Tip-toe

almas-gemeasWe may call ourselves

old

tired

aching

but as soon as we hang up

our dancing shoes

and put away

those lovely outfits

that stir life

like a well made cocktail

it is then

in the glow of firelight

and solace of old age

we rediscover the child

waiting within

as eager as ever

to reach out

on tip-toe

      2. Oh my gosh Candice, this means so much to me, thank you! I will never forget the kind way you encouraged me early on in my blogging. I love that WP can bring such different people together who share love of writing, and your talent has inspired me so much! I am very grateful our paths have crossed too. You are unique and intriguing and the honour is mine xo

    1. Sarah, If I have never told you before how much your writing moves me, how much your insight and compassion in this world is needed and valued, then I hope you read this because I truly feel that way and I am always, always so grateful for your friendship and your existence in this WP land because you are a light and a goodness we all need so very much. I hope you have a wonderful weekend my friend. Thank you.

      1. Well I think self esteem issues and progress from the high school mentality might be issues. Some never ever impress enough when returning to a high school reunion or home to visit the folks.

        I enjoyed my 2 past H.S. reunions because I never did give a damn what folks thought of me, even in H.S.
