love is life

We’re on the verge of starting a new month (March already?!). I’m only a little bit frazzled. It’s amazing the amount of pressure I put on myself to get things done. Meanwhile I miss people’s birthdays and don’t call my Mom nearly enough. I often wonder how people with children (i.e. more responsibilities than me) ever get anything done. February wasn’t a total wash. At least I filed my taxes,  paid bills and gave the dog a bath.

Here in North Florida we’ve had 5 days in a row of cold and gray weather…and you can tell it’s starting to affect people’s moods. Only five days without the sun and Floridians begin to lose their will to live. The sun and agreeable weather is why most of us live here, after all. It’s nice living in the land of eternal summer. Most of us don’t even have a cold weather wardrobe to speak of. I’ve got a leather jacket that looks like I bought it yesterday…it’s 12 years old.

The sun will come out…not tomorrow though…it’s going to rain tomorrow…

And well it should. We lost Leonard Nimoy yesterday. I’m okay with a couple more gray days.

You and I have Learned

You and I
have learned
The song of love,

and we sing it well

The song is ageless
Passed on

Heart to heart
By those
Who have seen
What we see
And known
What we know
And lovers who have
Sung before
Our love is ours
To have
And
To share

The miracle is this
The more we share…
The more
We have
