river of stones - day 21

sketch by Yuri Ozaki
background effects done in BeFunky

today I ordered
a replacement bulb
for my full-spectrum lamp
now I just sit
in dark depression
waiting for the light

river of stones - day 15

there are days
when I stay in my pj's
all day
eating cold pizza for breakfast
and blueberry pancakes for dinner
I might read an entire book
without feeling guilty
as I stuff a wad of shut-the-hell-up
into the mouth of the little voice
inside my head that tells me
I am wasting time

river of stones - day 9

Alabama morning...
I awaken to six inches 
of fresh snow!
The kid in me begs relentlessly
to go out and play
and  finally, with a giggle,
I give in.

In Stitches

I asked the Dr. to not "keep me in stitches."
He laughed and asked how old I was.
"Fifty," I said, "Why?"
"Cuz only someone our age or older
would understand that expression."
I didn't know whether to laugh in return,
or kick him with my good foot.

my "bad" foot all blinged up for the holidays!

river of stones - day 4

bleary-eyed barista
off to work . . . wondering
do squirrels drink espresso?
