What is it about some days?
that I feel the tears just behind my eyes
and warmth reminds me of youth…
Today seems just like one of those grown up traps
we plant for ourselves.

Money requires money, knowledge needs more knowledge
security implies its possible loss
and age catches what the others miss
and, still, we play on…half asleep, half aware.

I’ve given up wondering what I want
when I get it, its wrong
and when I don’t, its impossible.

            Hi Babe,
                 I had this card left over and couldn't think of
            a single person to send it too!  Really I had so
            many to choose from that I had to flip a coin!
                 Thanks for a wonderful weekend.  I feel good
            now that we are on good ground again.  I hate the
            times when I let my jealousies overcome my common
            sense.  I know how deeply you care for me.  The
            weekend showed it once again.  Just being alone with
            you made me feel good.  I just hope I don't loose
            the feeling.
                 Call me during the week if you get a chance.
                                 I love you,
                                 (Watermelon Lady)
            Card from 1980, date unknown.

        Of all the stars I wonder which
      one I like the most...
        and then I realize I can like
      them all...
