like a trophy
atop a pedestal
sits one tiny shoe.
“let your dreams outgrow the shoes of your expectations.”
we’ve all had those days.
‘when everything gets turned upside down,
it only leads to better quality stuff.’
“finish each day and be done with it.
you have done what you could.
some blunders and absurdities
no doubt crept in;
forget these as soon as you can.
tomorrow is a new day.
you shall begin it serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be encumbered
with your old nonsense”

july full moon – ann arbor summer
another unexpected mishap
while singing and dancing in my house
while playing extreme family badminton
after lots and lots of walking and hiking
running on the ice with the kinders
limping to the doctor for a boot
it’s only a matter of time
and i’m sure that
a new happy and healthy activity
to challenge me
but i’m going to
keep the boot this time.
“my optimism wears heavy boots and is loud.”
