Here are the five words she sent me:
1. Play- I think everyone should take time out to play. I know when I allow myself to play, I notice that my worries dissipate. I evolve into someone else. I become carefree and youthful and I feel the stress melt away. The lines around my mouth, formed by frowns seem to disappear, if only briefly. Play leads to laughter and laughter leads to healing. Emotional healing. Lord knows, we could all use a little tune-up in that department.
I love to play with my camera. Snap, snap, snap. It's my favorite form of play these days, and I really enjoy it. Even my dog is getting used to seeing my camera and she whines now when I start clicking away as if to say, "yes, yes, yes. I'm here, mama. take my picture." She smiles big and wags her tail when I get trigger happy.
Oh, I love to play with words too. It may not sound fun to a lot of people but I like the sound of words and how sometimes they just flow to form a poetic picture. The following words were inspired by a friend's feline shaped wine bottle, which I am holding for her at my house. I wrote this little diddy earlier this morning.
