Miss D (you needed a name) looked at me yesterday and said "you look happy." Sigh
I was empowerd by the "what if" question. In elementary school our grade six teacher said "don't ask me a question if it starts with what if." My writer of a teacher many years later always said "what if" but who knew it would take 20 years to understand the beauty of "what if."
What if I touched his hand? Would lighting run through my arm?
What if this rain never stops and my sneakers never dry and my feet permanantly wrinkle.
What if I feel like a peter gabriel song today?
What if I'm wonderful the way I am?
What of I only listened to my heart and there was no logic?
What if all there was, was logic.
What if I lived on a farm with chickens and cows? (Yes this is meant to be funny)
What if I really have to love myself. Not just logicaly but really?
What if like many writers do, I create a hero for my imagination and see myself and those around me for who they really are? (I'm getting better)
