Week 16

as my body automatically turns toward the bookstore.
“You may not buy any more books this week!”

as the street band at Pike Street Market
strums the washboard and plunks the bass.
What fun!

that reminds us there’s more then gray and rain in our future.

"Grandma, please get out of the f-ing way!"

Blurry eyed, my two-year-old asks
in the wee hours of the morning, “Mar comin’ t’day?”
How did we get so lucky to have the best nanny ever?
