Gentle January 2018: Day 21


In 2018 I could


read the future in a bowl of water


finish my memoir


celebrate Carnivale in Venice
(probably too cold and crowded)


window shop more; spend less


don't let a chance of rain stop me
from having fun


be more adventurous


worry less about pleasing other people


send Valentines to my friends


make wishes more often


make my voice heard


expect miracles all around me,
day after beautiful day.

Gentle January 2018: Day 20


In my hand

    

Creme brulee in the making.




a passport to adventure


a camera in hand for picture taking.

Gentle January 2018: Day 19


I wish. . . .


someone special would love me
as much as I loved you

Gentle January 2018: Day 17



I enjoy


the orderliness of beautiful markets


jumping for joy


finding heart shaped rocks



pink, ruffly peonies



live music


the changing phases of the moon in the night sky


the pop of red metal chairs, arranged to watch
a sunset over the Olympic Mountains


listening to cats purr


the moment when the sun breaks through the clouds.
