“When neither is attended,and I think the nightingale if she should sing by day when every goose is cackling-Amelia Bassano aka William Shakespeare… (The merchant of Venice-Act V, Sc.1
I stumbled upon a cup of tea in the mournings light and found her name in the stars amongst the God’s of then when love was written with a pen covered by blood ink -C L Cunningham/ Amelia Bassano
The Summer of 2018
By C L Cunningham
Methodically the summer breeze sets my mindset at ease as I lay in this chair. Legs up and messy pineapple puff I type away with thoughts of you.
I don’t know what you’re doing right now or even if you’re alone. Yet all I want to do is be next to you.
Light touches and a warm embrace. If life is a race into those arms I’m in first place as I reach for your love to pull me towards you.
My dinner date for two as hours turn into weeks and weeks into months as I wait for the universe to bring you to me or me to you.
Some would call me foolish for hoping but hoping is better than dreaming so why shouldn’t I love you at my best?
I’ve seen you search for me even when you didn’t know what you were searching for and still our hearts found one another.
We are beyond magic.
We are infinite and that’s all we’ll ever need.
Newbies, up incoming, indies. All of these words mean that there’s beautiful things to be heard, read, or watched that aren’t getting the press and media they need.
I’m a lover of discovering new and exciting things. From tech to entertainment. I seek out and search for things and people to listen to as they lend their voices to society.
I picked out five creative wonders to share with you all and one bonus film that I’m sure you’ve all hear of by now.

Who doesn’t love suspense and murder? This book has them both. The plot thickens as well as pulls you into an era from the past. Soon to be released check out a preview on his website drchetadamsforum.com
To round up some great entertainment and exciting work. I wouldn’t be a real superhero fan if I didn’t include today’s newly released Black Panther. The anticipation for this movie has been hugely important. The weekend is around the corner and what a great way to relax and enjoy it.

Stories where you are victorious are some of the best told stories around. Through history people have been passing on the triumphs of life’s victories.
Mine had a lot of cursing in it. It was the Sam Jackson version.
Left Arizona for Nebraska Friday afternoon a little after 3pm. Rode through New Mexico like a champ. Then I got stopped by border police. Go figure.
After shaking in my imaginary boots waiting on that hard green bench with my sons. We got the okay to leave. Thank goodness!
We take off and head towards my auntie’s house close to Dallas. Seeing her and the family was great. She gave a us a great surprise and put us up in a nice Fairfield Marriott. After we left there we headed to Dallas.
Let me talk about Dallas’s interstate….whyyyyyyyy!? Why are there so many overpasses? Scary loopy overpasses. After a complete breakdown I refused to drive anymore of them and decided to go the long way around.
It turned out to be a great detour. Oklahoma was packed with my native history. Something we missed out on coming through the first time. I’m super excited I got to check it off my bucket list.
I managed to stay up the full 14 hours and got through the ice. Being a full 5 degrees anything that had any kind of moisture iced right up. Hitting that welcome to Nebraska sign was like seeing a pot of gold. Heavenly.
I’m thankful that we completed the mission. We handled our business. We managed a little turn up and got back safe and sound. Next time I get the big ideal to drive across America…. stop me…. seriously. I pushed pass my limits. I drove in places I didn’t even believe I could. I slept outside gas stations and barely ate. I did it for myself and for my children, but man. The victory wasn’t just ours. When I couldn’t see myself driving another mile. I prayed. When I couldn’t see myself staying awake. I prayed. When I was so stressed out that I couldn’t think straight. I prayed. The victory isn’t mine alone and I’m loving that. I really do have a universal comforter in my times of need.
It’s Monday! Take time to celebrate your victories big and small. We only have one life to live so live it and enjoy every second while you can.

Happy Monday everyone! Enjoy it. ❄️

The drive here was mentally hard. Yet rewarding. I’m loving my stints with family and friends. It really is great to see everyone.
Much needed time to catch up.
When I get back to Nebraska I’m going to be happy that I made the decision to come. Right now I’m just preparing my for this new day to drive.
It’s Friday everyone and I hope you all have plans to enjoy some of it. It’s too good to go to waste so if you can get in some fun doing the things you love with as many limited restrictions as you can.
You only have one life and the time clocks don’t stop for plans. Hopefully you’ll get to spend it enjoying life in the moment.
Sending you peace and blessings
Happy Friday y’all

Life gives up and downs. From the moment breath enters a body the story begins. All reality starts and the things that are being taught become fact over fiction.
I was brought up hard.
Moved from the inner city of Kansas City Missouri to the stomping grounds of Omaha. I made my journey into adulthood.
Well rounded in religious beliefs. Sidetracked by hard knocks. Family struggles and the building blocks of life with strife as a banner.
It challenged me to become more.
I love that my life took me to low places. Deep dark spaces. If it wasn’t for those experiences I would not acknowledge the light that I see. I wouldn’t be able to fully appreciate those who have helped me along the way.
I love the way life picks out how things go. Then gives me the tools to decide for myself parts of the path that I want to take.
My attitude of gratitude has not come easy. I’m grateful that I have found it. I hope that I will forever keep it.
Day 24 of grateful January. The question is what challenge are you grateful for? I love to hear your stories about life and your insight into the world. Feel free to leave a comment.
Sending you peace and blessings 🙏🏼
