"To Do"; a poem from a friend, inspired by an email from me

To Do



To settle down

To plant roots

..........with a person

.........A place
..............Make a commitment

Stop running about

.........flighty girl,

Stop holding onto the family so tightly.

I got ................. the goal,

The modalities,



Now to do....

love that image a lot, it really reminds me of my mother--way back in memory, the outfit.

Neat words!
Love roots grow sometimes really slow, then they get stronger...but you can't force it... that makes it harder to happen--i swear our own psychic angst mangles the root ball ?!.

As long as I get to wear my dress at some point. Then again, maybe I can just wear it for myself!

i send this guy a lot of rambling emails, he takes my words and sentences, chops them up, photo shops in a picture and voila! i keep telling him we need to make a coffee table book of these things. he's a wise, old guy.

We think you should write a book anyway...WAIT! You can add that to your to do list! But yes, you should write one.

That is great - reads like a poem to me! A coffee table book sounds like a good idea too!
