What Happened?

Deep breath....what else can I do? How is it that things seem to turn upside down so quickly? One minute it is this perfectly focused and at peace mentality and the next I am in a deep dark pit. Breathe...the feelings are so intense and real. I think I have to remember that there are still things that are very good in my life. I have to stop and focus on those things. I must grab hold of the good otherwise I will drown.

An Old Friend

Today I had the privilege of getting reacquainted with an old friend. It had been many years since I last heard the rich, low voice of my lovely friend, as my slender fingers gracefully traversed their neck. The flow of conversation came easily as though we had scarcely been apart. Only the dull pain of tender fingers reminded me of how long it had really been. I have fallen in love again. I hope for many more evenings such as this one which are filled with beautifully composed conversations.

Wake Up!

It is such a sad feeling when the festivities are over and the guests go home. The knot in the pit of my stomach reminds me that my check-out from reality is over. The responsibilities of life are now returning and must be dealt with. There is no doubt that everything I left on the table is still there waiting for me to clear it away. It is time to put the child to bed and rouse the adult from slumber.
