standing by what could be the longest word in the universe.
‘this universe can very well be expressed in words and syllables
which are not those of one’s mother tongue.’
-tahar ben jelloun
one great climb and just the beginning
“after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.”
while working hard to gather rocks for the garden
we look up to see the buzzards patiently waiting
the pressure is on
as we pick up the pace
just who/what are they waiting for?
“winning comes down to who can execute under pressure.”
-billie jean king
feeding the worms and roll-poly’s
everyone’s got to eat
all meals are free and served with love
“food is our common ground.”
after a breakfast with the grandies
sandwiches, coleslaw, hash browns, pancakes, and juice
talk turned to our worst juices
‘mine is hot dog juice, i tried it.’
yes, you win.
“what is all this juice and all this joy?”
-gerard manley hopkins
a neighbor’s lovely collection
“always have something beautiful in sight, even if it’s just a daisy in a jelly glass.”
