A man would do nothing if he waited until he could do it so well that no one could find fault. ~John Henry Newman, English theologian and poet

Because of the pandemic, I haven’t had a flute lesson in months, and I’ve missed it.

designed to show me that you

aren’t the Mean Girl I fear you are,

that you have my best interests at heart

my heart pounding, out of breath?

Wait, now I remember —

I’ve been here before.

Stella D’Oro Daylillies

Even nature takes a little break.

She pauses between each season

To catch her breath, so to speak.

Within a season too,

Flowers bloom and rest.

All of us need

Some time off.

Don’t you

but never a friend like that. ~W. Dayton Wedgefarth

For the first time in 13 years, I’m dog-less, and that’s a lonely feeling.
