My Thinking Thoughts

 

MY THINKING THOUGHTS

MARCH 30, 2017

IT WAS STRANGE

TO BEGIN WITH

THAT MY THINKING

THOUGHTS OFTEN

BECAME REALITY

A “THINK” WOULD

POP INTO MY HEAD

AND A MOMENT

DAY OR YEARS

WOULD BECOME TRUE

I THOUGHT I WAS

PSYCHIC OR UNNATURAL

I TOLD MYSELF TO NEVER

“THINK” HARM UPON OTHERS

AND IF MY THOUGHT

DID THAT ANYWAY

WITHOUT MY CONSENT

TO TELL IT TO CANCEL

CANCEL THE THOUGHT

ERACE THE “THINK”

EVEN IF THEY WERE

ON A DISSAGREABLE

MISERABLE BEINGS

TELL THE BAD “THINK”

TO GO AWAY INSTANTLY

I THOUGHT SOMEDAY

HOW MANY CHILDREN

IN MY LIFETIME WOULD

COME TO ME AND IT DID

HOW WOULD I KNOW

AT AGE TEN THIS BLESSING

WOULD BECOME TRUE

I THOUGHT AS I GREW UP

I WOULD MOVE TO THE WEST

AND OWN A BLUE CAR

I HAD A RECURRING BAD DREAM

WAKING ABRUPTLY SHAKING

SWEATING AND FRIGHTENED

I WAS ON THE CORNER

OF A POPULAR STREET

A TRUCK, CANVAS COVERED

WOULD JUMP THE CURB

KILLING ME INSTANTLY

LEAVING THIS EARTH

I TOLD IT TO GO FAR AWAY

FROM MY “THINKS” IT DID

BUT FOUR YEARS LATER

ON THAT SAME CURB

WAS THE TRUCK JUMPING

THE CURB WHERE I HAD BEEN

I HAD HID IN A BRICK KNITCH

IN A STORE FRONT I SPIED

IT WAS AMAZING I LIVED

THAT DAY DAY I RECALLED

THE VERY DREAM VIVIDLY

PERHAPS AN ANGEL

WARNED ME TO REMEMBER

I HAD NO CLUE BUT SMILED

THAT THE “THINK” POPPED

A REMEMBERING THAT DAY

I TOLD ME TO ALWAYS

BELIEVE THE 'THINKS'

THE DREAMS AND IDEAS

THAT POPPED IN MY HEAD

LATER I DREAMED MANY

THINGS AND THEY CAME TRUE

ALWAYS AS I THOUGHT

TRUTH WAS THERE

GOOD TIMES AND BAD TIMES

THE THOUGHTS AND 'THINKS'

