the possible and the practical is a constant
in my life these last 4 months.
What Can I do? What Must I do? What do I Want to do.
These questions push and pull at eachother
every day. And most nights too.

and then feeling the buzz in a room full
Sometimes it is my own show
and sometimes someone else's
but my pride and enjoyment
are strong just the same.
Last night was fun,
and filled with good people
taking on a huge task
and doing it to perfection.
Including lace curtains, checkered cloths
and perfectly fried fish and chips.
God Save the Queen.

Hot and sunny one day- cold and grey the next
it makes it hard to plan
event to choose an outfit for the day.
Put away the blankets and sweaters or no?
New projects moving in fits and starts.
While we wait for the spring storms to clear
and things to make more sense.
It is all a metaphor, of course.
These days what isn't?

and carrying them from work to home to work again.
Today, thankfully, I have a cheerful helper.
Sorted, stashing, and smiling her way
through my mess!
The smiling is the BEST part!

to find the beauty and the peace.
Sadness today in Boston.
Stressful life anyway.
But still there was Cheshire cat moon
peeking from amid the cherry blossoms last evening.
And remembering simple things
like that can make a difference.

Some flowers and sunshine
on the porch, to lighten the load.
Good small reminders
that roots are long, flowers are to
be stopped and sniffed at.
and that the seasons turn and
things do not remain either as good or as bad
as they might be today.

sticky joy for repairs and sticking together the broken parts.
I need quiet and time and calm moments with
no expectations and no legal tender.
Just a sunny patch of peace and maybe even a little prosperity.
Ending months of stress and disappointment.
But seems like it is not yet to be.
Just need to grab little bits of beauty where I find them
And keep my strength up.
