you don"t need to save the crystal for a special day, even water tastes better in a "Fancy Glass"

Old Windows, New Opportunties

Doors and windows close

new ones open
new pathways and new experiences
new people and new opportunities.
But we move on always with a little sadness
for what we left behind.

Holding Court

Crowning the kings and queens of summer.
The heat from the pavement
makes me want to run away to the beach
and hold court with the seashells, the sand and Oh, the waves.
Soon we will sneak away for a few days, and it can't happen soon enough.

On the road

Having wheels is not always enough.
Sometimes the going is slow, the road is winding
and the traffic signs are confusing.
You just gotta keep going.
Assume the best and believe
that when the time is right
somehow you will arrive.

Crystal Clear

Before you can serve people
you have to set the table.
Before you can move forward
you have to take a moment and think.
And prepare,
For what comes next.
But for a few minutes when the table is set
and the guests have not yet come- you can
imagine that the future is as perfect
as a white table cloth and shining silver and
clear clear crystal.

quiet colorlessness

This week I am feeling it all in black and white
Feeling muted and quiet and tired and grey
the color will come back I know but maybe not today
in the meantime- just letting it happen.

Making Sense of Senselessness

Sometimes no matter how much you want to understand why
you cannot make sense of senselessness
It is not like the movies
There is no time machine to go back and change the course
there is no sudden hero to save the day
no epiphany - just a choice in a dark, quiet moment
and then silence as the world keeps moving past

giving in to summer

Jumping into summer.
breathing in the heat. 
immersing myself in sultry days, cool bits of shade
water and frogs and dogs and bits of beauty-
and summer fun.

your home is your castle

This one is not my style. But the sentiment is true.
Your home should be your castle, your keep, your citadel. 
A place that makes you feel safe, happy, at peace.
There should be beauty and love.
And a little luxury too- be it a flower in a vase
a glass of wine with a loved one, a window to the world
or a cozy spot to dream and recharge.
