Measure

For Winnie

 

If you bite off more than you can chew, sometimes if you shake the daylights out of it you can break it into smaller pieces.

(You may use alternate methods)

Or you can just keep chewing at it until you reach your goal.

Know when to just leave it on the lawn.

Push

Waiting

 

Don’t be afraid to demonstrate 

Impatience

If the world is not moving 

Fast enough.

Sometimes it needs a 

Push.

Be resolute, firm, fair,

Generous, and gentle.

Successor

“Not-You”

Today she came into the kitchen from the outside.

She nudged that door open with her nose, poked her face in, fixed her eyes on me and walked in, tail gently swaying side-to-side, just as you would have.

Like seeing my granddaughter, whose face evokes the thought of my own sweet child, her name filling my mind and heart. Unable to pass this point, unable to get daughter’s name from my head, in desperation, I must call her “Not-Kerry.”.

I rise and close the door.

It was “Not-You.”.

Ignorance

Road to The Wonder Woods

Just because you 

Don’t Know

You are 

Beautiful,

Perfect,

And Precious to this

Great Cosmos

Doesn’t mean

It isn’t So.

Watchful

Patience a Virtue

Don’t turn your 

Back on a 

Possum just because

You think

It’s dead.

Pressure

Spring on Thursday Trail

 

Life can be a pressure cooker

(for humans).

Be The Vent.
