Boomer’s Ramblings

I have about four drafts that I need to finish.  The problem I have, is that when I start these I am in a certain mind set.  When I come back to them that mind set is gone.  Getting it back isn’t always easy.

I wonder sometimes, when I make a lot of errors while typing.  Is it a sign that I should not be doing this at this time.

One of my drafts is a post about pride.  One of the questions I have is where has all the pride gone?  I see it quite often at work, and it bothers me that people do not want to take a lot of pride in their work.  It seems like a major case of apathy has set in.

Sometimes blunt honesty can get you into trouble, but if you get caught telling little white lie to spare someone’s feelings, they may never trust you again.

I discovered there is a thin line between honesty and integrity.   You don’t have to believe me, just ask your local congressman.

If we had only done this, if we had only done that.  But, I would’ve done this, but I didn’t shouldn’t have done that.  If, ifs and buts were candy and nuts, we would all have a Merry Christmas.

I like the sun it warms me.  I like the snow it beautifies the landscape.  I like the rain it cleanses the air.  I like the breeze as it shuffles the clouds into different shapes.

I can’t think of anything else right now but here is a copy of my latest poem:


                         I Feel You
               Though I feel you not with my arms 
         I feel you with my heart.
               Though I see you not with my eyes, 
         your beauty is forever on my mind.
               Though we hold not of the hands, 
         you have touched my soul.


About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
