What if

What if
All resolutions were off
Due to maximized

What if
You're improved as much
As possible; likewise
Organized and filed and
Ditto weight, exercise, and
Fiscal condition?

What if
You're OK
Just as you are
Fifteen minutes a day?

Attention, Please

I passed a man on the street,
One icy morning;
To be accurate he passed me,
Perfectly dressed
In glossy black shoes without a
Speck of dust.
Even his briefcase gleamed new
And also his vinyl laptop case
Strapped on him like a yuppie's

But man was old, with light gray curls; how odd
On this cold Day: no hat
To top crisp raincoat gloves and scarf.
He turned the corner and I saw it
On a closet shelf, thrown back
Because it had a spot on it.

When you check my blog next time(s) and you see no changes, it's because of vacation.
I will be beyond TV and Internet, sleeping in a bag in my own house in Happy Valley surrounded by the big family.
You can always go back and read some of the earlier blogs; consider them winter reruns!

The next new blog upon return in 8 days will be a sentimental old-faded-blue-jeans-on-the-hook and-the-snow-smelled-so-fresh and then-we-made a fire-and-roasted marshmallows rumination on the joys of not-doing. Why, I will ask, do we always need to do so much, why, I shall muse, can't we always live simply?

These questions will be asked from a well-heated space under a stout roof equipped w/ electricity and running water. Like Thoreau, one must still have clean laundry!


P.S. I plan to do a whole bunch of Christmas shopping while I'm there!

P.P.S. If this blog sounds familiar, check out June 23rd 2009.
