Life Got in the Way

Golf Gypsy
I wanted to write a story 
  But life got in the way.

I wanted to write about rat and Phyllis
  But I played too much golf.

I wanted  a little girl to be cured of cancer
  But all I could do was a send a flutterby prayer to heaven and wait. 

Tony, Lora, Letty, Jack at Prairie Dunes
I wanted to write about my travels
  But I've been on the road visiting friends.

Percy and Great Grandma Alleen

I wanted to write about our family and all the fun we have,

Katy and hen
 But I was too busy playing with cousins, nieces, daughters,  and all, so what could be better than family, I asked.

I wanted to write about my sister studying in Guatemala,
Antigua, Guatemala
  But all I've done is enjoy her pictures while awaiting her safe return.

I wanted to write about my grandson's trip to Singapore      with his parents,
Mike, Ann, Isaac

 But that is his story to write.

Bluebird Books

I wanted to plant flowers and weed my gardens,

  But I've been reading, playing, and relaxing instead, so the
 gardens will survive.

I wanted to take my daughter and great niece to Turner Falls to create new memories, And we did.

Letty and Percy on top of the world.


  1. Lovely way to say how life 'gets in the way' of writing. You have lived well, Letty.

  2. Looks like you're having an amazing summer so far!

    1. It's been a most unusual summer and I'm loving it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
