    You may be the crystal goblet and the wine, but I am the sound of rain on a tin roof, the smell of fresh cut grass on a summer evening, the feeling of the words "glass bottles" as they slide over the lips of a child. I am the train whistle slipping down the river and over windowsills in the night, the still chatter in vibrant green woods as spring topples into summer, and I am becoming the cold contentment of a thick, long snowfall.
    I couldn't become the full bodied melody of the windchime, though I so badly wanted to be, or the smell of woodsmoke clinging to clothing days after the fire. I was almost the faded book bindings in the upstairs window, but fell short, the same way I fell when I longed to be the sound of the coffee, falling and gurgling into the pot in the morning.
    I will become many things still, and have been others in the past, but right now I am, and always will be the sound of rain on a tin roof.

    Wow, my last thought bubble is depressing. To think I really thought I wanted that. Now I forgot what positive thing I had in mind...

    Heard a customer today tell her friends she and her husband were in their 65th year together, then turn to him and tell him it had all been worth it. I told her it's amazing for someone my age to hear that, since years ago everyone seemed to lose the ability to work for ANYTHING. Here's to 62+ more years with my man!!!

      Septimus I hope to one day have 4. Proving I can enforce this sort of discipline on myself while we still just have 2 is one of many things I need to test myself on before we decide 2 more are, in fact, in our future. haha. Especially since our son was born December 20th! May 4, 2012 at 1:24 AM
    Switched the wee one to soy after beginning to suspect he has a lactose issue and he poops on his own now! Every day! Who'da thunk I've ever be so happy about poop?

      Septimus More than twice as much at our local, teeny town grocery. A gallon of milk at Aldi is $3.89 and soy here is $3.99, cheapest brand, for a half gallon. I haven't looked at soy at Aldi yet though! April 26, 2012 at 7:58 PM
