THE INDISPENSABLE MAN

Sometime when you are feeling important
Sometime when your ego’s in bloom
Sometime when you take it for granted
You’re the best qualified in the room

Sometime when you feel that your going
Would leave an unfillable hole
Just follow this simple instruction
And see how it humbles your soul


Take a bucket and fill it with water
Dip your hand in it up to the wrist
Pull it out and the hole that’s remaining
Is the measure of how you’ll be missed


You may splash all you like when you enter
You may stir up the water galore
But stop, and you’ll find in a moment
That it looks quite the same as before


The moral of this little example
Is to do the best that you can
Be proud of yourself but remember
There is NO indispensable man




I will read anything at anytime.

I WOULD NOT TELL YOU

If I knew the essence of love
I would not tell you
You’d redefine it
Repackage it
Paint it pink
Sell it at an obscene profit
Then love would be trite and tainted

If I knew the birthplace of dreams
I would not tell you
You’d predict them
Dissect them
Paint them purple
Genetically modify them
Then dreams would crash to the ground

If I knew the germination of hope
I would not tell you
You’d analyse it
Apply statistics
Paint it blue
Compute a standard deviation
Then hope would wither away

If I knew the conception of poetry
I would not tell you
You’d regiment it
Destroy its flight
Paint it grey
Stack it in boxes
Then poems would never inspire

If I knew the essence of love
The birthplace of dreams
The germination of hope
The conception of poetry
I would not tell you
You’d destroy their beauty
Then your soul would die.

love people and use things instead of using

I TRY TO TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME, BUT SOMETIMES SEVERAL DAYS ATTACK ME ALL AT ONCE









LIFE IS LIKE A COIN. YOU CAN SPEND IT ANY WAY YOU WANT BUT YOU CAN SPEND IT ONLY ONCE.







REMEMBER - THERE IS ONLY ONE CHANCE TO MAKE A FIRST IMPRESSION




SOMETIMES THE HEART SEES WHAT IS INVISIBLE TO THE EYE





MAY A WARM BREEZE CROSS THE IRISH SEA TO BRING YOU PEACE AND JOY AND MAY THE SUN BRING YOU WARMTH AND COMFORT WHEREVER YOU MAY BE.







EVERYONE HAS SOMETHING TO GIVE AND HAS SOMETHING TO BE THANKFUL FOR












SIX FOOT TWO WITH EYES OF GREEN
WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE SEEN
GOT MY TEETH AND GOT MY HAIR

SO HOLD ON TIGHT I'M ON MY WAY
HELLO TO YOU - I'M PETER.K.

I hold a Doctorate in life experience.
Been there, done that, got the T-shirt,
and had them ripped of my back a number
of times. Such is life. I have been in
the Navy; The British Army
(Parachute Regiment); SAS Regiment
The Rhodesian Army (anyone remember
Rhodesia?)! I lived in Africa for many
years including three years at the
Victoria Falls, when it was but a
small village. I now live back where
I was born - The Isle of Man -
(Which is in the middle of the Irish Sea)
which makes me a Manxman. I was widowed
in 2006 by the dreaded breast cancer.
I am a poet - of kinds - and otherwise
life goes on. I welcome friends from any
Country and/or culture. .

LIVE WITH INTENTION

WALK THE EDGE

LISTEN HARD

CHOOSE WITH NO REGRETS

THE WARRIOR

I am a warrior
whose duty is to serve
my country and my people
in the cause of liberty
I have tasted the very evil of war
smelt the stench of death
seen the cruelty that man
can wreak upon women and children
with all humanity cast aside
I have looked closely into the eyes
of my enemy
and seen his silent plea for mercy
but I am a warrior
waiting for the kill
I have held a dying comrade
closely in my arms
said unspoken prayers together
as his grip tightens on my hand
and watched as his eyes glazed over
and flicker into darkness
I have wiped my blood with
that of others
on my stained and torn clothing
and looked in awe at my hands
red, as a deep sunset of life
blotted dry by the burning sun
I have sought sanctuary
wherein a man can rest safely
and not be found by a searching bullet
I have been in that grey place
trembling, bleeding, praying,
but knowing that I shall not die
for I have been chosen
to carry the dark cold memories
of mans mad destructive passion
until deaths misty mantle
allows me to join
the stark young men
who never got to celebrate
their coming of age
whose carefree years were pickpocketed
from their lives
I will hold and cherish
their memories and wait patiently
to experience deaths singular finality
and join them on the day of judgement.

