Ramapo Reservation, NJ

Last night while lying in bed all sorts of incredible thoughts came to my mind
Beautiful words, one right after the other
I begged my mind to remember them
Hoping that when I woke up in the morning they would be there
Waiting patiently for me to write them down
It seems that words, thoughts, and ideas are not as patient as I had hoped
They escaped into the night
Running off leaving me to wonder if they will ever return again

they'll return....when you least expect them and they will feel as familiar as an old friend, yet as fresh as towels straight from the dryer and you will want to grab them and wrap yourself in them.....

Jennifer, I have been there many times, although I have to admit it's usually some seemingly important task that I have to do that pops into my head. Anyway, I have learned that a little pad on my nightstand does the trick!
