Days Go By

22/52: Days Go By, originally uploaded by DawnsRays.


Isn’t it strange
That princes and kings,
And clowns that caper
In sawdust rings,
And common people
Like you and me
Are builders for eternity?

Each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass,
A book of rules;
And each must make–
Ere life is flown–
A stumbling block
Or a steppingstone.

“A Bag of Tools” by R. L. Sharpe

Oh it has been a week of “stumbling blocks AND steppingstones. . . is it time to tag in my counter part? I’m tired.  

**Update, if you are following along:  AC was fixed, I need a CROWN on my tooth ($$$), and our AC problem was caused by wiring in our main electrical box which proceeded to shut down Monday night.  We are So Very Lucky that the house did not burn down.  I guess the $1,000 it cost to get a new box and all the stuff that goes along with it was well worth it in the end but hey,  seriously Universe. . . I need a frickn’ break.



  1. eek! sending good vibes your way!

  2. Sometimes it just gets a bit much, doesn’t it? I’ll add my good vibes to Jess’ in the comment above! I hope you get the break you need today–or at least some space to breathe and regroup!

  3. Adding more good vibes your way!

    Sorry to hear about the ac and dental work.

  4. Cool pic. I love the shadow in the puddle.
