I've had a pretty fun week. Work is busy, but not too bad. I've had some great nights out and have been spending time with people I care about. I had some work done on my house this past weekend. Just some minor things...nothing exciting, but I did have the handymen move some furniture around in my living room...fresh look and a whole wall to figure out how to decorate. (Yes, I know...I need to post pics.) Peanut's Spring Break starts Friday afternoon. My mom will be in for a week so I don't have to take off of work. They may even take a road trip to Austin.

Here's a little bit of what's popped into my head in the last week or so.


Helen took off her running shoes.

They were old and heavy and no longer gave her support.

The very thing that was supposed to give her freedom

of flight was weighing her down.

She decided to sit still for a while,

Dangling her bare feet in the thick of it.

It was then that she learned how to move forward...

The places she'd go would be light on her soles.



When putting your "best foot forward" how do you choose? Do you go by which one is prettier or by which one will taste better if you say the wrong thing?



Anna smiled through the rough days and wept when a day brought overwhelming joy.
Most would think she had that backwards…
But Anna always had a good feel for what she needed.
Perhaps this is what made her whistle on the days in-between.



  1. Good for you! I think I know the secret behind your good attitude.


    1. Janieola, I'm not sure I know what you're talking about! :-)

  2. When the lights, go down in the city.... and the sun shines on the bay... oh I want to be there in the city....

    Sorry, having a Journey moment right there. Right now, I'm loving your journey. :)

    1. Juli, I'll have you know I was smiling even before the, um, Journey incident!

  3. All are good poems but my favorite is "Feet." As witty as it is succinct.

    1. Stephen , it was silly how the thought for "Feet" just popped into my head. I had to pull over my car and write it down.

  4. I'm with Stephen. I love the poems but Feet cracked me up! You are brilliant!