TELLING BAD TO PASS AWAY

DREAMS OF FINDING A TRUE

LOVING MATE CONTINUED

BECAME FAITH IN ANOTHER

ENTWINING TOGTHER

PATIENTLY WE BECAME US

A DREAM COMES TRUE

WE BOTH DREAMED

WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE

OF EACH OTHER THAT DREAM

DREAMS REALLY DO COME TRUE

THERE ARE ALWAYS FOREVER

GOOD THINGS COMINGS INTO

THE WISHES AND THOUGHTS

WHEN YOU TRULY BELIEVE

ALWAYS KEEPING A GOAL

NEVER STOPPING BELIEFS

GIVING UP SWEPT FAR AWAY

SOMEDAY SOON WHEN

LEST EXPECTED YOUR

DAY WILL COME HOME

TO HAPPINESS SOON

YOUR “THINK” WILL

BECOME A REALITY

A MOVE TO BLISS

COMFORTING AMOVE

YOUR BLESSING FOR LIFE

NEVER GIVING UP

NO MATER WHAT HAPPENS

IN THE CHAMBERS OF THE HEART

BELIEVE BELIEVE EVERY MOMENT

Change can be for the good

Rather fixed on what the future brings

Wondering who and what to trust

A change in a long relationship

May bring the future into alignment

New and self goals may work

Or could fail but why be stale

Go forward to your quest

Never  knowing  unless you try

Needless to say with the cooperation

Of one or more others guiding you

Acknowledging  sincerely  to your needs

Their actions may not support words

Remember do not expect too much

As you could sour to  a big disaster

Resulting in your slip into the blame

Because you did not think it clearly

It is always the best  interest

To watch the scenario with care

Transformations as all things

Will take time and great patience

We Believe In The American Dream

We Believe In The American Dream 

March 27, 2017

Anna from Germany

I ran and ran as fast as I could to escape

being on the other side of the wall 

My parents told me to run forward fast 

to stay with my Aunt at the farm in the country

 I was young and ran as fast as I could

 I was chased but I was young and hid 

finally getting to my Aunt in the country

 I never saw my parents again

 I grew up and married a good American man

 who brought me to America 

we have two children 

I am happy to be an American

 but I wish my parents had known I survived

Mary from Lithuania

My parents had seven children

there was very little food

mostly potatoes and onions

we were grown enough to leave

one daughter remained at home

to help our parents at home

we  six went on the ship

arriving in America 

we got jobs in the factories

studying in the evenings

to become Americans

I knew two languages

now I know three

I read the newspapers

front and back because

I am happy to be an American

Eduardo from El Salvador

I came to America to live free

I became a citizen

to practice my medicine

you see in El Salvador

I was a doctor

I am now a nurse practitioner

I could become a doctor again

but I am older and that would be time

for studying so I am happy

I am free and can walk anywhere

I am happy to be an American

Dominick from  Lithuania

I was a big strong young man helping my parents in their grocery store

The Russians invaded our country again because we were on the Baltic sea

and they wanted to use and own our shipping area

I spoke seven languages and was a great help to my parents

One day the Russian Army came to me and said I was big, strong

and not married and to be ready in a week to join their Army

I got on a ship and came to America I then went to Chicago

and worked in the grocery stores there in the daytime studying in the evening

to become an American citizen. I learned to speak American English

I married a nice lady from Lithuania who had also become an American

We both worked hard and produced seven children

three of the children died as infants in the big influenza outbreak

I lived and worked in a small town caring for my family

Some people from Syria lived there and their son, an American,

shot and killed me in my store for twenty dollars American.

He was sixteen and went to prison.

Ten years later he was released and on that day he killed another man.

Now he is in prison again.

I was so happy to be an American.

Enrique from Barcelona Spain

My paternal grandfather lived in Barcelona Spain

then went to Sonora Mexico where he fell in love

and married a Papago Indian lady

They had my Father and when he grew up

he went to Barcelona Spain and married my mother

they produced me and when I was five years of age

we went to Sonora Mexico

now that I am grown up

I came to America and became a citizen

I live in the state of Arizona and often go to Mexico

to visit my parents and grandparents I have a good job and

I am happy to be an American

Denise from France

I remember world War two

in France the bombing went on all night and day

I was quite young and rode my bicycle to the country

where I gleaned wild greens, fruit and vegetables

I brought them home to my parents to cook

my bicycle tire was broken and not replaceable

I used a broken garden hose to make a tire

after I was the age to travel I came to America

I went to the state of New York and became American

I went to school and became a Master Gardener

I am in my nineties now and quite busy at home

I am happy to be an American

John from Mexico

Twenty five years ago I came to America

to help pick vegetables and fruits

I saw how much better it was to live

I became a citizen in America

I married another former Mexican citizen

who was now an American we are happy here

I am happy to be an American

Summer Fun for Three Sisters part 4

While we were visiting out Aunt and Uncle and the week was winding down Grandpa and Grandma would drive out to the country to pick us up, We always had an outside barbq with all the trimmings such as hot dogs and hamburgers, baked beans and the trimmings. Grandma always brought something she baked or bought from the store. Grandpa always made sure to bring lots of ice cream.

We would sit outdoors on the picnic tables that were gaily decorated and covered with a red and white checked oil cloth cover. There was always music piped outside to make it ore festive. Later we would return to Grandma and Grandpas house.

