very little.

Standard

after a fun afternoon 

and wonderful evening

spent visiting and playing

grandies are tired and tucked in

when suddenly the tears come

missing mom and dad

and after

a story, Kleenex, hugs, a visit from the cat, and a goodnight call to mom

everyone settles in for the night

including bunny

 does it get any better than that?

“very little is needed to make a happy life.”

the tipping point.

Standard

saw this in the early morning when walking downtown 

I wonder about the story behind how it got there

was it a server at his/her limit

 finally reaching the tipping point

throwing down the apron 

tying them down

abandoning ship

hoping for

something better/different/new out there?

‘a single act of courage is often the tipping point for extraordinary change.’

team spirit.

Standard

first game of the year

and lots of excitement buzzing around town

most everyone embraces it

even the new arrivals on campus

on sorority/frat row

and the car wash

that stays open and works

while also hosting tailgaters

complete with

buses, games, food, and mini bar

now that’s team spirit.

butter.

Standard

(not me, but a tiny brit/ fellow lover of butter,

who began by trying to make pancakes with his brother,

before it all went happily off the rails

and he ended up

covered in butter with a butter shampoo.)

when in maine….

apparently the warm, melted butter

was waiting to ambush me

it went perfectly 

with everything I ate

due to my obvious positive response

and unapologetic joy

they just kept serving me

things that could go with it

(everything)

and at one point

(I didn’t even notice)

the protective bib I was wearing 

somehow fell off and was under the table

and I found myself 

quite literally covered in melted butter

from the tips of my fingers

to just above my elbows

with collateral damage all around

and it was magnificent. 

 

It took me years to figure out that you don’t fall into a tub of butter, you jump for it.
