Outta the Stripes


some heavy duty work
last night
done

tired but liberated

opening the cage
running toward the weekend
throwing off
the striped costume
living in my skin
for two and a half days

not a teacher
but
a
cyclist
laughingrolling c e l e b r a t i n g breathing
again

- OB but I should probably wear something


...still 4 more days until I'm really done for the summer, though

I've got the ice chest stocked--with the "dark" stuff and I'll be with the broom crew, although I got the feeling we'll just see you at the end. :-)

Have a great weekend OB, and get some miles in for me.

Hope you have a great summer and the well-deserved break from our children! Now you will have MORE time to post of your adventures!

i did a little schoolteaching way back when. But not long enough to fully appreciate the summer vacation thing.

I do remember being damn thankful for Xmas vacation, though...

enjoy.
