My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Poetry and Adventure Day 36

Blog prompt: This month is National Poetry Month. What is your favorite poem? How does it make you feel?

My favorite poem is I’m Nobody by Emily Dickinson. It is one of the first poems I remember liking and relating too during my teenage years. I felt that she knew exactly how I felt and that I was not alone. I still like to think of this when I’m feeling down.

I ’m nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there ’s a pair of us—don’t tell!
They ’d banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!

Travel Notes:

Today we hiked around Capitol Reef National Park. We did some wonderful hikes and the scenery was beautiful. The best hike of today was the Grand Wash Trail where we hiked to the Narrows. The walls were really high and intimidating. The rock formations were outstanding and it really made me think about how long some of them have been here. After hiking the trails, we headed toward Moab and Arches National Park. Unfortunately we didn’t know this weekend is their big car show and it was really hard to find a hotel room. We finally got one for about $100 but tomorrow night they want $200 so we are leaving and heading towards the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in Colorado.
