The Christmas Path

The path to the new year always goes through Christmas and the last seven days always seem to last forever as the anticipation for the Great Refresh builds.  The annual dinner this year was held once again, complete with classic songs from the bandstand.

Winter is anew
Sunshine blotted out
Ready for a cold nap

#NaNoPlobano2016 Day 27

Victory Lane

transam
The object of life is to come in first
Get behind the wheel, quench your thirst
Racing the asphalt, so hot under sun
Outlasting your competition, the battle be won
The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat
The beauty of it all
Is so bittersweet
And now you are
In the driver’s seat
A whole lot of options
As life continues on repeat

Victory

#NaNoPoblano2016 Day 21

Piano Fingers

pianofingers

These magic fingers

The ones of the pianist

Delicately dance across the keys

That sweet sound telling me what I need to hear

The clairvoyant voice in my ear

I have been reminded that the music

Is the one thing the world can’t destroy

It is the threads that mend even the most broken hearts together

And without the music I am lost without a cause

Just a leaf in the breeze, watching the days pass by

Magic

#NaNoPoblano2016 Day 20

Coin Chaos

Here is a huge pile of change that I have been collecting for the last three years, dumped all over a mattress for this top down shot. That is over $50 in change right there (outside of the picture’s frame as well). I have a feeling that as soon as I get to about $100 in change, I’ll cash all of the dead president coins in and feel accomplished that I was able to generate that much money from pinching pennies from the carpet and emptying whatever loose change from a dollar was in my pocket.

Locally Fresh/Shiny

Locally fresh donuts. The glazed chocolate variety.

So much shining change in this money drop game that I finally won at (but it didn’t count because I needed to use a nickel).
