‘gators and crocs and snakes
and flowers and aches and sun’s warmth
life. This photo caught my eye on Tumblr and had to be added to the stream of randomruthness since it speaks of the sometimes irony of living.
I spent most of Christmas day on my couch, watching my kids enjoy the day, feeling much like I’d perched myself on a swamp creature about to take me for a tumble. The cough/cold/flu-thing I’ve had has lasted longer than expected. Almost 2 weeks now. Christmas and so much else has been out of my hands. I could only enjoy the sense of being on a ride with precious little control over outcomes. The good news…seems that swamp creatures don’t much like to feed on butterflies…
this, too, shall pass.
