morning yoga at the farmers’ market.
what I passed as I drove by
on my way to get bagels.
it’s all about balance.
some days it’s yoga and organic veggies
in the morning light.
other days it’s drinking a latte
and eating a chocolate chip bagel
with whipped cream cheese
while wearing the yoga pants you woke up in.
“extremes are easy. strive for balance.”
our first snowflakes fall
and from the looks on their faces
i’d say the fall pumpkins
are having a hard time
accepting the arrival of the winter weather
and wish it would all just go away.
“ignoring facts does not make them go away. “
how excited was i
when i discovered
that my local mcdonald’s
chose to give me this special cup?!
what a statement this was
what a compliment
they must have been waiting
for just the right customer to come along
this lid was like a badge of honor
clearly written in two languages
for all the world to see
i carried it with pride
as i went to add my cream
and it was then
that i noticed
that it had come from
a huge sleeve of coffee cup lids
all carrying the exact same message.
in two languages.
“when you’re hot, you’re hot; when you’re not, you’re not.”
character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow.
the shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
