Day 317: A Set of Cards for a Friend
“Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.”
-The Dalai Lama
This is a recycled quote, because it inspired a short poem.
My darling daughter, I
have wanted to warn you: the world is harsh.
My darling daughter, I only wish I could
protect you from the bad things
from the crazy and evil people that only judge you
such a suprise, such a wonderful suprise
the nightmares come true
and my own mother never warned me
never told me about the nightmares
she told me,
pray and they will go away
with just a word or whisper
but If I look
and I realize
It’s not a nightmare
it’s just a reflection
of my fears
of some certain part of me
then it’s not
and I can sing along with
“You can’t always get what you want….
but if you look
you might find…
you get what you need”
Anyway, that’s my poem, and those are my thoughts. I have surgery tomorow, so I won’t be blogging! If I have time, I’ll try to post one tonight. The surgery is due to my lady parts, but it’s no big deal. I mean, I’m not really scared.
Anyway, today I have my mineral makeup workshop! Yes! I am looking forward to that. And, I made Cinnamon rolls this morning. SO yummy.
Today, I made a set of cards for a friend. She’s paying for them. This is a set of 10. If you’re interested, I can make a set for you.
I also got my swap from my friend Yoshi. Jewelry, because that’s her thing.
Beautiful, isn’t it? I hope she likes my humble necklace and trinkets. I love her work, she’s amazing at bead weaving. She doesn’t use a loom.
Anyway, I have to rush off. The trains are going on a different train line, which means I’ve got to go up further than I have to go, then change and go back down the right way to the right stop. Then change for the J. Wonderful.
