Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

A poem on how my father’s move has been going and a surprise review from Suma Reddy, The Bio-Blogger!

I’ve written several poems about my dad’s challenging move and sent them to him which he’s found respite in thankfully, unlike my book. 🥹😉 I may post the others at some point as well. This is the second of 2 dumpsters. The other one was 3 times the size. It was sad to see how much stuff went into the land fill. There is a huge dilemma with so many places not taking recyclables any more. Truly crushing.

Can’t catch my shadows
of a million dreams,
no matter how much I try.

The bitter pill
tears me apart
at the seams.

Life’s frailties,
shatter me in pieces.
Glass shards pierce
through my skin.

Years of acquiring,
disappear at
at moments notice.

My life belongings,
now live
in a dumpster.

I am more than my belongings
as I squint
through the tears.


I’m forced to leave my home I’ve loved
for all these years.
I planned to die here.

I’ll miss my neighbors and I thought my soul mate.
home is where my heart is and
I know my way around (I’m almost blind).

They say I’ll be better off,
I’ll find my balance and shed the past,
I’m not not certain that’s true,

it surely………
isn’t easy.

Unlike my Dad, Suma and most everyone else I know so far has found my book extremely useful and I’ve gotten 5 Star reviews, thankfully. I’ve been friends with Suma for quite a long while and her infectious love for life and relationships always send messages of encouragement, honesty and hope. She had taken a necessary break for awhile and is now back spreading her love and wonderful poetry and stories through the blogosphere. She is truly a Princess which is my nickname for her since she calls me her Queen.

Snippet of Suma Reddy’s Review on my book, Re-Create & Celebrate

“Recreate and Celebrate” is more than just a book; it is a life-changing experience. Cindy Georgakas has masterfully crafted a guide that empowers, motivates and uplifts readers to unleash their inner potential. Her realistic approach and life coaching skills will inspire individuals from all walks of life to embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery and celebration.In a world that often feels overwhelming, “Recreate & Celebrate” offers a guiding light, reminding us that within our own personal stories lies the power to recreate our lives and celebrate the extraordinary beings we are meant to become. Happy….. Reading! 🥰

To hear her entire review please go here to read the rest.

Thank you so very much Suma for your wonderful review. I’m so very honored by your wonderful review and friendship!❣️❣️❣️

Tomorrow I’m going with Renee to the hospital for her scheduled C-Section and to meet Grand baby number 2. I’ll keep you posted and share her babies arrival on Fun-Fri-Yayyyyy!

Everyone is asking what Bhlat named her baby. I’d like to know as well. It’s week 3 and I hear today is the deadline but I haven’t heard a word so I’m going with Puddin Tane, ask me again and I’ll tell you the same.

“In fact “pudding tame” and variants (pudding/puddin’ [and] tame/tane/tang) are used today with the sense “I won’t tell you my name” (e.g., often as a. ‘handle’ or pen-name on the Internet, = “Anonymous”). The expression was. used in the “X-files” TV program in 1999.

Until Friday, have a great rest of the week.

Stay Safe and Blessed,



Help us out by spreading the word!

Your poor dad. I could really identify with your poem. Getting rid of my parent’s stuff was hard, but now we have two households full of stuff. Yikes. Our poor son when we get to that point!

My mom was genius in that respect. About 20 years before she passed, she started giving things away, including her prized piano. My brother about had a cow, but I reminded him that he didn’t play the piano and even though I did, I could get a different one if I wanted one. The people that got it really needed one for their three children. You couldn’t say you liked anything at Mom’s house, or you might walk away with it! LOL It made our lives so easy at the end.

I have dealt with a hoarding tenant and parent. It is really tough to make choices for those who can’t or won’t make choices. I am sorry that you had to make these choices for your dad. I had to make those choices for my mother. My husband can’t believe how quick I can empty a room. Congrats on the grandbabies.

Heartfelt and heartwrenching Cindy … I know the emotions of leaving your longtime established home … I had to vacate “our” home of 37 years … that’s 11 years ago now, and finding my present little Villa (6 years ago) has been a comfortable result for me

Beautiful poem. It is awful to throw that stuff away. The waste. We have a Vets group that picks up lots of stuff, for which I am thankful. I rarely have to throw good pieces out.

I can relate to today’s poem and how your dad feels, Cindy. It’s never easy to see our belongings disappear over time or all at once. A friend once told me to take a picture of the special items. It isn’t the same but still a good idea. Congrats on another 5-star review for your book. You deserve each one.

It really isn’t easy, after a certain age life becomes incredibly difficult. Your father is very lucky to have a daughter like you who is trying so hard to take the best care of him possible.

I’m not sure what to say?
Your poem is well written, but life is not.
Why are there no places taking recyclables? That seems wrong…sinful.
Congratulations on your book’s success, Cindy!

What a sad poem! I remember how hard it was to go through my father’s belongings and get rid of things (my aunt actually did the work) when he went into a nursing home with Alzheimer’s. We could not leave him at home because my stepmother refused to take care of him, let home health into the house, or encourage him to eat. She was, in fact, trying to kill him off. Although APS was involved, it took a while for a judge to order him into a nursing home for his own safety and care. It was the right decision. My aunt forced my stepmother out of the house and sent her packing. That opened up an APS case against HER. The whole thing was a big mess.

Heartbreaking poem….and one that resonates as we’ve spent the last few months sorting through my brother’s estate, filled with his things and many from my parents as well. Not easy to sort through someone’s life 💞
