POV

If you've been over to the Monkey Crumbs blog lately,
you know we've been painting the boy's room blue.

We wrapped up today as I put a final coat of satin
on the heaven-hued ceiling.

Aside from paint and silver and motherhood and The Monkey,
this is what I'm working on...






What can we offer others if we don't
even trust our own instincts?

The stray splash of sadness (or blue paint)
that threatens to drown our smiling eyes?
They say that, since birth,
crying is just a sign we're alive.

Now.
To live with deliberateness...

Have a lovely weekend, everyone.
