There was a time when I thought I knew what I was doing.
And it passed.
I don’t think I’m alone.
Haha! No, you are not alone. LOL!

I’m not surprised Priceless 🙂
Ha ha – I think it’s more like there was a time – just once when you DIDN’T know what you were doing!
Oh Stacey….you’re confidence in me is endearing. 🙂
Kind of like when I went through puberty. Gone in the blink of an eye. Have a good weekend.
Yeah….like that! 😉 I hope you and yours have a wonderful weekend.
Yes, not alone at all. I seem to experience this off and on like a broken record!
It’s kind of like Lucy and the football…..I keep trying….I keep thinking maybe I get it….. I do not 😉
He he he, no you are not alone 😀
I didn’t think so Irene 🙂
we are all right there with you -)
We have a crowd Beth.
You make me smile. And I love it! 🙂
Aw…I’m glad I can oblige 😉
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…..it´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. 🙂
haha, fun or not, if you get this poetry to ponder it is up to you to take it as a fun or not. It´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.
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.
I see your point. I didn’t think you sounded stupid at all. We were just discussing our perceptions of what we ‘saw’ or read. 🙂
hahaha, yes, and I perceived that I was stupid because I expressed myself wrongly …; )..but that´s o.k.!
You are a great sport Anie 🙂
glad you feel like this, but…let´s just forget about the buts…life will be easier……
I need to learn not to have the last word always…: )….I´ll go to 10 days holidays now, and wish you a good time Colleen!
Safe travels! Have a wonderful time Anie!
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….
You’ve proven correct, I believe, Louise. Look at all of our like feeling friends here. 😉
To echo, you are not alone.
I think we’re in a majority 1J1 🙂
I always doubt that I know what I am doing…that’s sad!
My doubt is amazing strong Heart. We’ll be sad about this together.
it is just normal, not sad, or?
It’s pretty normal, I guess. 🙂
….. And a good thing too 😍!
😉 You mean to laugh about it? 😉
You know it friend 😉
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.
I have no boring, that is for sure! 🙂
So often we have to keep going forward even if we don’t know where we are headed. Felt that way many times!
Can’t stop in our tracks, at least not for long, catch our breath and move along.
You are not 😉
😉 didn’t think so.
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!
Right????? We don’t want to inflict that kind of shock on the world!
kind of shock??? for the world??? I prefer to see my actions having only a influece on my surroundings…thats enough!
Anie this comment was said with humor. I fear our translations are getting in the way. 🙂
🙂…o.k. I´m cool and calm…; )
You are not. 🙂
Welcome to the merry band Kathy 😉
Still waiting for my ‘Just Once’.lol
😀 be vigil…..you don’t want it to happen and not notice !!
Yeah… same here…
u r so not alone!!!!!
We have a full fledged group it seems 😉
The world does tend to disagree with my moments, MBC. Ha!
What does the world know MBM??? Eh? 😉
You are not alone for sure!
No, there seems to be a group of us 🙂
Oh yaaa …they do disappear very quickly …:)
😉 Right??? 🙂
Haha yupp! 🙂
Ha! I’m a little older…I may have hit that mark twice! No more than that, though. So true!
How exhilarating to think, even fleeting, that we knew what we were doing. Sigh…..
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.
It’s that split second when you aren’t anticipating that curve ball. Every. Time.
