Hide and Seek

Are getting bigger
Than my pockets or
My pockets are getting
Smaller than things.
Aging is playing
Hide and seek.

What a Motivator

Some celebrity tweets:
“It’s a long way to the distant place”,1)
Being liked by 500.000 twitters,
Is one hell of a motivator

1) PS “Kauas on pitkä matka” (It’s a long way to far away/to the distant place) is a Finnish saying which means that someone is telling the self-evident truths (facts) (or truisms). When someone is famous he can say almost anything and gets credit from that, cp. The Emperor’s New Clothes by Hans Christian Andersen

PPS Ha un Affabile Septimana = Have a Pleasant Week ❤

About Yelling Rosa

I am retired. In my spare time I read, write, play the guitar and hike. I have published three verse books in Finnish and recorded my songs. You can listen to them on YouTube. I have translated some of my poems on Yelling Rosa's Weblog. I also like to watch movies. Olen kiinnostunut lukemisesta, kirjoittamisesta, kitaransoitosta ja luonnossa vaeltamisesta. Olen julkaissut kolme runokirjaa ja laulujani on äänitteillä. Voit lukea runojani Yelling Rosan kotisivuilta ja kuunnella laulujani YouTubessa. Olen elokuvafriikki.

    Yes, I suppose we’re either hiding our age, or seeking our age. You might not have seen this one,

    oh yes you can not take everything with you otherwise it will be difficult to continue your way. But this realization itself is already difficult!