Sunday our cousin would come over in her huge black car with her three children . we all loved the animals at the zoo. Mother especially loved visiting the big cats because her Aunt and Uncle went on a trip to Arizona with their two youngest children and when they left Arizona, unknown to them, an adult cousin gave their two youngsters a “kitten” in a shoe box. When they were pretty far down the road they heard the kitten and asked where they got it. the boys answered cousin Joan had given the kitty to them to take back to the country house. Not pleased having a kitty to haul back they could not just abandoning it they took it home. well after a few months they knew kitty was really a bobcat. he grew and grew and got placed into a giant cage. Uncle did not want to let him go out in the wild because he never could fend for himself so they made arrangements for him to live at the zoo. He was a gentle cat and a beautiful cat so he got donated to other zoos to visit his lady friends. Mother always looked for DIABLO when at the zoo. Sometimes he was there and other times he was on loan to the Chicago zoo.

Soon it was time to get back on the road again and take our bus trip to Lawrence Massachusetts a town thirty miles outside of Boston. Our Father’s mother lived there and we would stay with her a few weeks before returning to California. We loved our Grammy Mary so much. What a sweet and loving lady she was to us. she had come over to America from Lithuania a long tie ago. She said she traveled with her siblings on the boat to America to make a new life. Once she landed on American soil she and her sisters stayed in a boarding room and slept four to a bed. We asked how could you do that and she told us by sleeping sideways so they all could fit and keep warm. She knew two languages then learned American English and worked in a sewing shop while learning to become an American citizen in the evenings. Soon she did become a citizen of the United States and was a very proud accomplishment her whole life time. Later on she also met her future husband who had also come to America on a previous boat. He also knew seven languages and became a citizen of the United States learning American English. Once they met and were married they came to Lawrence, Massachusetts and he opened a grocery store. It was a two story building so they lived upstairs and the business was downstairs.

We never got to meet our Grandfather as he was deceased but we had wonderful times with our Grammy Mary who lived in the same store upstairs over what now was a barber shop. one of her daughters lived there with her and on days she was not working she would take us to historical places or the beach with another lady and her children. What fun we had with the Little family. They were all happy and noisy children yelling and laughing which was something we did not get to do a lot back home when our Father, who liked quiet, was around.

Mother would walk us down to the old town where the Mills were and we got to pick out nice socks and other items to take back to California for our new school year.

we did get to go to our friends cabin up in Wells Maine. He and his wife were such nice people. We went outside and picked and picked wild Maine blueberries to take back to Grammy Mary. She made a lovely blueberry soup out of them. After visiting Grammy it was time to return back home.

That is just part of my story because we made many trips to visit families in the sumer time.

I am little sister Claudia remembering our childhood.

Summer Fun for Three Sisters part 3

Summer Fun for Three Sisters part 3

March 25 2017

Every time we arrived at the Greyhound bus station Grandma and Grandpa were there to greet us. On the way to their house Grandpa would stop for ice cream. We could have anything we wanted but Grandma always had a berry shake and Mother would have a chocolate shake. we stayed at their house most of the time and part of the time we stayed at our aunt and uncles house that was only nine miles away out in the country. Our cousin Ken was lots of fun out there in the country.

Grandma and Grandpa lived in town and had a little dog called Penny. Our cousins and other kids came over to Grandma and Grandpas house and we had fun playing in the backyard. Sometimes we went to the zoo and the art museum and other various places. Our Mother always enjoyed going to the Egyptian display at the Art Museum because it had always fascinated her when she was a young girl.

We loved the zoo especially the petting zoo within. Being around the small animals was a lot of fun because we were allowed to pet them and give big hugs. The fourth of July was really exciting because we got to go to a stadium where we could sit in the stands and watch the fireworks in a safe place. The only thing we did not like were the mosquitoes because we rarely had them at home in California.

Once when were were in the country at out Aunt and Uncles house our Uncle decided he was going to have the eating area covered in paneling. He told us we could all draw anything we wanted on the walls then it would be covered like a time capsule for someone to see in the future. We just had to sign our names and date the drawings. Who knows those drawings may still be there after a good forty years.

