Chaos surrounds me
I need to search for the calm
breathe deep and settle

My youngest is getting married in less than three weeks. I’m sure you can imagine the chaos I’m talking about. Along with the excitement and joy, there are a hundred little ducks that need to be lined up in a row (Thankfully, those are metaphorical ducks!).

We all have days where we feel very old, no matter what age we are. If you need proof, take a look at this video of my poem, Something Old, that was included in A DANCE OF DREAMS back in 2015.
