battlefield of books...


if only the words stopped playing the insipid age old game of hide and seek...

it would be an easier battle to tackle...

perpetual plotting and strategizing... endless permutations of shrewd preparing...

yet making no head nor no tail...

shrouded in a cloud of desperation...

not quite... no... never quite so ready... ever...

to play... only to lose...

lose the battle... win the war... so some say...

not today...

not tomorrow...

not ever...

or so this one hopes...

i feel the exact same way about my upcoming exams. the EXACT same way. i can't tell where head or tail is, i can't tell where the freaking thing is, let alone head or tail

but we will conquer it. MUACKS. i know you will, for sure. because you are so beautiful, intelligent, insightful. i know you can. whatever can't be made head or tail of at the moment, will be slowly disentangled to be made perfect sense of

i miss you. see you soon, and in the meantime, chin up! -huge hug and big wet smacking kiss- love you lots, and God bless you

hi sweet momma ruth...
thanks so much for the much needed encouragement... and whilst ain't nowhere near beautiful... intelligent and insightful... be crossing my fingers... toes... eyes and nose that we'll somehow make our way out and make some headway somewhere... either way... don't matter which... at worst... perhaps we'll try grabbing the middle and shaking the damn body into existence??? in the meantime... we'll just've to settle for wading our way through the whole confusing commotion... woe's us... -hugs and kisses-
