dear ann,

i'm aided to my feet and proudly stand alone ... i read your wisdom admire your honesty relate to your feelings love your wordsmithing appreciate your theology enjoy your life-pictures follow your bliss while i cannot find my own ... and then i stop want no more ... i envy your insight resent your vulnerability desire your approach begrudge your creativity covet your faith spite your gratitude despise your bliss while i cannot find my own ... until i fall once more and cannot rise alone ...
ann, it seems i have a love/hate relationship with reading your blog ... more accurately, i suspect, it reflects my relationship with myself ... sometimes a prayer; sometimes a swear ... what i would not give to share a comfortable cup of tea with you one day. blessings, sarah

True artists/writers, in my opinion, have always looked at themselves squarely in the heart and told the truth, no matter what it is they see. Beautiful ode to Ann. Have a wonderful day, Sarah. Petra

Funny, isn't it, Sarah? The interpretations I've gotten on this poem. Maria was my best friend in h.s. I think I wrote this poem sometime after college. Am not sure. But I found it and thought I'd post it.
Most definitely comfortable in my own skin, but you probably have memories as a teenager wanting to look and act like someone you admired. Well, I loved her black curly hair as opposed to my blonde limp hair; her brown eyes, not blue eyes. The grass always looked greener then. But you're right. To this day, I observe those who are aging gracefully and think, "I hope I look like that."
Ah, poetry and all its different interpretations. *laughing* Will be back to enjoy a comfortable cup of tea. :))

Just making my rounds, and, here I am again to say hello, with my cup of tea. Have a wonderful day, Sarah!
