Have you ever heard of that challenge to describe yourself in five words? Yesterday I sent out a little text to a few people in my family - "How's life? In five words..." It was a small nudge to communicate in a low key sort of way. Some seemed to find it a bit too formidable - maybe they saw it too much like a bar set low in a "limbo" sort of way. It's not going to be set in granite, folks.
Hence, no response - you know who you are. But most sallied forth, gave it a shot, and brought a smile to my face and a little laughter to my day.
This morning I opened all the upstairs windows to clear out the musties. The warm sunshine of yesterday has morphed into cool, cloudy grays; tomorrow it should reach lukewarm again. As I changed my sheets, snapping them in the briskness drifting in from outside, I mulled over a five-word communique for the day. All sorts of competing and contrary words tumbled around in my mind vying, "Pick me! Pick me!"
Laughing out loud, I chose, "April is a fickle girl." There is so much more to this than meets the eye.
