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

Seems like just yesterday

I'm amazed that some things seem like they both
were just yesterday and
also seem to be ages ago.
Time is not so fixed and concrete
as it seems that it should be.
the last 16 years
in a heartbeat.

Soaking in Some Sun

Important to stop and notice
that the sun is shining
and it warms up our bones
our ideas
our dreams.
Winter doesn't last forever.
And I notice that the sun feels warmer
when it is cold outside.

Please, be mine.

Oh, dear life,
Please be my valentine.
Let's kiss and make up.
Enough of this sadness and fighting.
Instead we can have big, sweet, sticky
times together again.

It's All Relative

There are tough jobs
and trying days
and stress.
But then there is what this guy
has to deal with everyday.
Important to
keep perspective.

Wishing it were so...

Wishing that all the parts
of my work
could be as fun as planning
cool stuff with
other people.

What I need now are the cleanest
most simple solutions.
With little drama, and even less
Just like a cold clear
winter day.

Plans and Lists and more Plans

Lists and plans
going in many directions
planning and fixing and doing and changing
and mostly
working and hoping.
New direction needed.

Exercising Demons

My Demons. 
The repeat factor of dealing with the same stresses
over and over again.
The same things I am not good at.
Keep coming back to bite me in the butt.
Time to break the chain.

It is all a matter of
hurly burly swirly vertigo-inspiring
Walking a tightrope wire of
choices and ideas.
What comes first?
What comes last? 
And where do all the in between roads go?

January was a month of rough
and craggy edges. Bumps and ugly wounds
But learning - Oh! the learning.
