do you always need to be a 10?
ease up ....
do well
do your best
it's good enough

declaring independence

what do you need freedom from?
write your own declaration of independence
have your own celebration
bombs may be bursting in air
but you are still there
form a more perfect union ...
of thought, mind, spirit
happy independence day!

eveyone needs a vacation
from work, routine
thoughts, problems
take a vacation
a new location
a new perspective

hugs are good

when we're glad
when we're sad

comfort, encourage
share, communicate

why not give one today

shared vision

if we each used one eye
to see what the other sees

and kept one eye for ourselves
to see what we see

now that sounds like a plan

trust fall

a trust fall
falling backwards
hands posed to catch you

what about the person who falls
and there is no one there

two are better than one

being and having a trusted friend

the book you thought you should write

what would be your subject?

someone else
a fictionalized you

write it fast?
get it out and over with?

a relief?

social networking

with people you can't see
but know from many places
before and now ...
make new friends but keep the old ...
wish you could be with them
but you can see their faces
a different kind of talking ...
it's all good
friends in person...friends online

... into every life a little snow must fall!


bright, white, clean covering layer
beautiful to look at, admire

challenging, potentially dangerous
needing to be removed

2 sides to every coin

which side do you see today?

just asking .... Carol