Our Aunt always set a beautiful table right down to the flowered tablecloth. Her meals were always delicious and well balanced in nutrition. The main meat or fish meals, great vegetable choices. She always had a pitcher of ice tea in the summer on the table. We children loved her condiment tray of various raw vegetables. Celery stuffed with peanut butter or cream cheese, carrot sticks pickles and black olives. We all loved those black olives because if we got the chance we would place them on the ends of our fingers eating them off one at a time. Some times she would make her fresh apple cake and that was super scrumptious. I asked Mother to give our readers a copy of my Aunty's cake. She got the recipe years ago from her sister-in-law in West Virginia.

Aunt Gin's Fresh Apple Cake

4 cups diced apples

3 cups sifted flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon

Mix oil ,sugar & eggs. Add to the dry

ingredients. Then add apples and / or.

nuts and raisins if desired.

yes this is a heavy cake -- but so tasty.

and a long keeper

if kept in an airtight container.

Sometimes we four would go outdoors with our Uncle Kenny while our Mother helped Aunty with the dishes and cleaning up the kitchen. Uncle Kenny would give us some money and we would all walk the half mile down to the corner store and buy a soda, candy or an ice cream then walk over to the lake and watch the boats. When it started to get into twilight towards darkness those pesky mosquitoes charged at us and started attacking us so we all high tailed it down the road back to the safety inside the house.

Indoors we would play Scrabble, Monopoly or Checkers and we all were very competitive.

If Star Trek was on the television our cousin Ken Jr would stop playing games and sit in front and watch his show munching on popcorn. We either continued the board games quietly or went over and sat down and also watched Star Trek while munching popcorn.

Summer Fun for Three Sisters part 3

Summer Fun for Three Sisters part 3

March 25 2017

Every time we arrived at the Greyhound bus station Grandma and Grandpa were there to greet us. On the way to their house Grandpa would stop for ice cream. We could have anything we wanted but Grandma always had a berry shake and Mother would have a chocolate shake. we stayed at their house most of the time and part of the time we stayed at our aunt and uncles house that was only nine miles away out in the country. Our cousin Ken was lots of fun out there in the country.

Grandma and Grandpa lived in town and had a little dog called Penny. Our cousins and other kids came over to Grandma and Grandpas house and we had fun playing in the backyard. Sometimes we went to the zoo and the art museum and other various places. Our Mother always enjoyed going to the Egyptian display at the Art Museum because it had always fascinated her when she was a young girl.

We loved the zoo especially the petting zoo within. Being around the small animals was a lot of fun because we were allowed to pet them and give big hugs. The fourth of July was really exciting because we got to go to a stadium where we could sit in the stands and watch the fireworks in a safe place. The only thing we did not like were the mosquitoes because we rarely had them at home in California.

Once when were were in the country at out Aunt and Uncles house our Uncle decided he was going to have the eating area covered in paneling. He told us we could all draw anything we wanted on the walls then it would be covered like a time capsule for someone to see in the future. We just had to sign our names and date the drawings. Who knows those drawings may still be there after a good forty years.

Our Aunt always set a beautiful table right down to the flowered tablecloth. Her meals were always delicious and well balanced in nutrition. The main meat or fish meals, great vegetable choices. She always had a pitcher of ice tea in the summer on the table. We children loved her condiment tray of various raw vegetables. Celery stuffed with peanut butter or cream cheese, carrot sticks pickles and black olives. We all loved those black olives because if we got the chance we would place them on the ends of our fingers eating them off one at a time. Some times she would make her fresh apple cake and that was super scrumptious. I asked Mother to give our readers a copy of my Aunty's cake. She got the recipe years ago from her sister-in-law in West Virginia.

