I'm sitting here reading The History of Love, which I am loving by the way, listening to the icy rain as it hits the window, what a great, great sound. Little tick, ticks...

It made me pause in my reading as if someone was trying to get my attention.

Well, I'm listening.

Inside My Purse

Inside my purse is a scary place
the scariest place I know.
Got things in there that growl and moan
things that have hair that grows. (I know, I've seen it)
Is that makeup I see? Lipstick perhaps?
or something I was planning to eat?
And what's that ticking noise I hear?
My son's wind up toy with feet? (I truly hope so)
Every once and a while I have to go in
searching for a license or floss.
But damned if sometimes I don't pull out
a clump of hair or is it moss? (I just tossed it back)
It's a love/hate relationship I have with my purse
I love to spend money on them.
I love the styles, the way that they look
With the new outfit I bought for the gym. (Hey, a girl should always look good.)
The bigger the bag the scarier it gets
with the bottom never to be felt
I just have one thing more to say...
If I'm not out in a minute...send help.

I feel like I have to add an addendum here. This was way before I bought the Coach purse. You would never find food or moss or even floss in that bag.  These were my cheapy bags.

Changes...and isn't that what life is about?

Well, I have certainly let things slide here at Moon Clippings. In my defense, life has a way of creating these changing tides sometimes, like a rip tide. And like a rip tide, if you fight it, you will lose. I decided to ride the wave and although it has pushed me further and further away from what I thought I wanted and into some very murky waters, I am relinquishing. And you know, I am ever curious about where this ride will take me.
