Day 1

Running light footed Wind pushing me forward Breathing is a breeze. Clouds beneath my feet Bright and sunny skies above Music in my ears. Half a mile in My heart is beating faster My feet feel heavy. Yes! Stop sign ahead Run or walk…tough decision Run, you can do it. Focus on breathing Looking ahead…

A note from my kid

The other day I opened a red envelope that I pulled from my kid’s backpack. Inside was a letter that gave me a chuckle. Dear dad, I love you butt I do not like yur berd. I love Mom the most. Your friend, {unsigned}

Jolt, A Haiku

My heart stops beating Paddles jolt me back to life Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep. 🙂 Speaking of being jolted, when I am jolted out of sleep I often experience this vibrational sensation that is really hard to explain and will sound crazy.

A Timely Affair

Living on the Edge

Yesterday morning, as my minivan started up, the orange dot reminded me that “Shit, I forgot to fill up the tank. Oh, well, I have 7 miles left. That’s more than enough.”

Cast-offs

Abandoned are these clothes that lie lifeless on the floor of my mobile home.
