Don’t Mind the Gap

A little tip

for those situations

that might seem intimidating or beyond the boundaries of the comfort zone:

As you eye the gap between here and there

what you’ll find amazing


that the tools necessary to build a bridge are trifling

maybe thirty words of common language–

no grammar–

a cute sidekick who sometimes rubs his eyes

and an ability not to fixate on a mole the size of a dime

    I could maybe do the no starting at the mole–but not if there is a long hair growing out of it. I know because I’ve been in that situation before!

    it’s that last bit of advice the rest hinges upon.

    That would be a challenge, with or without the cute sidekick.

    Just caught up with your new address and back posts. The one about Virginia moved me immensely: both the subject and the manner in which it was written. In fact I found tears in my eyes for all the right reasons!
    They say friendship is an art: you and Virginia, and Kirsten, seem to have it in spadefuls. I send all my best wishes to V. for many more good months with Kirsten, and to you that you have mores wonderful visits together.

    ah, yeah… I would be staring at the tablecloth and trying reeeally hard not to throw the word “mole” into my sentences by mistake.

    Over-looking oddities is key.

    The mole would definitely do me in.

    Finally got through! Whew! Why did I have such a hard time getting to your blog? Whyyyyy?

    I’ve added you to my blogroll, where I will never be without your (new) site again.

    Ah, but perhaps she is looking at your mole-free face,and finding it equally difficult not to stare.

    A cute sidekick needs no translation.

    moles and such can get you all cross-eyed, no wonder cutie-pie had to rub his eyes…
