On weekends

just a little dream to dream.

like the little boy does, with his little toy boat, in the little bathroom sink, making little water splashes, among little rubber fishes, under the soft ceiling light.

just a little dream to dream.

we can sail weekend boats, and cruise blue waters, trail white sea foam, pass silver fishes swimming, and soak the golden sun above.

with just a little dream to dream.

 ‘Beep, beep,’ goes your double decker bus.
Through dizzying streets, stifling traffic, deafening honks.

All week long.

Hey, you did good.

Now park on the side.  Go up to the deck.  And watch life go by, sipping tea and eating cake.

Have a good weekend.

The queen had a ball tonight.

She wore her white gown.  She wore her five rings.

The blue sapphire ring for all the seas of the world.  The yellow topaz ring for all the kindling hearts in the world. The black onyx ring for all the treasures in the world.  The green emerald ring for all the trees in the world.  And a red ruby ring for the sun that shines on all the people in the world.

And we were all invited.

Have an Olympic spirited weekend.

Yet again, we cross a bridge from one passing week to the next.  And yet again, we find ourselves tempted to rush to the end of a bridge.  But why the hurry?

How about we stroll across the bridge.  And watch the sun rise and set.  And see the moon appear and disappear.  And witness light melt into darkness, and darkness overcome by light – and back again.

How about we go by the gentle pace of nature – just for today and tomorrow.

Have an easy weekend.

At the week’s end,

when the evening winds down into quiet darkness after a long summer day, have a good long pillow talk and end it with a good night kiss.   And fall in love all over again.

Have a love thick weekend.

You walked the tightrope.

One step.  Juggling function.

Two step.  Juggling function and family.

Three step.  Juggling function, family and friends.

Four step. Juggling function, family, friends and fitness.

Five step.  Juggling function, family, friends, fitness and fun.

You reached the end of the tightrope.  Free your tired hands and let the balls drop and roll – except for two.  One in your right hand, one in your left.  For that is all your two hands should hold at the end of the rope.

Embrace them and have a balanced weekend.
