Candle light dancing in the wind
Their shadows bouncing off my walls
Thinking of yesterdays and yester years
Amazing memories sweetly teasing my senses
With their flirtatious sway
And titillating movements
Gently lulling me to dream land
Promising yesterdays, hopeful tomorrows
Leaving the lovely past behind
Dancing its way back to reality
Giving me strength for today

I saw a lovely blue and white looking top
It really did appeal to me so I took a closer look
And discovered right under the racks, a lovely little girl
She could not be a day older than four, I thought
Oh what a sweet innocent cutie pie,
At first I thought she was lost or needed some help
Then I realized in disbelief
She was frantically tearing the price tag off
She looked up as her sister came closer to her hiding place
She daintily placed the band on her head
Linked her little hands with her sisters,
And they skipped on their merry way out
You can imagine my shock at this spectacle
I was so shocked I could hardly move.
The little thief! She made away with the headband
Obviously, her sister was aware!
I forgot all about the top and slowly left the shop
My vision of innocence shattered for the day
By the lovely little thief!

My Yesterday

Picture taken somewhere between Arkansas and Texas!

Impulsively, I almost closed this blog! I was a little annoyed and I have been known to act without thinking too much about it sometimes. Again, my only excuse is I'm short and my heart is way closer to my head so sometimes it doesn't take long to process things at all. When things make me mad, I tend to either ignore, recoil and rebound or totally shut down. I guess as part of my New Year's resolution, I will even be more fearless and vocal about what I think although I am still going to keep my handwritten journal for personal matters which won't travel back to "family".

Anyway, the New year seems promising as usual. I love new beginnings! It always makes me happy :) HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE! May you be fearless and bold in what you believe in! May you be absolutely compassionate in your dealings in everyday life! Hugs, Maxine :)
