Flip-flopping letters and words form sentences that make sense of something that was never really there. Expressing the sesquipedalian burrows of my mind makes for an interesting passing of time, which you will find here. To be clear, this is just a play, a game, a making fun of life when life gets all too monotonous. Do not take this seriously, it is seriously semi-serious in nature. What can be found through the ceaseless typing of one's thoughts onto a page? Let's find out...

JourneyHolm: A flower is a flower
and certainly not a rock,
unless you call a flower a rock
and mean flower when you say rock.

JourneyHolm: Each year we live
is another tireless step
up the mountain of life.
I only hope
that when we reach the top
there is a sled
to carry us down
the other side.

    DIS-illusioned: But, isn't coming down the other side akin to sledding down from life--into death?? *Gulp!*
    I'd rather just hang out on the top, thanks.
    March 2, 2016 at 12:55AM
    JourneyHolm: I think the top would be death and the other side the afterlife, whatever that may be.

JourneyHolm: Nothing made sense to no one ever.

    A.A.A.EXHILARATING RIDE: Mm very much hoping you are about to change that - with love, inner peace and delight!

    JourneyHolm: It's a play on words, since none can understand nothing :)

JourneyHolm: Is a dream fiction or nonfiction?
November 14, 2015 at 9:43PM
    I am Cat: good question... I'd say it's non-fiction, because it's a REAL dream... but it's about fictional happenings (sometimes)... that's one of those questions that turns around and bites at you. LOL
    November 14, 2015 at 10:09PM
    Gloria ....: Define reality. A dream is non-fiction, but yes it is still a dream and that should be stated because some pretty funky things happen in dreams.
    November 14, 2015 at 10:27PM
    michaelcahill: That's easy. I am not fiction. :))
    November 15, 2015 at 2:11AM
    nor84: I'd say it's fiction wearing a cloak of nonfiction -- they never make sense, or at least mine don't.
    November 15, 2015 at 5:50AM
    JourneyHolm: I think it would depend on how you express the dream to someone. The pretense of the dream really changes a person's interpretation of what happened.
    I think we have the ability to see pretty far into the future and somehow steer our lives in that direction, whether consciously or un.
    Maybe a part of us is the future like a part of us is the past. Even though I feel like dreams are technically nonfiction, I'm going to go with fiction on this one :)

JourneyHolm: If there is a meaning to be found, then sound the alarm for it is here and always has been!

JourneyHolm: Imagine an imaginary menagerie manager managing an imaginary menagerie.

    MissMerri: I think you are in love with the sounds of words. You must be a writer. ;") This is very clever.
    August 7, 2015 at 12:51AM
    JourneyHolm: I am in love with words and word sounds! However, I did not make this tongue twister up. I just enjoy it and say it often :)

JourneyHolm: I have all these fingers
that I find hard to use
because I am a singer
now slightly confused.
What do I do
with these things on my hand?
I have no clue,
my brain feels like sand.
How do I shout
a melody and sing
when I can't figure out
how to make fingers fing?
June 15, 2015 at 6:57PM
    Dawny53: That is the cutest little thing..fingers fing.. love that..
    June 15, 2015 at 9:05PM

    CobiDawn: Very clever wording and catchy. Reading this just made me think of Dr. Seuss

JourneyHolm: I'm looking for a good, published illustrator to help me with my illustrations for "Monsters and Ghouls: Hide and Squeak". Let me know if you are interested.

JourneyHolm: If you drop a bar of soap in the dirt, is the soap dirty or is the dirt clean?
June 11, 2015 at 12:52AM
    pipersfancy: Dirt won, bar none.
    June 11, 2015 at 8:14AM
    JourneyHolm: Pipersfancy, this is the best reply I have ever gotten to this inquiry. Well done and quite witty :)

JourneyHolm: Have you herd this one? Whilest driving around California, we saw some cows walking up and down a really steep hill. They had some nice calves...
June 8, 2015 at 12:25PM
    William Walz: Reminds me of the story I read on the internet the other day about the first cow abortion. The mother was decalfinated.
    June 8, 2015 at 3:57PM
    JourneyHolm: I heard that fact at the moosium.
    June 9, 2015 at 8:51AM
    evilynne: It's a very mooving story.

