeymoon. Yes things have changed throughout the years, but both of us are wiser from it. One thing is for sure, regardless of our shortcomings with each other, and yes, we are both human, and we do disagree at times, both of us know that there is not another person in the universe that could replace our spouse.

For me, 'the third time is a charm' is TOTALLY TRUE. I don't believe anything could surpass on how I feel about my wife Virginia. She lives in my heart, and will Always.

For at least 8 years now, I wondered if I should continue to write poems. Now that I'm retired for the last two years from IBM, maybe I can find the time. But the saying is true, that when a person retires, he/she will have less time to do things than they did when they were working.

For me, it's a case about being poorly organized at times. I start a project, and before completing it, I start another and sometimes it take a good while for any of them to get done. So it seems a little harder these days to complete things I would like to do. But again, I'm in no rush.

I'm the kind of guy that I do not let anything get to me. I tell everyone that I don't like to look back, and only look forward from today and tomorrow. What has happened in my life in the past is something I can never change. So why not strive to be better at what you do today, which will make things better for you tomorrow.

Sometimes though, knowing the above facts, I try too hard to move forward, but never seem to relax about some things. In the past when I was writing poems on this site, it would bring out the lighter side of myself, and I felt centered in my heart about what I was writing and it was definitely good for me.

For the last several years, I've been so busy, and now I'm trying to find a way to relax and express my feelings in a kind and wonderful way. My wife of all people suggested that I start writing again, so I'm contemplating to continue writing on this website.

I would like to hear the opinions of others here that visit the website from time to time. Have you wondered why I stopped writing and if I would ever write again?  Would you like to see me writing again? Many of my readers here most likely moved on, but some of them may be coming back from time to time. Maybe it's time to give my readers some new material.

If you would like me to continue writing poems on this blog, then please leave your comments. I would hope that people would want me to continue, because I feel that I can continue to contribute to it in a way to help other people deal with their lives in many ways. Regardless of when they are written, they are timeless, meaning that they are relevant now as they were in the past and will be in the future.

So please leave your comments to this post, and I'll consider what people say and I just may begin writing again..

I hope to hear from you soon...

James
