i just love everything
about this 1955 michigan tourism poster
according to the map
it looks like ann arbor

“you live as long as you dance.”

late night croquet
adds a new level of challenge.
next time I’ll be ready
with my night vision goggles.
“the night plays games.”
an early long weekend
a couple of hours drive
and miles away
it’s time to have a
light show/jump on the beds/stay up late
kind of end to the day
tonight we fly.
“it is not the jumps you made in your life,
but mostly the jumps you haven’t made that are the real source of regrets in your life.”

on the edge of the atlantic ocean
such an easy place to ponder and wander
“the mind has no existence by itself;
it is only the glitter of the sun on the surface of the waters.”

a summer evening by the lake in glen arbor, michigan
“after every storm the sun will smile;
for every problem there is a solution,
and the soul’s indefeasible duty is to be of good cheer.”

traveling with the family to nyc
to spend some quality holiday time
maybe it will be
if no one else has the same idea.
“one can’t paint New York as it is, but rather as it is felt.”
playing, creeping, tiptoeing
ghosts in the graveyard
scaring themselves to death
screaming, spooky, squealing, shrieking
so much fun.
“while it’s cool to think ghosts exist, i don’t want to see one.”
