Some Days I Feel Like This......

..........all blurry and unfocused, feet planted on the ground, but feet that want to....fly up to the moon and the sky......

...feet that want to say hello to the blue, beautiful sky, feet that want to brush the clouds; toes pressing on whiteness and blue. Heels touching the curve of the moon..God's toenail shining through the evening sky. Whispiness of clouds, the intention of pointed firs, the curve of a skyline...I want to be here forever. I want to wake up and see that curved line that cuts through the horizon, the blue on white, the white on blue. I want to hear the birds every spring..I want the birds to sing throughout spring and beyond. I want to hear them forever. I want to hear the little peepers each morning and evening. I want the lullaby of frogs and crickets. I want to always remember what a beautiful world this is...even if I am sometime feeling greenish/fuzzy and lost.

So beautiful words Ellen, and like Weebug said: Here is to a calmer week.

Somehow you plucked that feeling right out of my mind - see we are kindred spirits! However I would never have been able to put it into words as eloquently as you have. Keep your eye on the sky Ellen! Hugs!

Well done, Ellen. I know that fuzzy feeling too well. I hope all begins to improve.
