Light the corners of my mind
“Doesn’t it look like Little Purple Ridinghood has bountiful, luscious locks tucked inside her cape?” Calliope asked. “I’m enjoying our art inspiration from Leila.”
“I was thinking in the shower… and everybody knows the best ideas come in the shower,” said Thalia, “… this is the perfect time for Typist to take up a competitive speed sport like swimming or cycling. The hairless experience less wind resistance. What do you think?”
“About the speed sport? Not for me,” said Calliope. “It did feel great to practice yoga at the studio last night, though. What we need now is strength and balance.”
Urania sat up straight and her eyes crinkled at the corners. “I think… I feel flattered and humbled that Typist chose purple for today’s painting, when red might have been the obvious choice.”
A word from Typist:
For those who’ve been with me for a while… yesterday marked three years since Mara left for the great marsh in the sky. Godspeed my sweet girl!
Losing eyebrows and eyelashes. Eeeek!
Sense of humor still intact.
And speaking of humbled and flattered, my friend Billie Short mirrored some of my best qualities back to me in her writing yesterday. What a gift! I find I want to live up to the beauty she sees in me.
In the vein of… what gets recognized gets repeated… I am reminded to observe and mirror admirable qualities when opportunities present.
