grandies m and f

recently took part

in a super mario kart gaming competition

at our local library.

they were moved on and matched

based on wins.

above, is  a picture of f (wearing blue)

in the finals

holding his own

along with his competitors.

one of these guys is not like the others.

“move fast. speed is one of your main advantages over large competitors.”

passing the time.


the old one

takes his time

relaxes and fishes

the young ones row fast

all in a crew

the middle one


from a motor boat

tells them how and what to do.

“old age is ready to undertake tasks

that youth shirked because they would take too long.”

why yes, i’m happy to wait here all day while you check my i.d.

i’ll just stand right by this alert and tan in the glow of its light.

take all the time you need. i’ll hang out for a few minutes longer.

thanks so much for sending help.

does anyone else have this message on their screen?


you i.d. everyone?

great policy.

“i have reached an age when, if someone tells me to wear socks, i don’t have to.”

-albert einstein 

string of lights.


“today is the last day i will ever be 3.” 

“tomorrow when you wake up you will be 4.”

“that is magic.”

“yes, that is magic.”

(conversation i had in my classroom today)

“it’s alright, just wait and see, your string of lights is still bright to me.

who you are is not where you’ve been. you’re still an innocent. it’s okay…. ”
