Continuing wit August Break. What do you see in this door. I see so much goodness . I see colored walls fallowed by table with filled with paint and brushes. People laughing and I even see a wine spritzer. I see clear vases filled with hot pink flowers , maybe like the ones outside the door. The floors are concrete and its warm inside. I see large pieces of paper hanging on the wall with drawing on them. That's what I imagine.

August Break continues

The word is green. That's how I felt about this 14 mile run. I felt green. I should know better . I should know better than to go run when its almost 100 degree because I get sick. I got so sick after this run but hey it was a good run and hey its green out here and oh yeah I got my miles in.. Oh but did I pray a price. 3 day migraine. It was just so HOT. oh but once again I have to say that my bipolar relationship with running seems to be going on the up swing. I am slowly falling in love with it again.  I even signed up for a 12 hour run this Saturday.  Still no running in crazy heat for me.

August Break continues

In the distance: In the distance I see a big world and my children slowly walking into it. I see shade where they will rest . In the distance I am scared that I will not be able to protect them . I pray that when they arrive I will have given them the tools they need to survive. I do wish I could hold there hand forever but just like in this picture I now they need to learn to walk on there own and probably so do I. 
Water : water fascinates me . It can make you feel so many strong emotions . The calm flows over me when I see it in its stillness. I imagine families on warm days enjoying the water. Water leaves you with memories . It can give you confidence. You can immerse yourself in it and go through it. Its beautiful and cold and very alive.

August Break

I am continuing with August Break. The word is Curves. So many things have curves but I thought about mine and how it can be to accept the ones you have specially after having kids. Its this constant openess one need to have to accepting that our body change with age and accepting that change. Curves is difficult for me. I have always been some what afraid of my own curves. Its a struggle that I constantly work at. Somedays I wake and its fine others I struggle but on most days I am to busy to really care. Life is funny that way.

My aunt is in her 70s and she came over and taught me how to make shredded beef her way. She is the cutest thing stand at 4 feet 9 inches. I love her sweetness and I was grateful to be able to have her in my home. The word for today is real life and this sums up mine.
