Boomer’s Ramblings “Inspiration”

Inspiration can come from all kinds of places. I find most of mine in other art forms. I believe that this is mainly due to the fact that I can’t draw, paint, sing, and my dancing is, well better when I am half drunk and don’t care what others think. Hahaha. Sometimes, while listening to the radio, I find inspiration in the lyrics. A couple of weeks ago I was on my way to Colorado. Traveling through Wyoming the music station that came in best was country. I am an avid rock & roll guy. I do, from time to time, like to listen to a little country, jazz/blues, whatever hits me at the time. A song came on the radio it was Tim McGraw. He started singing about how he was not as good as he’s gonna get, but better than he used to be. I started thinking how appropriate it was that this song happen to hit my ears just as I was dwelling on ways to improve myself. I was thinking of how I used to weigh about 260 pounds and I am now down to 235. It is a vast improvement and I feel better about myself. However I have new goals in sight and I am determined to hit them. So, yes I am better than I used to be, but not as good as I am gonna get. Quick I got back home on Saturday and weighed in on Sunday morning. I was 232 so I lost three pounds during my vacation.

The song does go on to talk about burning bridges and dancing with the devil. I have burned a bridge or two. None of which were not intentional. On some I even through extras matches and fanned the flames along. I know not the nicest thing to do. I am not a lingerer. If I feel I have fallen from your grace, or worse yet, you have fallen from mine. I will simply move on. As for the dancing part I don’t plan on dancing with the devil. Although with some of the things on my bucket list (yes I have one) he may be trying to cut in.

I am not perfect, however, I do believe that as I strive for a better existence I can achieve just about any goal I really set my mind to. I also believe that this drive is within all of us we just need to dig down and grab it. Times can be rough. It is persevering through those rough times that makes us stronger willed. 

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.
