what i am and not

i am not some character in a grandiose play.

i am not some object to be molded out of a lifeless piece of clay.

i am no one’s obligation

or

a servant on a leash.

I am myself to be.

~ SO ~

you can respect me

or

you can leave me ~

either way,

i am

who

i am meant to be.

in memory of my mom,
who never could

same two words….

¿

every year

i ask the same two questions,

and

every year

the answers never change.

for the first i ask

“How was your day”

and

with one word

the answer is…….

“BORING”

¿

the next one is simple –

“So, what did you do”

and

i would expect a little more explanation

BUT

he never strays from his usual response

and

with a tired sigh

he says……

“NOTHING”

¿

SO,

you can imagine my surprise,

on the first day of school

when my typical inquiries were made ~

a total of five words

popped out of his mouth ~

i was stunned,

i was shocked,

i was amazed!

¿

i just about back ended the car in front,

and

thought I was going to faint ~

when the words

“NOT BAD”

&

“SOME INTERESTING STUFF”

spilled from his mouth,

via

his 16 (almost 17) year old brain!

 ¿

i have nothing more to add to this piece

because i am still in a state of shock,

so

i will say

THANK YOU for reading,

i must get back to work now

i am being bad ~

why

because

i am still on the clock!!!

so much time is spent looking

looking around

looking around for something

looking for someone

looking for someone to be

looking for love

looking for someone to love

~

BUT

~

never enough time is spent

 ~ simply ~

looking at life

~ simply ~

looking at living

~ simply~

looking at living life

~ simply ~

looking at living

and

loving

life

a factoid quote – by Jordan

“The real reason the United States is referred to as a melting pot

is because

it has more active cultures than a cup of yogurt.”

Words from my son, who is now heading back to school to begin his sophomore year in college.  I said “I will see you soon” and hugged (squeezed) him very hard and left a few (okay, actually, many) tears on his shoulder.  I know he is doing what he must and doing the grow up thing but I am still a mom who misses her Pnut and a very leaky faucet.  Does any one have a number for a good plumber?   🙂

our last trip to pick up Jordy from work…waiting…

lamentations

:

:

i know he has to go

but

knowing does not make it any less painful.

:

:

it is not a ‘forever‘ goodbye,

it is a ‘i’ll see ya later‘ goodbye.

however,

inside

it is a ‘i will miss you so, so, so very much‘ goodbye

and

i cannot wait for you to come back home‘ goodbye

the drive

º ∼ º

the wheels of youth

roll slowly

or

so they seem

to those who are young

but

somewhere

between

what was

and

now is


the wheels have become

fleeting

inspired by driving ∼ my two boys ∼ everywhere ∼
