Dramatic Fragment

woo hoo, it's friday. notice no caps there? i'm so tired i can't even get excited about tgif. i am feeling better though.
I have this great old poetry book I found, The Oxford Book of American Verse. I think I posted from it once before. I was flipping through and randomly reading from it and came across this entry:
Dramatic Fragment
SIR, say no more,
Within me 't is as if
The green and climbing eyesight of a cat
Crawled near my mind's poor birds.
~ Trumbell Stickney
I think I felt like that at one point this afternoon except that when I picture it in my mind it's funny. And I didn't feel funny I just felt tired. Bronchitis really wipes me out. I think the meds are working though as I slept good last night for a change. My other new meds seem to be working too. Co-workers say I'm laughing and smiling more. That is good...
You all have a good weekend and remember to get some rest too. That's part of what the weekend is for isn't it? Resting! Well I know mine is going to be anyway.... (Don't work too hard or that cat's eyesight might get your mind's poor birds. Be my luck he'd be cross-eyed too. LOL)
Be Happy, Be Healthy, Be You,
Tess

Thanks for stopping by Tess. Ohhh, that is quite the dramatic fragment. good you can laugh a little about it.
Hoping you have a lovely restful weekend as you plan. Hoping also that you'll try to make some time for art.
Still planning a post about the caran d'ache crayons. Just too many things on the go.
Angels be with you.

Forgot I was going to ask if you've seen this website: http://blog.crescendoh.com/crescendoh/ I adore spending time there. You might just find some like minded souls. Lots of Art Saves stories to touch your heart. I'm certain you would be able to share your own story and feel quite comfortable doing so.

Glad you are feeling better...I have been having issues for the past couple months now and they still don't know what it is...Oh well you just keep putting one foot in front of the other and go on...It's all good...

Sorry to hear you were sick. I have had two bouts of that in the past year and my ribs and lungs are still sore. Take care of yourself. EASE into life again. :)Bea

Bonjour Tess! Thanks a bunch for stopping by my blog and for your sweet commments about my art! Oh yes, words are art for sure ... I love playing with words, I love recreating a picture with words and just the right punctuation. I think words are also music, one note after another ... Creation sums it up ... Hope you are feeling better now! Take care, LuLu
