I should have posted this about 3 weeks ago:

It's not that I haven't been thinking about anything. I have.

Lots of things.

Budget cuts. State testing. Never-ending wind. Books I want to read. Family.

And I've wondered about things.

--Why would someone leave a smutty comment on my last post?

--Why are teachers responsible for getting the budget to balance?

--Why is it so easy to miscommunicate with those we love?

--Why won't the wind stop so I can ride my bike and blow these blahs away?

--Why don't we have curb side recycling?

--Why aren't I blogging about these things?

Wednesday, April 7, 2010 ode to spring


Itching to ride

but the wind blows sideways

or the rain pours down.

Beautiful blossoms

make Claritin a much needed companion

to the daily prayer for calm, dry, sunny days.

Oh Spring!

You tricked me.

I thought by now my extra winter baggage would be falling away

leaving no trace as it hit the pavement beneath my wheels.

Waiting, impatiently...
