Friday, Cry Day

Yes, I know today is Monday, but
THAT DOSEN'T RHYME, DOES IT???
Ok, then.

Sometimes,
unprovoked,
the sadness leaks out of me, riding on the backs of the droplets of salty water slipping over my cheeks...

I am feeling like a piece of driftwood,
pounded by the waves,
ground into the sand,
drowning, and disoriented.

But it'll pass.
And then I'll wonder why I'm upside down on this planet,
or why the moon is backwards,
and then a mood will change and I'll be laughing and drippping wet as I emerge from what was really only a day at the water park...

It's just one of those inexplicably sad days.
Sort of like wiping the slate clean.
It is receding now, and I feel the return of my gentle joy,
a presence in the antechamber, waiting its turn to reside in me.

Nothing happened,
just thoughts.
Thoughts washing over me like those pounding waves I mentioned.
And it's all a part of the process.
Grit my teeth and get through it.

It's going to be a good week.
I already know this.

Monday, Pun Day.

You have to keep the sadness leeks out of your soup. They really ruin the flavor.

It's been a wild year+ for you Lisa. Nobody can possibly keep the upper lip stiff that long.

A wave came crashing, like a fist to the jaw...

It's Tuesday, silly.
Tuesday = Bluesday.

Cheer up. It's almost Wednesday.

Hump day makes me smiiiiiiiiile...

Leeks...heee....!

The sun does shine, and will shine on your lovely countenance soon enough.

Know it's there, like a warm Hawaiian sun, while you surf through the whirling breakers around you:

Tears and ocean water have approximately the same salinity and checmical structure. The differnece is that the ocean keeps coming towards the shore, but the tears will ebb in time.

Ride the wave, drag your fingers through the water, leaving your imprint on the wake, and emerge in the brightness of the new day when you've perservered through the dark tunnel.

You totally have it under control. Don't let those waves crush you. Surf those muthas!
