When I was wild....

I sprained my wrist once. Bad. Bent it every which way but backwards. Running. Laughing. Racing down railroad tracks giggling. It hurt. But, it was just as funny in the morning.

I tripped, almost splat, skipping over the river rocks in a disco dress at sunset, racing to meet him in the driveway. Surprise him. And he laughed. Because he knew I was gawky. Clumsy. Accident prone. And he thought it was sexy as hell. Silly love.

I've been careful lately. Watching where I walk. Wearing Converse sneakers without laces. Sitting like a lady. Playing fair. Floating.

Now I'm ready to dance again.....

This just reminds me of me. My nickname has always been Grace... in the most sarcastic sense.

I believe you'll be blogging more so you can come and caress his picture one more time - gosh he's cute

Shimmerrings said...

... and dance, you shall, Miss Lady... and yep, that lil' Landon is cute... he almost looks like someone I know, known as Singleton, in some circles... and may the circle be unbroken :)

singleton said...

Justrun....LOL! Sister Grace! I love it! You sooooooo know what I mean.....Most of my best times have left me black and blue.....Dune rolling~a broken rib, Mick Jagger in the living room~a broken foot, coloring on the Saturday porch~a black eye....I've pummeled out of moving cars, broken my nose once to give it a crook, twice to keep up with Ali, and the third time was a charm....lined it all back up again! Yeah, baby, they don't call us Grace for nothin'!

Sandy...I miss blogging terribly! This year has been a roller coaster, landing here for stolen moments in the wee hours....exhausted! But I have a feeling you're right, peace is coming, and with that.....I'll get to wander, travel, babble, visit, enjoy this blogland once again!

Shimmerings....Ahhhh, clink to you! We are so blessed.....And in this circle, the family tree every color, size, shape and continent, everybody looks like somebody when they smile! In his little eyes, ears, fingers, toes, eyelashes, sunrise hair....I see the world, our circle, new again! And yup, as for dancin', that's what Fridays are for.....and it's time to "turn the page"......Clink!

Peace~love my friends....
It's almost Friday.....
