paramedic

This is a new word–kind of made up but it is important in an emergency. My sister’s ex was a
paramedic on a college campus and he saved teens who drank too much. They were wild with their new freedom and could not pace themselves.

patch

Just a patch of grass in the middle of the concrete city–a secret garden with locks on the gate–nobody comes in or out. But if you see it on just the right day with the right slant of light, you will get a glimpse of Eden.

adapted

So you go to the movies and the film is adapted from a book and most of the time, that means it will be awful but sometimes, it works. Like Prince of Tides was adapted from a book and the
movies was more enjoyable than the book. Or so I thought.

puppies

I miss seeing the puppies at Debbie’s Pet land, though I am glad that we have done away with commercial pet stores. If I went to a shelter, I know I would come home with a dog and/or cat.
Puppies keep us young, active and hopeful.

gingerbread

I would like to build a gingerbread village with stores that I love, filled with books, toys and
colorful clothes. I would like people to move in and our of candy cane doors nd there should be snow everywhere and music and everyone should be happy.

steer

We’re always trying to steer people in one direction or another. Take your children–you think you have answers for them; you try to steer them away from heartache, away from obstacles. And your partner too, you want him to go a certain way. Together you steer toward the stars.

flex

When you dance, you flex your foot. When you show your strength you flex your muscles and when you are after an elusive goal, you flex your mind and your willpower and everything you’ve got. Then you go out and grab that gold ring.

nightlight

We are big fans of the nightlight. It seems a little hokey but it’s comforting to wake up in the middle of the night and see that ray of light. When we have guests, we have two nightlights in play. It’s our way of staving off the darkness.

direct

How does one direct grief–does it become sadness, anger, fury? Or must you let it simmer on the stove of the day and night. Let it boil over if necessary until the day you feel ready to clean it up and cook a new dish. The human spirit is strong. It just takes time.

circus

I remember the first time I went to the circus–maybe the only time. We took the train into the City.
I was wearing a gray suit of some sort and carrying a purse. I was very excited. When we sat at the three rings, I didn’t know where to look first. In my life of three-ringed circuses, I’m still never sure
where to look.

premium

We put a premium on truth–just tell the truth, we say. Be honest. But there are times when we need to keep quiet. When the premium is on discretion, when we need to hold our tongue to save someone else from distress or discomfort.

scared

Some people live their entire lives scared of something or everything. I say, look the devil in the face and take it on. Fight your fear. Get out their. If you don’t, your life will end and you will still be scared. What does that achieve?

emblem

An emblem is a symbol. I would say that my symbol is a hydrangea–purple, fearless and strong until it droops. It’s hard to fathom whether the problem is too much or too little water but thank goodness, I find ways to revive the flower and to revive myself.
