"My Wonderful Life" and "A Trip to the Oregon Coast"


I have always believed in someday,
something to look forward to,
a dream, yet to come true. . .




 someday I will be younger,
prettier, healthier, wealthier . . .
someday I will find my great love . . .
be smarter,
and wiser. . . 



I will write the 
"Great American Novel,"
I will win the lottery,
I will save millions 
from some unknown danger,
I will be a hero,
someday . . .

 









maybe this year . . .















 
 
All those dreams 
that float along after me,
like helium filled balloons, 
rainbow hued and
carnival bright. . . 
reflecting the shine of my eyes . . .









 


 
 they are my untold tales . . .
the alternate universe's
vision of me . . .
the shadow that walks 
and talks 
and breaths
somewhere else







 
step through the mirror
and you will see her
living the life
I did not lead . . .

 






  and she is dreaming a dream
of being me,
walking in me,
living as me,
my unfinished tale,
my wonderful  life  . . .

Oregon Coast, Lincoln City
















 

















All pictures are taken on the Oregon Coast by me . . . late December 2010 - 


and the credit for the beauty of these pictures goes to Mother Nature . . . not me . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .   Happy New Year - 2011
