It’s been a long day

It isn’t enough.

I was gulping for air that never came. You know, graceless.

Until I let go.

  2. Yes…
    Graceless! My last day off was last Thursday and I’m not off until Friday.
    You know what my saving grace has been? Sherman Alexi’s You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me. I’ve been sneaking few lines here and there between customers the past few days. And every free minutes before or after work. I have you to thank for that. I put it on my reading list last summer.

  5. Must have been missing something, somewhere. Love the photo and am myself often in a position of gulping for air – during the nights, when I just can’t breathe because of problems weighing in on me …. Gulping for air is never done gracefully, it can’t be done. But we are not going to apologize for that as well, are we?!

  6. I have so many days like this. Gulping, drowning, then remembeting to relax and float to the surface. It still doesn’t feel like enough, but it is.
