I’m not feeling so damn good
Jump.

I could get another job
Jump.

No one really cares
Jump.

Why push the envelope
Jump.

Flesh on the bone
Jump.

Nothing but tragedy here

Cell phone buzzed

    I imagined someone at the edge of a bridge. Interesting work! I like the style. Life is a leap of faith at times - sometimes that leap can disappoint. Hope your leaps have been joyous ones. I really wish you the best and I appreciate your posts and also your reviews on my work. Write on! Always, Laura

    These were leaps of eternity. Time to check out the other side. LIfe is just death on vacation. Bleed out and see the world. What a post card. ~Kilmer

    I can sure relate to jumping through all those hoops to get the paycheck. Ugh. Maybe I'll jump down the rabbit hole for a while. It might be a nice change :)

    Hey Barbara, Had a moment of weakness. I live in a one story home so it will be a short jump unless I get on roof. And then I will probably only break my ego! ~Kilmer.

    Thanks Sandra, I'll think I'll be ok. Just had a moment of weakness. Stiff upper lip and all that rot. ~Kilmer

    Just a little down tonight. Just a little lonely. I'm sure it will all work out. ~Kilmer
