if life gives you lemons, make lemonade, find someone whose life gives you vodka, and have a party

Junk it! September 2, 2009

“Don’t you wonder when it happens?” Shelley is still thoughtful, looking at the box. “When do all those precious things become……just a pile of junk?”

It happens when we are not looking, I think. At the same time those crows’ feet appear, which we tell ourselves will disappear when we get a good night’s sleep. When our dress size creeps up from a ten to a twelve and then a fourteen…….when we are not looking.

“It happens when we cease to care,” I tell her.

-Pandora’s Box by Giselle Green.

    me again- thanks for checking out Kat’s blog! AND I wanted to say a big “THANK YOU” for ps- I know I read it – but I reread it again and again- and you are right- they would not have wanted the words to die. And I need to stop making excuses for the words drying up- I need to just write – no matter what- good, bad or otherwise.

    THANK YOU!

    Will it be taken as sour grapes if I dare to say that maturity brings about a change; matters which occupied 95% of my thoughts when I was 25 doesnt not quite hold the same importance now at 35 😀