Aunt Gin's Fresh Apple Cake

4 cups diced apples

3 cups sifted flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon

2 cups sugar

1 cup salad oil

2 whole eggs

1⁄2 cup chopped nuts

1⁄2 cup plumped raisins

Directions

Summer Fun for Three Sisters part 2

Another adventure was when one of my big sisters accidentally was locked in the Greyhound bathroom. We were on a newer double decker bus and we had never been on one before. You can see so much more of the countryside up there because no large trucks blocked our view out the windows. My two sisters went up first to see if there were two seats either sis by side or in front of each other and we claimed them as ours. What a difference it was up there. We saw everything in front of us and on either side. The only bad thing was that there was no bathroom up there.

One of my sisters asked Mother if she could go down to the bathroom and she got permission to go. She was not gone very long when a lady came up the stairs telling my Mother that a daughter was locked in the bathroom. What a commotion there was because my sister had gotten locked in the bathroom. The lock was a bit different than ours at home. with the help of Mother calming her down and sister figuring out she would not be in there forever my brave big sister unlocked the door and the whole bus clapped their hands and cheered her on for using a level head.

Another time when this sister was a few years older she saved the day for all of us. We were in New York City with a four hour layover. We actually used the big beautiful ladies room that actually had an attendant standing in there to help us if we needed. Mother had us wash really well and we changed our clothes also. Mother always had a plastic bag tucked in her backpack for our used clothes. That was a magic backpack she carried with all the things she had tucked away for us. We had eaten and cleaned up and we still had a couple of hours waiting for our next bus so we decided to go exploring in New York City. Now let me tell you our Mother generous and loving lady that she is extremely Geographically Challenged. She took notes on the bus station address and remembered the shop windows and also tried to stay in a four block area but of course we veered off looking at the wonders of this big city then somehow we were lost.

Oh dear and oh my was she ever worried about not getting back to the bus terminal. She told us to stop because she was lost and had to think about retracing our steps. My sister that had been locked in that bathroom a few years later to Mother she remembered how to get back to the bus terminal. What a sister with a great memory. She successfully guided us right to the terminal pointing out the buildings and streets we had passed on our walking tour of New York City. Later on this same sister traveled all around the world and never got lost. Her memory is amazing! Mother never worried about us getting lost again when we four were together. Later on when Mother was thirty nine years of age, our father finally gave in to Mother's wishes that she wanted to learn to drive and get a drivers license. Getting the license was easy and so was the test but whenever our Mother ventured out of her safe zone she was forever getting lost. She always had a notebook on the seat with drawings of where she was going

TO

with little landmarks to guide her and on the back of the page was the

RETURN

instructions on the back noting landmarks

Once our Mother even got lost and ended up in the wrong state! She said she knew she was suppose to be in Nevada but got all mixed up in detour instructions and some how ended up in Utah. She knew she was terribly lost in the traffic and that she was tired, hungry and it was turning dark so she just checked into a nice motel, got a nice room and had a great dinner. the next morning someone helped her rewrite her notes and she was back on the road with fresh notes. She took it all in stride saying that you do meet the nicest people when you are out on the road. She always has a camera with her so she does get some awesome pictures of the countryside.

Summer Fun for Three Sisters Part 1

Every summer, after school let out, our Mother took us on an eight week bus ride from San​ ​José California to  Lawrence, Massachusetts and Toledo,Ohio then back home to San​ ​José. We rode the Greyhound buses mostly but sometimes we had to switch over to a bus called Trailways.

My two sisters got out of school first then I got out a week later.

As soon as we were on summer vacation our Mother would ask us to pick out five nice outfits a pair of pajamas, five sets of underwear and five pair of socks with "no holes"! 

 Ha ha that was really for me because one time she took me to the shoe store to buy a new pair of shoes and when the salesperson asked me to take off my shoes to try on the new ones I was wearing a sock that was half gone in the toe area! Mother about had a cow when she saw that!

Mother said we could pick out the clothes but she had to inspect them for stains. loose or missing buttons or tears so she could repair them. Our little suitcases were lightly packed because during our trip we would accumulate more clothes and shoes to bring back to California.

We each had our own backpacks, with name tags, filled with one set of clean clothes, games, cards,books and a small thin blanket. If there was anymore room left we could fill it with anything we wanted as long as we toted the bag. Mother had her medium size suitcase with her five sets of clothes and other essentials also packed. She had a medium size backpack filled with her extra clothes, a small first aide kit and nonperishable foods for us to eat on the first few days of the trip such as washed fruit and vegetables and the old standby peanut butter and crackers. 

