Is it being unrealistic, impracticable, quixotic, fanciful, unworkable and idealistic?
Or, could it possibly be far-sighted, imaginative, creative, prophetic, prescient or original?
I lean towards the imaginative side of things.
Being original, creative, artistic and resourceful are things that excite me.
A lot of people think of me as an inspirational person, full of life and ingenious.
I agree with that, but add being effective and active is what I am all about too.
After-all, isn’t writing a form of expressing yourself as well as talking?

A Late Walk
When I go up through the mowing field, The headless aftermath, Smooth-laid like thatch with the heavy dew, Half closes the garden path. And when I come to the garden ground, The whir of sober birds Up from the tangle of withered weeds Is sadder than any words A tree beside the wall stands bare, But a leaf that lingered brown, Disturbed, I doubt not, by my thought, Comes softly rattling down. I end not far from my going forth By picking the faded blue Of the last remaining aster flower To carry again to you.
