on new year’s eve
i was reminded
is at least half full
and often at the brim.
“life’s enchanted cup sparkles near the brim.”
to say that the detroit lions
have not played like a top tier team in a long time
is an understatement.
I found this display
in the middle of a big box hardware store
with no explanation
and loved the artistic statement it made.
this still somewhat hopeful
and ever loyal fan
has been waiting quite a long time for a win.
that is strong and that is funny.
“i’m a hopeful cynic.”
when i sent in yet another dollar
for yet another mail-in adventure
i was very excited and waiting to play
with my 100 international dolls
expecting them to look like the dolls below
all in fancy and exotic dress
and ready for me to proudly display
when they arrived
they were tiny, pink plastic, flat dolls without any outfits at all
and actually looked like the ones in the comic book ad
not sure why i had such big visions about them
but even then
that was how
i made my way through the world
always hopeful, expecting good things, and full of possibility.
“for me, a life without expectation results in a life with inspiration.”
