Life is pretty. And messy.
Pretty messy. Never tidy. Always straggling ends, chaos. Unfinished.
Rough on the edges, sometime in the middle, too.
My world. A piece of this, a bit of that, a dab of some other thing.
It’s everything. What I am, used to be, will be.
Look. Past, present and future, mashed up together.
Pretty messy. Prettier or messier?
My life is Monet-ish. Real. Soften edges and see beauty?
That’s not too much to ask, is it?
No hard focus please. Ouch, the light is much too bright!
Real life. Living people. Working people.
Struggling, surviving, laughing, recovering, falling down.
Getting dirty. Playing in the mud? Shame on you!
You’ll ruin your dress, little girl.
That IS life. There’s nothing else.
