And I’ve got it bad!
I’m in a happy, befuddled daze.
Muddling along, fevered and grinning.
Fuzzy and unfocused.
Prone to long bouts of daydreaming.
Lost in my own vivid imagination.
I’ve been promising myself for weeks
that I’d sit down and write you a long love letter about it…
but the days slip by and I get distracted…
I’m in the midst of a huge whirlwind of activity–
classes, workshops, medical appointments, community commitments,
family matters, counseling sessions, plus the happy, complicated logistics
of plain, old everyday LIFE!
There’s a lot of emotion streaming through me right now…
but I think I’ve finally found words it…
So in my day dreams I am taking a bit of a bohemian vacation.
I’ve packed my colorful imaginary luggage
and taken my gypsy wagon to an enchanted fairy realm
where there is peace and beauty…
and no twittering from a twit.
I imagine my days are completely free here
and I amuse myself in a thousand tiny ways…
painting salvaged old chairs,
& picking bunches of butterfly-kissed flowers.
In my magical little nest,
I imagine myself swathed in color and calm,
resting and reading,
making art all day with my dog Gus.
I pretend I am a child again–
free of all responsibilities
except living fully,
in every moment,
with wild enthusiasm
and complete awe.
And when I imagine myself as a wild, winsome
heathen adventuress and bohemian artiste,
I wear clothes like this
and carry a little bag like this, full of enchantments.
When I find myself curling up for a nap
with my cat Max purring in my ear,
I am bathed in lush color
and gentle, muted light.
So, if you’re looking for me,
please come join me in my spring fever dream!
Behind the beaded curtain,
up the stairs into the radiance of the moon glow,
into the pure magic of our wildest imaginations…
where we can leave behind
all our woes and worries,
all the torments of politics and cruel power.
In the evening,
we’ll make a little fire to comfort the darkness
and cherish together
every moment we have
on this swirling blue planet
in a sea of glittering stars.
Let us pull together,
never far from each other’s hearts,
always holding up the chalice
of our friendship together.
Let us always…

Love and Love and More Love To You
(cuz there’s never too much of that!)
And a very Happy Spring!
