maestro? not today. Just a humble grandma waiting for the next time we get to be with our grandson. Priorities sure can shift.

entitled – skip this. Its what’s left when you’ve already been shortchanged and you’ve been taught that this is what you then get. Compare that to self accomplishment which we would much rather have. Ironic that when there is not enough money our society creates situations of entitlement, but its often for things that look shiny on the outside, but are cheap on the inside.

writing like prophets
soapbox standing in my mind
who am I kidding?

sill: our window sills are crammed with stuff, a young boy’s dream for bounty. He looks over to us first then dashes over to explore as much as he can before we can catch him.

wait, can I do this one over? That “your money or your life” book (now a financial integrity and free website) has a phrase about revenue that has stuck in my head:
Am I making a liviing or a dying?
Maybe I need a re-venue.

re-venue is more like what I’d like to write about. A fresh place, a fresh view for what I’m working on these days.
Just don’t want to trade my old problems for new ones.

celebrity shouldn’t only be for famous people because shouldn’t it be for a person we celebrate?
I celebrate you.

backlit fort coverings bring joy to the little monkey that is my grandson. Things you do with grandchildren you can’t with your own children are just beginning.

Everyday trying to solve the problem as if running against a brick wall when all I need to do is dissolve the negativity and worry inside and jump in and play and laugh and enjoy what we have.

husband where are you
working nights while I work days
ships and merrygorounds don’t cut it
but the love post-its sure do help.
I miss you.

promise is not always
yet we tend to think that it will be so
pressure or safety?

When will the world realize that the arts is not a genre, subject or category, it is a way of living. And a darn better way of living at that.

living life is not about being entertained.
charge forth and be in the real moment.

before I thought this was going to be easy. now i know that the tasks may be easier, but i choose to make them harder, i don’t know why. looking back, i liked being in before more than now. hmmmm.

I want to just pound out on these keys the toughness of today – it seemed like all the students wanted to flex their behavior to see if the rules still applied. They do, even with all the compassion we feel for them and the difficulties they have had to overcome just to walk in our door.

stillness is something I’m really looking forward to feeling again. Things have felt so chaotic inside, that I’m not moving fast enough, even though I am probably moving too fast.

Stillness needs internal connection. Its hard to quiet it all down.

refuse to slide into autopilot

more time
less distractions
more of his interruptions
less worrying
more chocolate.

First we seek approval, then we hope it doesn’t matter, then we hope we don’t get approval. Or reverse this for men.

texts: So I have 60 seconds to write about texts. It makes me wish I had a better sense of being able to write meaningfully. The only way to do that is to do this!
