The secret to my peaceful divorce?
We never stopped loving one another
Maybe we got lucky that way
Love often seems abstract and ephemeral
Quite difficult to find for many
Love isn’t something you fall into
Like a pothole in the road
It takes steady cultivation and dedication
Like the care of seedling plants
People are not always so lovable
Their actions can anger or hurt
Yet if we stop judging them
And appreciate their tender inner beings
We often find love blooming brightly.

Melissa wanted to know what love is. This is my take, for today. I love you all, my readers and fellow bloggers. I just wanted you to know that.

Paid: a deposit on an adorable
Apartment in Newton: three bedrooms, fireplace
Sunroom with French doors, dining room
Kitchen with plentiful cabinets, good light
Backyard, deck, own laundry in basement
Minutes from the train to work
Walkable to stores and cafes
It’s everything I put on my
Wish list made at a California
Beach last weekend with my sis.
Paid: deposit on a new life
A new school with new friends
One of the state’s best districts
Everything is coming together for us
What excitement we have in store
As our investment bears new fruit.

Sorry this post is a little late on a Friday. I was in Boston until late last night but I knew this would be a perfect topic to write about for Melissa’s prompt of paid.

There is a fine line between
Fear and ecstasy, nausea and exhilaration
A lovely tan and downright burning
Laughter and hysteria, togetherness and smothering
I’ve crossed this line several times
While visiting my family in California
But I’d never do it differently
Because that’s the nature of love.

Melissa wanted to know the bottom line, so I gave it to her. It was inspired by our trip to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk.
Sorry I missed you all last week. I didn’t dare take time away from my family to write a post.

Here are our American toes.
Four years ago in July, my sister visited me right after Independence Day, both America’s and my own. My husband had just moved out of our house and I was feeling sad and confused. A visit from my sister was exactly what I needed.
She arrived with lots of love, support, inspirational CDs (which actually helped quite a bit) and…laughter. No one can make me laugh like my sister. We just get onto a topic and get so goofy that it becomes an unending laugh-a-thon. One of the reasons that my sister is so funny is that she has a sweet innocence about her that sometimes leads her into comical misunderstandings with people.
