apropos of absolutely nothing to do with this morning’s helping of icons from my “Fox Spokane” icon series… a bit of melancholy pseudo-haiku fit for 4:00 am on this Friday morning.
Dreams of a simple life slip through my fingers and
to the floor
If you must know, this tinge of wistfulness has been well-earned over the last 36 hours. A simple oil change on my car today ended up costing me over $1000 dollars; my hubby’s back in the hospital (again!) for the 6th time in the last 18 months; our son took a turn too fast on his father’s pristine-condition Triumph (now no longer pristine), scraped the heck out of his leg and then had to return to his apartment (250 miles away) for a job interview last night; my live-in 91-year-old mother-in-law (whom I’m here alone with tonight) forgot today what to do if she’s thirsty and has a glass of water in her hand; and I just learned that my third round of chemo failed to do its’ job. In other words, it’s just another day here in Cleveland, Ohio and life continues to fly by. …Lovely.
Well, enough of that crap and onto something far more interesting and fun! Intermission is over and it’s time to return to “Fox Spokane”!
