Monday Morning


Another yawned,

another gazed at the window:

…The blaze of promise everywhere.

  1. I was JUST closing HH’s iPad and this popped up – another winner. A beautiful soulful photo and a wonderful little text – although here it’s already time for a second espresso – but hey, it must be just past midnight in NYC, or isn’t it?
    Have a GREAT MONDAY dear friend.
