A woodpecker rapidity-taps on cedar siding.
“Sum-woooons nockin’ on the door 🎶…” Tal sings, “Some buddy’s ringin’ the bell.”
“Body, not buddy.” Nia fails to swallow her correction.
“Double nickel birthday… it’s been a long time coming.” Calliope pulls ingredients from the pantry with an intention to try her hand at pannekoeken. “Today we celebrate! With our help… our plucky little Typist continues to grow into her best self.”
Nią scratches her cheek. “ Double nickel? Or — Two quarters and a nickel?”
I’ll unfold before you
what I’ve strung together
the very first words
of a lifelong love letter
Tell the world that we’ve finally got it all right
I choose you
~ Sara Bareilles
They who in every least thing are wholly honest with the spirit of life, find life supporting them in all things. ~Charles Johnston
Friends -- How does one adequately express gratitude for all of your comments and questions? The time and attention -- LOVE -- you offer to Typist and the muses? We continue to extract our essence and hope that we return, in some small measure, that which we receive.
Happy Birthday 🎉🎁🎉 to ALL of you! Give the girls a hug for me and what a great way to celebrate! Pannekoeken!
“Breakfast of Champions!”
Wheaties? I don’t think so!
