I live in the nexus between my dreams and stone cold reality. I work at keeping myself solvent.

I talk to fill the empty spaces at times. I wish for joy for those I love. I enjoy a good book. I look the part of whoever I’m trying to play. I smell pitouli on a loved one. I hide when it’s convenient. I pray often but not often enough. I walk briskly in the cold. I sing silly songs I’ve made up to my children and in the car. I can do it if I have a mind to. I watch what is happening around me in astonishment at times. I yearn for deeper communion. I daydream about papayas. I want you to want me. I cry when I’m depressed or very anxious. I read as if my life depended on it. I love to love you baby. I wonder what good this exercise is doing but am enjoying it, nonetheless. I touch the sore on my left elbow. I hurt b/c I’m sensitive. I fear too many things. I hope for a restored creation! I break my promises and that pains me. I eat breakfast burritos and feel satiated. 'I quit blaming you for my problems! 'I bathe myself in the Word. I drink deeply of god’s sovereignty if my head is on straight.

I save important papers. I hug my boys tightly. I miss the way his love would dance within your eyes. I forgive you for you knew not what you were doing. I've learned a thing or two in my 40 years…now if I could only remember when it counts. I have to do something about it. I don't want to change unless it suits me but will end up capitulating in the end. I kiss my boys everyday. I wonder why I wonder is included twice in this intriguing exercise.
