7:24 p.m. - Poem of the night
"Night Spider's Advice"--Joyce Sidman


Build a frame
and stick to it,
I always say.
Life's a circle.
Just keep going around.
Do your work, then
sit back and see
what falls in your lap.
Eat your triumphs,
eat your mistakes:
that way your belly
will always be full.
Use what you have.
Rest when you need to.
Dawn will come soon enough.
Someone has to remake
the world each night.
It might as well be you.


Current Music: Ke$ha's in my head. Please get her out.

Hi there! As you can tell, I'm still not very good at keeping up with LJ. ::sigh::

Glad you enjoyed it!

Shelob's web may in fact be where Ke$ha came from.

Hi Hum,

So glad to see you are posting.

I've been off LJ for a while (yes, I followed the herd to FB).
