TAPER/TAPIR – for Daily Post

TAPER/TAPIR – for Daily Post

Candles of any type are nice, some of which are called tapers. I have lots of candles of all kinds. Mostly, I forget to ever light them.

The tapir is a funny animal, found in the forests, and jungles of some South American countries. It looks like a pig, with a short trunk, like an elephant, but it is actually related to horses and rhinos.

I remember when I was a kid, I had a series of books, which were like children’s versions of encyclopedias. My parents would buy one every time we went to the grocery store…one of those weekly promotion type things, I suppose. Every week the book would be for different letters. I was always fascinated by the picture of the tapir. 🙂

These days I’m more of a ‘taper’, in that I use lots of tape. Duct tape is my go to fix-it for just about anything. I also use lots of clear type tapes. My way of thinking is if one piece is good, two or more pieces of tape are even better.

Which do you like? The tapers, the tapir, or are you a prolific ‘taper’?

Can you have a stream of consciousness drawing?

I’m going with – yes, you can- because this is what I thought of this morning. I burn incense almost every day. I love the beautiful and mysterious smell, as it infuses the air.

FINAL RESTING PLACE

Standard

FINAL RESTING PLACE

EPITAPHS

The word epitaph comes from the Greek, meaning a short text, phrase, or poem, engraved into the gravestone of a deceased person.

It can be a Biblical scripture, a phrase, a reference to the person’s interests, or just about anything you can imagine. One of the most popular inscriptions is “Rest In Peace”. “In Loving Memory” is another one. They can be somber and serious, or uplifting and humorous.

Lots of people have their’s added, after death, by their loved ones. However, some people write their own, their wishes carried out later. Not all headstones have them…only the person’s name, birth and death date. Others mention how they are related to others in their family, such as father, mother, son, daughter of…

Many times, there are hearts, crosses, flowers, or angels, carved into the granite headstone. Some inscriptions refer to the person’s interests and hobbies, such as “Gone Fishin'” or “Gardening in Heaven”. One famous person’s epitaph is simply, “That’s All Folks”, from Mel Blanc, who voiced many cartoons.

Have you ever tried writing one for yourself? I have, and it’s fun, but a bit weird…and trying to say just the right words, your final words to the world, is not as easy as it would seem to be.

In a way, you’ve probably already had some practice doing this…your Twitter profile statement! It is short, and it says something you want people to know about you. Take a look at yours…what does it say? Would you like these words to be your final communication to the world?

I AM THE GHOST BESIDE YOU

Standard

I AM THE GHOST BESIDE YOU

Why can’t you see me?

I never planned on being a Ghost…a Ghost of myself.

Flitting around you, I beg for attention…validation…

I am me…a Soul in transition…pain…

Why won’t you see me? I am here beside you.

You look right through me…like I’m not real.

It’s so hard…so hard…I want to be heard.

I need to know you still think of me…still love me.

I am transformed…not gone, not forgotten, not dismissed or diminished as

A strange sound, a confusing coincident of you know-not-what.

I don’t mean to scare you. Please feel no fear. I need your warmth…your love.

I ache to be near you.

Am I the cold chill you feel when I reach out to touch you?

Yes, it’s me.

Am I the wisp of mist you think you see, from the corner of your eye?

Yes, it’s me

Am I the moaning sound you think is the wind through the cracks?

Yes, it’s me.

I’m screaming out to you. I have been here all along.

I have not forgotten you. I give you signs…

Give me a sign that you still care…that you recognize that sudden small flash of memory.

Yes, it’s me, recognizing you in that moment.

I had to leave this life, this mortal realm.

It wasn’t my choice, you see. Please believe me…believe in me,

As I am still here with you…as I am.

I live in your heart, in your thoughts…I am still me, loving you, with all my Soul.

Am I the silence, when you sense that you’re being watched…yes, it’s me…I am near.

Yes, it’s me…still loving you with all my Soul…I am me…

I am the Ghost beside you…
