I’ve always loved palm Sunday….
first day of spring
a little worse for wear but we seem to have weathered through winter
how you feel today
I feel much like I have been spinning wheels.
This has been the most difficult month I have ever had to deal with
I hope and pray I never have to face anything like this again
As if often the case, along with immeasurable loss
has come a new beginning for me…
and I am looking forward with much excitement
this is from a few years ago
the boys had static electricity from going down the slide
So Joe was giving them a bit of a shock by touching their noses.
You can really see Jack’s hair sticking up
This is my father and I -probably around 1978 or 79.
My cousin posted it on a facebook page, which was awesome
because I had never seen it before.
He died in 1981 when I was just 18 years old
so it’s really sweet to have this picture of us together
I have been doing my first week of training in Watertown.
It’s only about 20 miles but it takes about an hour to get there in traffic.
I have to either through or around Boston…
The view from the roof of the parking structure is beautiful.
I park up there even though I am there early enough to park on the ground floor.
Today I am at the center where I will be working!
I am so happy to be able to take the T and not have to drive!
It’s been rainy and grey most of the week but the temps. have been warm.
The daffodils are pushing up near the back steps..
little green shoots of hope
I am loving the time change. It’s so nice to have it still be light in the evenings.
Every morning I see the school bus pull into the lowlands parking lot at 7:15. It waits there for 5 or 10 minutes and then starts picking up the island teenagers and bringing them into school on the mainland. Back when I was young enough to be getting on that bus I couldn’t imagine any kind of pleasure in looking at the same thing every morning for the rest of my life. Now I love to see that yellow bus. I love to see the seasons change around it…the field behind it green and yellow and brown and back to green again..filled with geese or seagulls or misty fog or snow. All is right with the world again this day. Our own individual worlds may have been blown apart during the night but the world around us is still rocking just the way it should be and when we are ready…we can step back in.
All that dancing in the moonlight couldn’t make you stay
I laid my longing at your feet and there it sits
you laid all the others and I just stood there while you made your play
Falling on my knees I gathered up my tattered wits
And though I tried to stuff them all inside my heart, it seems my heart no longer fits
Was this a game to you? A comedy?
I tell you no and in she flits.
Turn away, it is not tragedy
to me -I can look you in the eye
and tell you that it doesn’t smart
enough to make me cry
or break my heart
or hear me moan
or watch our love turn into stone
Our challenge for today is to use the following fourteen words in the order presented: stay, sits, play, wits, fits, comedy, flits, tragedy, eye, smart, cry, heart, moan, stone. These words were borrowed from a sonnet by Edmund Spenser.
