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.
