Favorite Poem – Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge

My favorite poem inspires me and feels like deep knowledge. Every time I read it, I think about how my viewpoint has changed since I thought I knew everything.

I like to muse about how I will view this same poem in a year, or two, or ten.

Yesterday I was clever,

So I wanted to change the world.

Today I am wise,

So I am changing myself.

-Rumi

Things I Wish I Were Better At


I wish I could do this, even if, ironically, I would only taste one forkful of the end result.


Then there’s something I’m good at, but am not good at making time for.

Making time to update my scrapbook journal

I wish I was better at writing catchy advertising copy. I’m taking a class, so that at least puts me ahead of cake decorating.

And just when I thought I couldn’t think of anything I wish I was better at, I have three. You see, I’m more about action than wishing.

I was going to keep this post light until last Friday happened. Now, I will add my truest thing I wish I was better at. Finding a way to end poverty. Forever. As in, no one in future generations would know anyone who knew what it was. Because I believe that poverty is at the core of many of society’s biggest problems.
