Bumpy Day...

Was it the chill in the air?

Or, maybe the road construction noise?

Maybe it was running head on into change,
forgetting to take the turn in the road,
or to go with the flow...
slamming instead, into a brick wall?

My solace was to take my lumpy-
bumpy-non-fitting ladybug pieces out into the garage
and begin sanding, and sanding some more...


smoothing out the bumps and lumps...


until the pieces were ready to add an extra coil of apoxie,
some gold paint and beads,
until the ladybug wings could once again rest together...


bringing me a stepping stone towards balancing
such a lumpy-bumpy day...
