roll over

Sometimes what i WANT to do is roll over and play dead
but when i resist the urge, more often than not,
good things happen.
Yes, we are too busy,
and yes we are not perfect,
and yes we can do better BUT
we still kick ass- and we are getting it done.
Just maybe not the way we imagined.
Upside down is also ok.

big city / big lists

I'm home again. Back to the big city.
Big plans, and a godizilla sized work load.
My to do list could wrap around Tokyo.
(Perhaps more than once.)
And Fall is here.
Busy busy time of year.
Nose - meet - grindstone.

Autumn colored kitties,
and backyard breaks
cleaning and clearing
endings and beginnings
uptime and downtime
plans and schemes
cool mornings
sunny afternoons
and restful nights
much work 
we are getting it done.

-good starts.

down home

I had a taste of the south, it was inspiring, energizing
and tiring all at once.
Now I am ready to roll up my sleeves
and dive into it.
Searching, freeing, cleaning,
packing and prepping.
Writing, pushing, reading
and voting.
In a glorious mixed up mess,

not so footloose and fancy free

Leaving home is hard, being away is hard.
I love to travel- but I hate when things go wrong while I am away.
Flooding, injury, missed opportunity.
It makes it difficult.
Hope it all stays together for another 12 days.

A Wee Bit Weary

After such a long hot summer
we could all use a little rest.
Alas it is not time yet- still more to do.
as they say here in Japan,
"issho ni gambarimasho"
