Pack it in

People I have not talked to in months
Projects that have been put on hold
Personal deadlines that seemed realistic

all surface

two days before a well planned vacation.

I immediately picture George Washington whenever GOD is mentioned.

I was 14 before the misunderstanding was corrected.

It was too late.

Weak end

The piles of paper
I planned to tame
this week
will have to wait
until Monday.

Lucky Day

Lucky, the dog,
is a perfect animal.

Night Cap

The last thing I need to do before I leave
is find the pens that go with all five lids...
and not one is even in sight.

From Dusk to Dawn

Yes, they call it a Hallmark Holiday...
but it is also an entire day
that I will not wash one dish.

Snowy Mondays make it hard to focus on anything.

Shake Shake Shake

There is blizzard warning for tomorrow and Sunday.

I'm prepared to take complete advantage of this
snowed-in opportunity and get some bullshit done.

Good Reception

Tonight, I am heading to a party to
celebrate a local radio station's new studio.

Hopefully snacks will be prevalent.

I love the radio...commercials and all.
I like to know if the world is on fire while I
am in my studio making business cards.

Sun Rise

The little light my bedroom gets
makes for a perfect night's sleep
but a very difficult early morning.

A fan of Fontina

The aroma of the fancy cheese I bought last week
is still upsetting the studiomates this week.

Fake ID

I have pretended to forget to bring business cards to meetings for
almost three years now.

I riffle through my purse and say something about how I we create them
for all of our clients but I never remember to bring my own--a lie...

I proceed to scribble my information on a scrap of paper as legibly
as I can.

Sense of Direction

I like to tell people where to go...
when they ask me
and I actually know how to get there.

But I really I like to tell them
what to eat,
where to shop
and where to get a perfect
cup of coffee
once they arrive.

Eyed Shadow

I am grateful that I have been
to the Ground Hog's Day
celebration in Punxsutawney once
in 1995.

Today flew by working on
some cosmetic packaging
and I almost missed hearing
the reliable prediction.

Solo Performance

I have some very good friends,
but I would not subject any of them to
the Joni Mitchell Tribute Concert tonight.

I'm going all by myself

and I cannot wait.
