|If the vertigo comes to a stop you're lucky. Illusions can be very
powerful. Sometimes the hardest thing in life to do is hold on to your dreams. Interesting write.

|This is so excellent, Linda! How we can relate to that dizzy spin in life - or out of life! - for varying reasons. With me, I feel like it most of the time, actually... I feel like a wander about on a different plane, and my objective reality and mood and how I relate to life around me very much depends on what I'm thinking about and meditating and trying to get my brain round at the time... my thoughts are usually struggling about inspirational matters and sifting thoughts about understanding - rather than concentrating on what I'm going to put on the table for supper!! As you might therefore guess, I am a terminally hopeless timekeeper... which might also account for my "dizzy spin"!! I enjoy your spacey style here and your seriously pared back format. You say much with few carefully chosen words and images. Ver well done! TY Kate xx|

|I have no choice
but to ride the vertigo
until it comes to a stop
I fear that we must all do that periodically, Linda - and continue to hope for safe landings.

|i certainly sympathize with this poem ... at times, the past and the future can distract us from The Now and set us into us spin until we balance our "unrealized dreams" ...
many excellent lines ... i especially like:

|Lately my emotions
have been on a roller-coaster ride
My nervous system
is in a state of quiet mutiny
Man, do I understand this... there's always a little bit of sanity in the most insane places, with the presence of dreams and illusions, life is bearable... there's still hope... this is a write, I can relate to... well done

|To kiss the sky and still to soar
Takes us to another shore
Where we embrace Life to its core
And sail beyond the open door.
Love & Light,

|Well, there are these tricky moments of dizziness in life, when we don't know if we are actually standing, tumbling head-over-heels, or upside down... lol! But then, the dizziness stops... and it's good to feel that our dreams haven't shot through the roof of sky out of sight... ;0)... but have been planted within a fertile nest from where they can take wings and soar! Hang on tight, Linda... and dream on!

O, I love this--I know the feeling well! LOL
I staggerfeet my way through life LOL
An excellent write--a bit of sanity through the madness--enjoyed!
Is that the "Roundup"? I used to ride that thing like crazy, back in my younger days--long past, I'm afraid...don't do spinny rides any more!
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. :)

|Linda dear, I have been there many times over. Now I have my feet planted firmly on solid ground, and I look only to the past now, to recall the wonderful times I had. I have been on the ferris wheel, looking over everyone else, I have been on the roller coaster of life, going so fast, I didn't have time to stop for anything, much less myself. I have been on the Tilt-A-Whirl, my thoughts just so dizzy, that I coudn't see what was next. I have been there, and I do not want to go there again. Thnx for sharing dear, this is very good. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & (((((((((MANY SISTERLY HUGGGSSS)))))))))), Barbie
