positive thoughts



  • The light outside, right now at this very minute, is gorgeous.
  • I got a fabulous deal on my new headboard.
  • My cats are cute and fuzzy and will orbit around me when I get home.
  • It’s time to blow this popsicle stand.

negative thoughts



  • The lightpost by the front entrance (see blog of Sept. 30) is once again dead.
  • My pumpkin keeps falling off of my window ledge.
  • The popovers I made this morning didn’t pop over.
  • The ooh-how-clever bedroom lighting idea I nabbed from Ikea will likely not work as planned.

Disillusioned words like bullets bark

As human gods aim for their mark

Made everything from toy guns that spark

To flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark

It’s easy to see without looking too far

That not much

Is really sacred.


While preachers preach of evil fates

Teachers teach that knowledge waits

Can lead to hundred-dollar plates

Goodness hides behind its gates

But even the president of the United States

Sometimes must have

To stand naked.


An’ though the rules of the road have been lodged

It’s only people’s games that you got to dodge

And it’s alright, Ma, I can make it.
