strive.

Standard

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.”

lukewarm.

Standard

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. 

clearly written

in two languages.

“when you’re hot, you’re hot; when you’re not, you’re not.”
