My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

(Almost)Wordless Wednesday



“Assume nothing. Always wait to hear/read the facts.”


PS: This one is a “biggie” for me. Over the years, I have learned this “the hard way” . By nature, I am an impulsive person; trying to curb this instinct a bit. Also, making a real effort to keep in mind this gem of wisdom.

  1. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here.

    ‘Assume nothing’ is a difficult one. I tend to jump to conclusions (often to my detriment)and often end up in hot water. Then there is the other side of the coin, where I tell myself it is prudent to wait, when in fact, it would have been better to have acted immediately. I think every situation must be assessed individually.

    Like Jason, I also love ‘Nights In White Satin.’

  2. That is a tough one. I’ve had to bring that instinct to heel, too. So dangerous! Boy, have I put my foot in it over the years. I have learned silence really is golden and those unsent letters are good keepers of secretes!

  3. This is so true.

  4. Oh my yes! This is so very true and such an excellent reminder!! Thanks G 🙂

  5. Hi Jason, Me too!

    Hi Selma, I love this theme, glad I found it. Especially nice with the snow. 😉 I hear ya, re: jumping to conclusions. The story of my life up until a few years ago….I am trying to learn to slow down a bit and ‘get the facts’ before I make any decisions in haste.

    Hi Sandy, I’ve sent a few letters that I shouldn’t have, in retrospect. But live and learn that’s the main thing, right?

    Hi Joe, I certainly agree.

    Hi Kayt, Glad this helps.

    Thanks for stopping by, your visits and comments are most appreciated,G

  6. Oh … I love how festive it looks here! One of the fun things about WordPress is how quickly one can change themes. I love the message … and I’ve written MANY such letters over the years. Fortunately I’m not impulsive about such things.
    Hugs and blessings,

  7. I’m still learning this but instead of letters it’s my mouth. 😉 XXOO
