Pondering with a Purpose-Live

Today's prompt is: Live
I don't know about you... but I am really enjoying this double word meaning rhythm we have going here.

I want to live life live.  I want to be in real time, experiencing each moment as it happens.  I want to feel the happiness and the joy as they swell and then break over me.  I want to know the sadness and pain as they surround me like an ocean wave, so I can then feel the release as the hurt ebbs.

Memories are wonderful, but they are just a shadow of the live experience, just as moonlight is a shadow of the sun light.  They lack the intensity of the real thing. 

So for me live is the only way to live.


  1. I love that last sentence, nice play on words.

  2. Great sentiment and I love the opening line!

    Thanks for Pondering with me Marti!

  3. Very cleverly written. That is indeed a quotable quote you came up with there.

  4. Great thoughts - - I think we all need to feel sadness and pain sometimes in order to appreciate happiness and painfree living!

  5. Wonderful! A resounding Amen from my corner! Life is for the living, and it is and always will be a wonderful, amazing thing!
