FOWC: Valid

It’s hard for T to make a valid point

After all he has arthritis in his upper joint

That must be the reason

What else could it be

Denying climate change to all

While Australian fires blaze uncontrollably

He’ll deny and lie and ignore scientific fact

Even as impeachment is screwing up his act

If there are reasonable, worthy judges of his fate

Maybe they will remove him before it is too late

I wouldn’t keep my hopes up though

I doubt that it will happen

He’ll emerge in his teflon coat

With his horrid cronies clapping.

Word of the Day: Riff

I will riff on my idea of the day–change. It was an epiphany at five this morning after scrambling back to bed from a cold trip to the bathroom. I hate getting up in the cold. But I digress. . .as usual.

I’m laying there thinking my entire problem is change. Above my dragonfly on my site, there is a quote about change and when I chose it, I truly believed it, was positive in my outlook and now, four years later I think, well you certainly screwed that up!

A person can only take so much change in their life till it’s pretty much a revolving door you get stuck in. You just keep wondering when you’ll be able to stop it and get out to some destination you think you want.

There’s the other thing, thinking what you wanted and then getting it, only to wish you hadn’t.

After 2013 and my husband passed away, I wanted a change and boy did I get it. Everything I anticipated as a positive–because I was a positive person and chose to keep thinking that way changed.

Even now, thinking back, I thought starting new, including moving to a new environment, with different atmosphere and even furnishings, would be an adventure. It didn’t work. Not that I want all of that back, I don’t. It’s not me anymore.

Because I’ve changed. Everything around me that I apparently valued too much, is gone, the life, the friends, the family closeness. Changed.

Embracing change is a must, at least in my case. I don’t have a choice. It just seems to happen to me and of course that’s the biggest change of all, not being able to control what happens.

Some people think your life is already scripted and you just act it out as it comes. If so, I’d like to talk to the director.

JuJoJan 21 – Scraggly

No need to wonder, ponder, or debate

Got up with hair that’s scraggly

Got up way too late

Sleep has been evading me

Like healthy habits do

A morning look in the mirror

Proves that it is true

Shuffle off for coffee hoping to improve

The vision, maybe get a better mood

Ran out of milk and creamer, black will have to do

Instead I just go back to bed with my scraggly do.

MLMM Wordle#164

I think it was her mythomane attempt with the red pen to achieve the perfect strawberry shape to resemble a tattoo she had seen on a favorite actress of the day. After euchred endeavors to achieve it with the lightest touch, her swivel chair suddenly jerked, the indelible ink took a wide runaway and a large red cluster appeared. Her only recourse was to cheat, visit a certified tattooist and try to have the disaster fixed.

Note: Do NOT go looking for disastrous tattoos!😳😄
