Unfolding Wings


“If you were born without wings, do nothing to prevent them from growing.” 



Unfolding Wings
a.k.a 'Don't Rain on My Parade'

today's the day
your wings unfold
they've been cramped up far too long
spread them out, show them off
beautiful and bold

don't let anyone clip your wings
especially during flight
it's your sky too
use the space
 your completely within your right
~ Catherine

You manage to capture some really beautiful images. It's hot as heck around here still. Thankfully the humidity we had for several days went away. I've been in Kuwait nearly 18 years and I still don't understand kms or C. I'm used to miles and F. All I know is anything above 40 is hot as hell and that's usually where we're at. :/ Have a wonderful holiday. Tammy

Today's the day to stretch my legs.

Do not ever let my legs stiffened like a piece of steel.

Walk the hill.
