Off to school to see her friends,
play days, fun days, all is well;
connecting at play
and learning each day
to being a social being
an only child you see.

Sleep overs, tea parties,
something new each week
tell me a story,
where is Dorie,
dancing to tunes on our feet
in the park, just before dark
play our way
and only child you see.

    Thanks Stephen. One thing I hope this brings is creativity and strength. As much as I am a social being, I’m still able to eat by myself; go see a concert, by myself, go to the movies by myself; go for a walk in the park by myself. I enjoy my own company. I’m sure Carly will too one day.

      That’s awesome. There is nothing wrong with exploring by yourself. It sure give an opportunity to expand on that creative side. I allows you to create and make significant deposits of wealth which you can then in turn share with others. Continue exploring, capturing those images and sharing your story. Expressions are first captured from our individual journeys which then get shared and become our Released Expressions.

    I do enjoy the manner in which you have framed this specific situation and it really does supply me personally some fodder for consideration. On the other hand, because of what I have seen, I basically hope as the actual reviews stack on that people today stay on point and don’t embark upon a tirade regarding some other news du jour. Still, thank you for this superb piece and though I can not really go along with this in totality, I respect the perspective.
