grey it covers me like a warm blanket...

grey like the puddles of water in the driveway

and the stones that surround it....

grey like fur of ruby..

grey, grey, grey....

it gets in deep and plants itself in my soul

and i cannot shake it loose....

better have another cup of coffee and figure it out.......

the house seems humid and stuffy even though the air is on? so het and i have opened the windows that have screens in them in the hopes the house will cool down...

i have even cleaned the dust off my ceiling fan to cool my bedroom....
it looks like i am starting the hot flashes, wth?

so i am a mess with my inner child playing with matches constantly, ugh!

bad girl....

lazy day at good manor today, its been raining and storming!
perfect day to

stay in and be creative....
except to run to run out to starbucks, ha!

Canis latrans~

late last night between two & three maybe...i was laying in bed with a cup of
tea and my never ending stack of magazines trying to play catch up...
i have taken to sleeping with the window open about two inches to let the
cold night air cool my bedroom which tends to stay warm even with the
vents closed tight..when i heard a loud and very close howling from a coyote
and then another and then another and so was amazing, i was a little startled,
they are close i thought, why? i could not answer that..i felt my heart beating faster
as i laid there listening quietly and none of my dogs even stirred from their slumber..
i know they are there as we have heard them in the distant we we have had our campfires..
i know this is mating somethng was going on and then the all the howling just
stopped in a blink just like it was quiet eerie and beautiful at the same time...
i wish i had nights vision goggles....

writing assignment#2

i am the tall one with arms raised toward the sky..
i carry the weight for many..i dont like to but cannot help it..
i share myself with many..not always a mental choice
but a heart choice especially for the less fortunate winged
and four leggeds.....i am their only home...
i wear my heart on the outside unprotected
in all kinds of cannot be shielded, put away or hidden...
this is the way it is and always will be forever amen...