PETER KELLY

And the rising of the dawn
We shall remember them

For those who serve and have served
and to all the families who have been
affected by the madness of war.

Connecting to Nature – What does this mean and how do you do it?

    
This is what I think I know:
A connection to nature is a sense of joined destiny and belonging between humans and the rest of the natural world. We may exist in relationship to each other physically distant or close but a sense of connection keeps nature close to the heart, it is intimate. Like any relationship there is a range of feelings: mutual respect, understanding, love, awe, empathy, belonging, fascination, need, happiness,  joy and on the flip side may be discomfort,  pain, sadness, guilt, longing, expectation; these in balance are also the components of wellbeing.  Our sense of connection begins when we are born as part of the natural world, into the natural world. How we  sustain that relies on our ability and willingness to recognise our conjoined destiny and do what is required to keep the spark of connection in any relationship,  make an effort! Psychologist James Hillman captured this well when he said:
“…stop imagining the earth as a good mother passive, nurturing and supportive and recognize the idea of earth to be a complex phenomenon requiring efforts of thought and imagination”
What does making an effort look like?
1. Experiencing nature. You can keep a sense of connection strong by experiencing nature often, through all the senses:  going for a walk with the dog,  gardening, feeding your fish, adventuring in the bush, swimming in lakes or the ocean, beach combing, making nature themed art, smelling the rain; even in the city you can do these things. Returning to a place or experience repeatedly, builds a stronger relationship as you get to ‘know’ more about it and collect stories of experience over time.
BUT people do this every day and they still don’t necessarily feel connected so what is needed to make this meaningful?
2. Reflection and mindfulness. Mindfulness is the name given to the moments when you are focussed with your body mind and spirit in an experience. Contradictory to its name, mindfulness usually has no mind involved at all but is just about being! Reflection however is where the mind comes in and acknowledges the feelings and actions you experienced; it is part of the process of meaning making.  Reflection about experiences in nature may be simply noticing how you feel/ felt e.g:   how the warmth of the sun is making you feel sleepy and content; how you come up with creative ideas when you go for a walk in the park; how you cry when your dog is hurt; your sense of amazement at the colours of the autumn leaves; how small you feel when you look out on an expansive view or a brilliant sunset
How do you reflect? i.e how do you become aware of these feelings and actions?
Through conversation, art and music making, thought, telling stories, writing poems, keeping a journal….anything that helps ‘bring to mind’ the experience.
This reflection creates a sense of awareness of the nature that is around you and the kind of relationship you have with nature. Depending on your experience it may be a relationship of love it may be one of love – hate, perhaps of respect but hopefully what is discovered is that we do have an effect on each other, both physically and emotionally our destinies are intertwined. This is a sense of connection and this is at the heart of wellbeing!
So to strengthen your connection to nature or facilitate this for others, my advice is this:
  1. Experience nature often and provide the opportunities for others to experience the rest of the natural world too.
  2. Help the process of reflection and meaning making by talking, writing, thinking or creating about the feelings and actions involved with the experience.
  3. Do it again! Get involved in or provide activities that expand yours and others experiences.
These actions create feelings, which nurture connections to the natural world, which create values,  which lead to caring actions toward nature, which ultimately lead to harmonious co-existence, which we call sustainability!

Teenagers are the most misunderstood people on the planet. 


They're treated like children, and expected to act like adults.
