Just That Once

There was a time when I thought I knew what I was doing.

Just once.

And it passed.


I don’t think I’m alone.

    Ha ha – I think it’s more like there was a time – just once when you DIDN’T know what you were doing!

  3. Kind of like when I went through puberty. Gone in the blink of an eye. Have a good weekend.

    Yes, not alone at all. I seem to experience this off and on like a broken record!

  5. He he he, no you are not alone πŸ˜€

    you are never alone, Colleen! This is wonderful and fits really good to your last poetry: I am not. Just that time passed quickly and I guess it is good like this! I f you think you know, what you are doing means that you are more concentrated on yourself, no? If you concentrade also on others you never will be sure what will happen…, ) By the way you improove a lot in your paintings in my eyes…..itΒ΄s getting more and more minimalistic…every stroke seams to be well overthought…great!

    • I’ve always done much better with the minimalistic Anie. I prefer it. But I do like playing and seeing how far I can push myself.

      This was just a funny though I wrote down a long time ago. I just put it out for fun today. πŸ™‚

        haha, fun or not, if you get this poetry to ponder it is up to you to take it as a fun or not. ItΒ΄s really like this that nobody can know, what his actions provoke….butterfly effect…and to work permanently on his art to persuade with his aim is a good thing. i love minimalistic things aswell a lot, although my paintings are very detailled and sweet…but this is the world of children so it fits for me!

        • You are right Anie. It is up to each person who reads to interpret as they may. (Thank you for calling it poetry…it really was just a thought). I often read something that means something special to me and I have no idea what the author was thinking when they wrote it.

          • anie says:

            I like to think, that the author felt the same, becuase honestly, if an author is just inventing a situation,poetry, a story it might be really good, but it is of course much more better if the author knew and felt, what he is writing….BUT on the other hand it must be something special, because nothing is more boring as an author writing his own story, which is only a normal boring life with some make up!

            • Oh not to me Anie. I think each person has a great story to tell. I don’t think any life is boring. It’s all in how someone sees life and interprets it and shares it.

              But I have often written something, with a specific meaning to me, that others do not have the same feeling or interpretation of. I think that is the wonderful thing about writing, or anything creative. If it has to mean the same to everyone it could not be widely appreciated or long lasting. The great masters have works that have been appreciated for centuries.

                Oh yes, you are right Colleen. I expressed myself stupidly. Every life has interesting things to tell. It depends on the point of view and the art of telling it. What I meant then is rather a poor ability of narration. I just do not like it when I read a book and feel that the author’s only goal was to write down his life. These are individual sentences that are extremely unsympathetic to me. But it is not the experience that is boring, but the way it is narrated. That’s why I never will be satisfied with something I write. And yet I think that the better authors are those who not only describe but also felt the feelings.

  9. You are so so so not alone! What’s interesting is what comes next — and all the merry travelers who will confide it’s like that for them, too….

    To echo, you are not alone.

  11. I always doubt that I know what I am doing…that’s sad!

  12. ….. And a good thing too 😍!

    LOL! Congratulations, Colleen. I know the not-knowing feeling well, and find that’s where most of my growth and adventure come from. Otherwise my life would be a boring series of reruns.

  14. So often we have to keep going forward even if we don’t know where we are headed. Felt that way many times!

  15. Jodi says:

    You are not πŸ˜‰

  16. Colleen, if I ever knew what I was doing it would bring so much terror to the world that no one could stand it! Much better to just go with the flow and enjoy what is without knowing what IT is. You always make me laugh!

    Still waiting for my ‘Just Once’.lol

  18. Anya says:

    Yeah… same here…

  19. markbialczak says:

    The world does tend to disagree with my moments, MBC. Ha!

  20. You are not alone for sure!

  21. Oh yaaa …they do disappear very quickly …:)

  22. Debra says:

    Ha! I’m a little older…I may have hit that mark twice! No more than that, though. So true!

  23. Kaleigh Jade says:

    Nope. Not alone at all. The second you think you got a handle on things life throws you a curve ball. I find that this is always the case. Keep dodging them.
