Poetry and musings of a zany Mormon girl who is very proud of her Erda roots.

Have you ever felt a mass of pint-up energy concentrate in the pit of your stomach giving you wings to try new things without inhibition or thought for consequences?

Have you ever acted on it?

I want to.

But I'm not sure where to begin!

The possiblities are endless.

Although most are benign, some could be considered quite reckless.


Let's face it: I'm far to cautious to be reckless.

I'd like to be.

But there are some things a person simple can't be.

For me, it's the act of living totally in one moment.

I can't do it.

I'll always look at things from multiple angles; examining the facets and searching for flaws in the plan.

I can't be reckless.

No matter how much I wish I could.


  1. Disagree, do it.

    I once asked a friend what she was doing for a summer. When she said, "Working for my parents," I flippantly asked if I could too. She said yes, so I gave it a go. Turned out to be a great summer with great new friends and experiences.

  2. I'm the same way, and I've done "reckless" things twice - just doing it despite possible consequences - and I always regretted the outcome. The only reckless thing you should do is one that will PROBABLY have good consequences. =P But then, it's not quite reckless, is it?
