Photograph = lesson
The day in the picture
was a very good day.
8th grade at Piedmont Junior High School,
This was the get-up we had to wear as part of our
initiation into the Jr. Honor Society.
I had worked hard
so that I could be
the butt of that joke
for a day.
I do that a lot
struggle, plot and plan
to get myself into tough spots.
In fact I am quite good
at getting myself into hard places
which require even more work to get myself out of.
I read the other day about the foolishness
of trying to zip yourself into a place you don't fit.
like hammering a square peg into a round hole.
I know when I am doing that hammering
I feel it all over my body
the trick is to recognize the foolishness
before you lift the hammer
and look for another hole
a square hole -
where it will be easy.
Maybe so. Maybe so.
