fourteen days

crepe myrtle
crack
bow
as a
teacher
life is a blur
I jump the cracks
then tie up the week
with a soft string and lace

Isn't that the truth?! But you word it so much more elegantly than I do.

Do you ever feel like you snag the toe of your shoe and fall into one of those cracks? That's me lately.

Happy weekend.

Love the blur!...I used to think of working in a nursing home as jumping into a clothes dryer...being spun around and around in a whirl...then stepping out at the end of the day...

Christina said...

I'm hooked on rocks (and patterns) so I specially like the crack with the nail.
