Feeling Outrageous

Outrage is understandable

when expectations are undermined.

Such as you find out

that someone was using you

after promising something else.

I wonder if politics these days

is merely pushing how far

they can get away with stuff

before the outrage happens.

Still, consequences seem to be mild if not nil.

Planning gone Awry

I have begun to realize

my panic attacks happen

when I do not have time

between my appointments

that I feel is comfortable.

Like a full day.

Less than that

I need to be able

to get from one to the other in ample time.

Like an hour or two.

So virtual appointments sometimes work.

Unless they are scheduled

one after the other.

Then I really hope someone else cooks supper.

Personal Truths

Someone else’s trauma

does not invalidate your own.

Being happy to lose

only makes you happier for them to have won.

Being healthy

does not mean you are able to do what everyone else can.

Knowing limitations

means that you also know when to exceed them.

You will never be happy all the time

so be joyful when you can.

Universal idioms

does not make you a universal idiot.

Just a knowledgeable one.

Skat

Wordless mouth noises.

Interesting rhythms.

Jazzy vocals.

Kool Kat.

You would think someone like me

who makes noises all the time would be good at it?

Apparently I am not a musically rhythmic gymnast.

Jars

Beside hunting tools

the oldest indication of civilization

is its ability

to store things.

Precious things like

water, oils, perfumes

and the like.

The most important one

will always be

jam!

Strawberry, Pear or Mango

does not matter to me

so much as it does to my toast!