JourneyHolm: You must be one in your body before you can become one with the universe. Eyes are the doorways of the mind. Close them. See what cannot be found.
June 7, 2015 at 12:37AM

JourneyHolm: Frustration should lead to innovation, so, inventors, beget solutions to the confusions that you see. Let this be an inspiration to succeed. Heed these words. Move towards that which you desire. Ignite the fire of passion, forget the rationing of your time, and find that the best part of life can be right now.

How? Plow forward like a bull seeing red. Get it in your head that no one can stop you but yourself. Recognize that your wealth resides within and lift your chin to see that the light is shining in your own eyes. The surprise will be how your dreams pan out, because after you shout to the world what you want to manifest, all you have to do is continue trying your best and the universe will lead you down the right road.

Let loose the load of strife that you've been carrying all throughout life. It's like a knife twisted in your side that you hide from your friends as you are twirled to and fro, reluctant to show the pain that you feel. Even though it's real, you pretend that you don't care. You share mere fragments of your soul and use the rest to feed the troll that you've invented to keep you company during times of depression.

The moment of hesitation has passed. At last, you can break free and see that you are completely resilient to the brilliant scam that has been pulled over your eyes for far too long. Now that you're strong, rise up and take on whichever challenge that you wish to overcome. Recognize that, as a rule of thumb, things will be difficult at first. You'll burst from the starting line, climbing over any obstacles in your way. However, one day you?ll fall and call your efforts a waste of breath.

Whether or not you believe these lies will be the true test that allows you to either realize that there is a desperate need to push on or if you'll be cast aside, gone from the world and ready to hide behind whatever deception you choose to believe next so that everything will seem alright. Your heart will fight inside your chest for you to try your best once again, but, in the end, it might not win.

Let it be known that this is a great sin, the quitting of your quest. Lest you wish to become old too soon, I suggest you festoon yourself with the armor of spirit. Hear it calling your name once again. This isn't the end. It's only just begun.

    watergirl: Thankyou so much for that beautiful tirade. With passion we light up the world. Wonderful.
    I shall go play with the goblins and talk with my horses.
    Be happy, be bright.
    June 10, 2015 at 8:24PM
    gail galvan: Festoon, one of my favorite words....what a beauty of a passage....."Festoon yourself with the armor of spirit." and the greatest sin....i have a quote too i wrote....."To dream is not to dawdle..Rather, to dream and act is to answer life's unique quest! Gail Galvan Poetic lit pal!

JourneyHolm: I recognize my individual as a perpetuation of the perturbations of a lost society that demands feigned pedigree from an unruly menagerie hell-bent on elation.
June 5, 2015 at 11:52AM
    William Walz: My sentiments exactly! Now, once again, in english.
    June 5, 2015 at 7:50PM
    JourneyHolm: Hehe, William Waltz. I am the product an insecure society that has lost itself. This is a society that demands a flashy exterior and promotes the build up of egoic values. In my mind, though, it is like a group of wild animals believing they are prize pigs all for the sake of consuming short-lived pleasures and impressing others.
    June 6, 2015 at 1:29PM

JourneyHolm: When I get out of bed, I remember the last thing that God said, which was in my mind. I find that a reflection of this introspection first thing will bring a spring of grace into the day. It may be in the form of a cookie crumb, the use of my thumb, or some other ordinary sight. I might see it as God, or upon later reflection He'll prod at my thought until I realize the story I'd bought from the world earlier that day. If I pray for this insight, I fight against what already is. Like a wizard spinning magic from thin air, it is clear that God is here, right now. Whether in the cow or in a cloud, I can see beyond the veil. So, all hail the King of the Cosmos, the dealer of rainbows in the multifaceted hands of life. The sharpest edge of a knife cannot slice away His being. I am seeing that even the tiniest sliver that can be cut is but a drop in the ocean of God.
June 3, 2015 at 11:44AM

JourneyHolm: We are like an ocean. In our deepest depths we are calm and steady, filled with undiscovered treasures. On the surface, we rage with fierce emotion, both good and bad. Don?t ever try to feel something aside from how you feel. It would be like a wave trying to wash out another wave. It makes no sense. Let the flow! There will be storms and there will be calm. These waves are never separate from the ocean. If ever either emotion overwhelms, don?t be afraid to let go and sink down into your depths. It?s always alright down there. When you are ready, come back up and experience those wonderful waves of life!
May 29, 2015 at 12:30PM
    William Walz: Why is it that when I start floundering somebody always throws me an anchor?
    May 29, 2015 at 12:52PM
    JourneyHolm: Perhaps its the universe asking you to let go of your "control" and see where the waters take you.
