my candle quietly answers the question.
“what dreadful hot weather we have!
it keeps me in a continual state of inelegance.”

that we’re highly likely
to re-gift to someone else at a later date
no reason to keep the joy of giving all to ourselves.
‘christmas makes me happy no matter what time of year it comes around.”

came upon this peaceful man
sleepy with quiet thoughts
on a quiet noon
spent in bandamer park
ann arbor, mi. usa
“summer quiet thoughts on summer quiet noons.”
-ray bradbury, now and forever
only a matter of time…..
“patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.”