Along the bus line the bus driver picked the place we got to stop and eat. Some places were nice but a lot were not the cleanest according to Mother. In those places Mother would allow us to buy from the vending machines anything that was pre-packaged, even what she called junk food. She was not too keen on us drinking soda pops so she would say we could have two cartons of milk each. We liked that especially if it was chocolate.  We three really liked this part of the trip because we rarely got to eat junk food because our Father would have frowned about that even junk cereal. We wore dark pants flowered or plaid shirts and a light red jacket on the bus so we would stay reasonably clean and red jackets so mother could find us easily in case we roamed off in those busy bus stations. 

We had so much fun meeting all kinds of different people from all different backgrounds and ethnic groups, races and religions. Mother  allowed us to talk to anyone because that was how she was raised by her parents. If Father were with us we would have been made to sit up straight and keep quiet as that is how he was raised in a very strict home.  When we got a little too loud Mother would just give us "The Look" and that meant to pipe down or we would be given the talk.

Once the other bus company, Trailways, went on strike and all those people tried to push ahead and steal out seats on our Greyhound bus. We were in the terminal and Mother was worried about us losing our seats and suitcases on the bus. we had stopped for lunch and a little washing up. She told us to go outside so we could get on the bus real quick but when we went out the door there must have been one hundred people trying to negotiate a place on our bus. she told my two oldest sisters to wiggle and squeeze through people to get to the driver and tell him in worried tones that mother was way in back with their little sister with our four tickets and that our suitcases were on the bus. They were brave big sisters and pointed at Mother who had picked me up and the driver made the crowd move and let the Mother through so she could be with her children. Mother showed him our four tickets and we were allowed to enter the bus and reclaim our former seats.

Crios a giant crab

guarding the sea nymphs

in Poseidon's Kingdom

was enormous and strong

Poseidon blessed Crios

with immortality

Typhon  terrorized

Gods of Olympus

sending Poseidon

into great hiding

leaving Crios to protect 

the sea nymphs

All sea nymphs are

Poseidon's daughters

Crios being serious

protected them

never allowing them 

out of sight

Soon the sea nymphs

tiring became restless

thinking there was no 

danger of Typhon

they plotted together

escaping to open sea

Crios could not chase 

he was protecting 

 other sea nymphs

 He enlisted   giant squid

 Vamari. with ill intentions

 he devoured sea nymphs

Vamari returned to Crios

 saying  he could not find sea nymphs

 Crios knew that he was lying 

 attacking  him,  battling   hours

 Crios the crab finally winning

with crippling injuries

 Immortal  he could nor die

forever living in pain

Poseidon saw the bravery 

Reliving Crios of pain

placing into the sky

 as  Constellation Cancer

Lost Papers part 3

Lost Papers part 3

March 21, 2017

Beloved Abigail,

My heart is heavy

I am so far away

Mama and Papa

will care for you

until I soon return

Waves are boisterous

Crashing on the ship

Calm this morn with

Sun splashed water

There is battling now

Wind and high waves

I write you my dearest

Then seal into a jar

Lest we are lost into darkness

Floating her secrets to the sea.

I send you and the little one

Love and embraces

This ship will bring me

Quickly to your arms

Know that I love you.

Your loving Samuel

Bobby was very quiet then asked if it would be possible to find out what happened to Samuel and if he ever returned home.

His father said only if they knew what the name of the ship he was on and the date it was sailing.

“It will be almost impossible because we do not have many clues to work on. You found the chest, Bobby so it will be up to you to decide if you keep it or not.” said his father.

“Well it would be really cool to keep the chest and contents but I am thinking if we put it into a display case everyone will be able to see the contents and the letters and just maybe someday someone will remember they had relatives named Samuel and Abigail then they will sole the mystery of the

lost Letters.” replied Bobby.

All the men applauded Bobby saying:”bravo Bravo Bravo!
