The Art of Keeping It Short
I guess my last entry was too obscure for some of my readers. That's okay; I like it that way now and then.
Yesterday I think I was on my feet something like seven straight hours. Okay, so maybe it was closer to five. All I know is, it felt like twenty-four or more, if you go by today's level of OUCH in my legs.
There's a weekend art festival in one of the parks in town. We went there, saw some really nice work and some that was so awful we wondered how these people could justify their presence in an arts festival at all.
Next week is a gem and mineral show, which we fully intend to see. I try to
drag get MC out of the house every weekend because he's mostly working at home these days. He said he gets a bad case of four-wall-itis before the week's over, and by the weekend *I* am in need of a serious dose of escape from work, too. So we invariably drive into town Saturdays and do the rounds of bookstores, yard sales, whatever catches our interest. And the library - that's a permanent fixture in the weekend itinerary. MC can't go into town without hitting the library bookstore. (Thank you, gwtw!)
This is going to be another short entry; for one thing, I've got to get going on brunch and laundry - for another, MC has been waiting patiently for his turn with the Internet. I am still hoping sooner or later he'll post here but I've stopped holding my breath!
Before - After
In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
