...for flowery inspiration

a triple tempting text today

picture this...
pack a little bag
your porche cab picks u up
puff puff away you go
basking in the sun
coasting down to the ocean
along the curvy cliffs
with your new friend
safe and comforting
leaving it all behind till
the weekend is done
rollerblading along
the coastal highway
organic veggie meals
hot springs
bright stars
painting for fun
wine and song/ drumming
sitting by the fire
something about a peace pipe
sleeping to the sound of the surf crashing ashore
again and again
big brother little sister fun
feeling alive and renewed
there is still time to jump

sunshine all the time

"How much of the human life is lost in waiting."

in fact,

It's a big realization.
