Boomer’s Ramblings “I’m ramblin'”

I decided that I needed to come in here and put something to paper….er……computer screen. Anyway, I don’t like to just come in here and babble about my day. Mainly because I do not find it all that interesting.  I don’t do anything real fun or exciting, and I am not the type to just ramble on about me. If I do not feel it is interesting, I am sure you won’t either. I can tell you I am in the middle of a nine day run and that tomorrow (Saturday) is day five of that nine. I can also tell you that by the time I am done with Wednesday I will have worked twenty out of the last twenty-three days. I can shed some light on how hard it is to come in here and put thoughts  together being this tired. I watched a movie the other day via netflix. Il Postino. The Postman it was about a man that wants to be a great poet. His life crosses paths with Pablo Naruda, who teaches him to not only be a good writer but how to stand up for what he really wants. Pablo used a lot of metaphors and It struck me I never really write that way but I love the style. So I have decided to do more of it.  I can also tell you all that I would love to learn some languages. This movie was in Italian with subtitles. It would be nice to be able to watch a movie like this one and not need the sub-titles. Unfortunately at this time I cannot afford to take classes, so it is hard to study, especially since I am by myself. I want to learn Spanish, Italian, and ASL (American Sign Language). I do a little studying now and then, I think it would actually be easier if I had a class room full of fellow students and a teacher standing over me with a ruler and a night stick. Maybe she should put down the ruler, I can imagine those really hurt. You know this is the point in my life where I can look back and say I should have payed more attention. I should have taken better classes, I could have studied harder. I would have a better job, hell maybe even a career. Now that my kids are grown having to manage their own lives, somewhat.  I think it is only a matter of time before they start thinking the same thing. Especially since times are so hard now. When they do start looking back and reflecting on how many times they wish they would have listened to me, I can sit back, smile, and say nananananana I told you, I told you. Hopefully my grandkids will listen. Well it is getting late thanks for listening oops reading I hope to see you all soon!!

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.
