Wild Woman Nuggets


Wild Woman, in her habitat


So much depends 
on getting one's coat 
(and one's attitude)
on right-side-up.

So much depends
on whether one's legs
hold one up
when you first stand up
in the morning.

So much depends
on one's ability to go on dreaming,
as the years roll by
and the dream stays
just one tantalizing  titch
out of reach.

  1. Must admit, your second stanza gave me, a chuckle or two, Sherry. Especially, given some of my meds can cause me, dizzy spells.

  13. Dreams wouldn't be dreams if they were easy to catch, yes?

  14. I do sense you are moving closer....still a bit out of reach, but I think you can see the view in the distance!

  15. Keep reaching and stand tall! Your dream is still there and you are getting closer! Hang in there~
    Love this one and your photo!!

  16. Keep dreaming. AND you have lived that dream - some never ever get to. I can tell you hold that time close in your heart - and I do hope you get there again someday. Love the photo!

  17. Oh those dreams just beyond our fingertips... I think I need to grow longer arms! We just need to take stock of just how many dreams we've lived.

  18. I love how it starts with simple, every day things (reminding us what some people take for granted) and transition to a very big thing.

  19. It is always one step at a time even when we want to sprint. Love the basic, practical thoughts and then the dreaming.
