Child at my house this morning- and the movie is a tad loud- and so- I shall watch again- and listen again when I get to work!

Oh, that makes me sound like a good employee eh? LOL
Here's to hump day!

beautiful, Poet...well-read.

mckuen saved me when, as an adolescent, i discovered the first stirrings of possibility within me...

my favorite lines by him:

"where were you when i was growing up and needed somebody"

(from "stanyan street and other sorrows", i believe...)

Wonderful post!
