A Slice of Life In 50 Words .............Page 10 of 16    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16)
If you've caged a thing that should be free, don't begrudge her flight at first chance- "She's well-treated... protected, fed, never harmed". You fool yourself. The absence of malice isn't kindness. Kindness is active and vibrant, not just a lack of cruelty. Instead of creating prettier cells, kindness opens doors.

(Flocculation is an excellent word- it sounds so d i r t y ! )

i wonder why peer pressure never causes anyone to go to med school or become a saint
or do anything extraodinarily outstanding.. you think people would notice that listening to others about what you should do..never ends with you reaching higher
or rising above your peers at all

often when I write something happens to me..... almost like my mind takes a back seat... letting go allowing the words to flow....not coming from me at all but somewhere else...bypassing my subjectivity....most of the time anyway :)....feels like it comes through my heart and soul actually

still startled awake when you move in sleep, not yet accustomed to sharing a bed. remembering, I curl against you and smile when even in sleep you kiss me, stroke my hair. I rub my face against your smooth skin before I drift away, carrying your scent into my dreams

Poised on the brink of buying propane. Should I wait? Will falling oil prices reflect in savings? What will happen to my mutual funds? Will I pay, in a personal way, for financial sins I was no part of? Oh, America....

Dusk and the highway slithers like a snake on desert sand. Sun baked tires piled high against an old wooden fence. The old man sits and plays a hand of poker with the sun, the wind, and the highway. This old one pump gas station on route 66.

laughing at this lingering look , a scramble of synapses ,
spiders knee jerking around the octogon knowing only they belong
yet nervous in their kneeling to base eight
..if this ever was a place from which Eden can be found
did the map have to include all the wrong turns?

dirty hands

Melodrama majesty asking more than looks that sell,
as the maladroit mastery escapes your grasp
it isnt easy to be harder than the diamond of our dreams
much easier to grab some coal and wait cause
all it takes is time and pressure
(not enough of one, too much of the other)

I see, in post 361, you dropped a piece of toast on the floor. Now I have eaten my share of dirt in my life, and my floors are never that dirty. Thinkin in hungryspect, I would have eaten that toast without a thought....just don't eat any yellow snow!

three little words have subtly changed everything between us, and I'm unsure how I feel about the difference: every gesture sings with hidden meaning, each word holds an obscure texture. what was unfettered and easy is now complex and intricate, different. will we adjust, adapt, thrive?

One day to sleep in, and the phone rings prelight. I burrow under covers, issuing threats and hideous blasphemies, then sense a presence. My loverman bending down to put his face next to mine. Laughing at my rudeness. Finds my foulness funny. Fulfilling a fantasy I never knew I had.

wow, this is fun

and different




so little truly known of loved ones gone forever
time the calm flat ocean beguiling us into a complacency of steadiness
never feeling the wavering, quavering of it hurrying on
the dangerous swift undertow pulling us away from life
i so wish i had not pretended they would live forever

Buy myself a bike, show my grandson. "It is pink and it has flowers. This is a girl's bike." I'm climbing on. "I'm about to see Nana crash her head!" I weave and wobble across yard..."Wow! Nana, you're the only old person I know that can ride a bike!"

He cheated.... is begging forgivness, talking suicide. Baits me with my beloved woods.. on the grass trying to rekindle flames, somehow survive..halfway there I begin to cry wildly..... cool drop of water from a wild huckleberry bush drops straight into my lips. We laugh....come together ..... last time ever.

lamar, town drunk. weaving wildly thru all two streets of our downtown on his tricycle. (donated by the Baptists). mostly he sags against the wall of the This N'That.
Broad freckled face. eyes deeply lined now. He is an abandoned house now, searching for something left behind by mistake

the bells did toll once again as barefoot children with ballooned bellies gather like dessicated poppies in dead gardens. two hundred thousand small hands and feet have died. the bells are silent now, melted down for more bullets, bullets that gave birth to more barefoot children with footprints of death

The fools look upon the world and see only pleasure
The lost look upon the world and see only pain
The wise look upon the world and see their work cut out for them.

If you meet the Buddha, kill him; if you meet your father, kill him; bound by nothing, holding nothing live your life as it is..
Don't get too attached to things

Listen to the sound of the falling leaves
Slipping quietly to the beds below
They fear nothing and make no cry
Why do we resist death so much?
We will just be returning
To where we have been growing toward
And we will find rest at last
Listen to the sound of falling leaves.

Sitting here feeling slightly demoralized and scandalized, but supremely thankful. Tales about people who still date their ex's ("platonically") or constantly talk online ("just-friends") don't always end well. Huzby has believed in me steadfastly even though two of my best friends are male... I must remember to thank him.

miss tillie turned 97 .
with pride, she informs---
always with a kick.
(not mere swipe or punt).
But full buck-and-winger-rockette-high-knee-to-nose kinda agility that sets 17 bracelets (some plastic neon glow in the dark ) around her stick wrist JANGLING.
"I was hot" she adds, winking.


miss tillie at the hospice thrift store, all 87 pounds, four feet 10 inches of her has captured my heart so totally, I am badgering her to adopt me. If she doesn't, i'm gonna adopt her.

A slice of life. We would all have to agree that life is really quite nice. Each day is sweeter that the day before and good people makes living worth living for. Today a child laughed and I knew I heard an angel and a stranger smiled I smiled back and we shared a moment.

The YOUNG AND THE REST OF US starring craggy-faced Victor, left orphaned, now a self made business mogul, married at one time to most of the women in Genoa City, Wis. though the love of his life is the long-suffering Nicky, former stripper, cult member, secret alcoholic who...

Struggles now with a dread disease and can no longer play her grand piano with 'feeling' as Victor in the background sips his brandy. That 'new Billy' hate him, too bland, the previous Billy was edgy and a little crazy sexy...'Austin murder storyline---yawn~Is Kelly REALLY dead? Yikes!
