do stuff with your kids

one day I’ll look back- grateful for the time I spent being with my girls I love haikus. They say a lot with few words. Sometimes lots of words make me tired, lol! Like yesterday- for some reason I was really, really tired. I could chalk it up to the time change and still getting […]

Windows

Separate  inside from out  behind curtains  we peek out   illumination  cannot hide the life that carries on  inside  I have been thinking a lot about windows.
