402. Size

About size… 

Some say size matters,

And other do not,

Sexually maybe,

Or with puzzle piece slots.

  1. And there is an odd correspondence between those apparently disparate objects, isn’t there…

      I’m glad you picked up on my little joke 🙂

      Not sure that many people did.

      Happy New Year by the way, may 2017 be our best year yet.

      1. Some people outgrown the mind of a 13 year old boy. I’m somewhat proud to say, I’m as juvenile as ever! Not that your poem is — it’s very clever.

        Very clever regularly means rather juvenile.

        We were far happier and more mystically inclined people before we ‘grew up’.

        I’m a strange balance of pensive passivity well beyond my years and childlike wonder well beyond my years the other way. Haha

      3. When I was in my late 30s and early 40s my best friends were neighborhood boys in their early teens who rode BMX bikes and bummed rides in the back of my truck to get to the jumps. Everyone but us thought it was strange that a college professors and a “gang” of rough kids were “besties” but we got it. I think if a person loses the goofy, silly, obscene, irreverent, wonder-filled child inside they will never do anything very interesting or new. Later on, after I met Goethe, and read everything I could find, I found a fascinating essay in which he said the same thing. As one of the boys and I decided one night after tragedy had hit our group and diminished its members, “We gotta’ stay on our bikes, Martha.” I had just gotten a mountain bike so I could still get out into the hills even though I was recovering from a serious knee injury. Stay on your bike; spray paint phalluses in every city ditch; look up when a hawk flies by; stuff napkins in the tops of salt shakers at restaurants; get better at what you love. ❤

        How wonderfully true. I’m glad to hear you never lost your love of life and sense of wonder.

        I don’t BMX, but I do longboard. It’s so liberating to move fast, downhill.. Almost like my childhood desire to fly.

        Sometimes you just gotta ride.

      5. Definitely. Long board, BMX, feet on dirt, mountain bike, rollerblades, fucking STATIONARY bike, whatever you got, stay on it. My favorite absolutely is my own two feet, but trail running takes? Took? Has taken? Its toll. Whatever. Like the Robert Redford character says in “Electric Horseman” “I been hurt. I still get up.”

        Here’s a story I wrote back in the BMX days. It’s all true. ❤

        Oh. 100% agree about trekking/jogging. I just went for a 6 hour explore/ longboard in the snow. Was glorious! 🙂

        Will absolutely read your story shortly!

        I LOVE nature. Those baby Hawks sounded so cute!

      8. They were beautiful and fierce and fragile. Not like baby chicks and yet like baby chicks. It was one of my life’s highest moments for so many reasons, one of those “Take me now, lord. It will never be better than this.” ❤

        Hahaha. There will be plenty more. No need to be fathomed from existence until it’s time.

      10. True, but still. Yeah I hadn’t written a novel yet, been to Europe or seen a mountain lion. ❤

        Hahah. That’s a good list! 🙂

        Speaking of writing, I’ll be releasing my debut e-book soon and I’m working on a few projects at the moment. I love writing!

      12. Yay! Good job! I love writing, too, though, at the moment the thought of it is not enticing me at all. Probably like the corderoy ribbed potato fields all around me resting up for???

        Writing is hard to control, if not impossible, it comes when it comes and it leaves when you least want it to! Haha

      14. I got disgusted, not by writing but by the ancillary stuff that’s just not my metier. I tried hard, but the more I got into it, the more miserable I became. So now writing and I are having time apart. 🙂

        All good relationships have dampened periods, they make the deeply joyful periods more powerful.

        Case in point. I haven’t focused on music in about 2 years, and today I am releasing my producer and I’s new song to the world.

        No pressure. Only love.

      16. Yeah, writing and I feel that the important thing is for us to be open with each other. I have a novel in progress and I said to writing, “Dude, I don’t know who the protagonist is or what the story is supposed to be.” Writing said, “But you have a beautiful ending and you know the characters.” And I said, “Yeah, but I’m lacking conviction.” Writing said, “Chill. I’ll be here when you’re ready.” ❤

        I have the same conversation daily. I fundamentally relate to this.

        It will happen when it is meant to.

        Happy new year by the way!
