Welcome to my blog!

This is my blog, Just Chipper. You would think it's going to be chalk-full of pictures and stories about the love of my life, my Lhasa Apso, Chipper. Oh, it will, mind you. But, dig deeper, and you'll discover all that makes me smile, and cry, and laugh, and sigh, because this blog is reintroducing creativity into my life. Something I once treasured, but somehow lost. I lost my dad to cancer in May 2007. Somehow, that's when I lost my creativity. I still think about him every single day. Well, minute really. My dad lived life to its fullest. He was "Just Chipper" when asked how he was doing. This blog is my tribute to him and the family that I love and hold dearest to my heart.

The Timeline of Letting Go...

This poem of mine makes me laugh for some reason...  It was written many, many moons ago, when I was trying to "get over someone."  Funny how time allows you to do just that...

The Time Line of Letting Go...

Unto You this day shall appear,
A great new friendship and loved one to fear.
He’ll tell you he loves you and make your heart flutter,
Then turn to you ‘morrow--throw your heart in the gutter.

With rosy cheeks and a grin that knows no next,
You swear this man must be written out of some text.
But texts are turned pages of history that never seem to appear,
And making this man one of those pages is the most important decision of your year.

After one month, you’ll yearn for more candy.
The tempting sugar of his still makes you randy.
Then two months will pass and things may seem odd--
You’re beginning to forget his face and he seems to be a fraud.

Nearly six months will fly and your heart will be peaced,
For that nobody you loved is now figuratively deceased.
Love the ones you love--no doubt it’s going to happen.
But, above all, love the YOU that loves,
And discover you’ll always be a’laughin!
