An Acceptable And Excusable Affair

Sometimes we allow Jack and Ginger to meet at our place and mix it up. We figure it’s probably safer to play here than at a bar.

Alone Jack’s got a bite. Bring a bit of spicy Ginger into the picture and he mellows out. If not enough, a little ice will chill him. As for Ginger, it really takes the right man to settle her down. In this case, Jack seems to do the trick.

My friends Jack and Ginger say there is really no recipe for success in their relationship. Mostly it’s chemistry…and maybe timing. (Timing as in the mood to really want them around.) They just get together. Yes, they just ice it and mingle! As soon as they enter the room, stress lessons and moods elevate. Their occasional presence can make a bad day bearable and a good day better.

Living in the Gap

April 19, 21012 –Drizzle

Rain trickles over the roof and spits at the windows. The sky is absent of color; no gray hues as the green leaves of the tree limbs simply fade into white. Though the sun doesn’t show its face the pastiness of the sky brightens as it lifts itself above the trees. Birds are a twitter…maybe the early bird really does get the worm.

Light flows through the scarlet vase perched upon the window sill. No flowers fill its emptiness, but its rosy glow fills the kitchen. From inside the pink silhouette reflecting in the window square appears to be blooms on the bush outside.

  1. Guests like Jack and Ginger are even better because they don’t take a lot of space, they require no more conversation than what you choose to offer, and they’ll happily leave when you decide it’s time.

  2. Brilliantly clever post, Suzi!
