Don’t take life too seriously.
The Sky is getting very dark, the stars twinkle. Mom Puts her head against the window and yawns. Dad looks at mom and says:
“You look so pretty tonight.”
Mom looks back at dad and positions her head back on the window. Dad take a deep breath and sings.
“Ooh this is the night, its a beautiful night and we call it Belle Notte.”
Mom places her hand on dad’s mouth.
“Stop! I’m trying to sleep. Rosa, could you give me a pillow?”
Rosa reaches for 2 pillows. She puts one on her seat and…
Sometimes there is no good solution.
Overthinking we all do it. Much more than we want. But what are we supposed to do then we can’t find a good solution to certain problems…
Well, I have to tell you I am a huge overthinker when it comes to some topics. Things that can change my way of living. But is it worth it to overthink it why not just trust you're mind that gives the solution?
Maybe because the solution doesn't really solve the problem. Sometimes the problem can’t be fixed which means it's out of your control.
what boredom makes you see.
She was bored at home. This pandemic will take forever everything is closed again. As she sighs at her kitchen table. she looks back at the painting on the wall the golden waves start moving. She gets up and gets closer to the painting.
The waves stop moving. She cleans her glasses and looks again. All of a sudden she sees a little face in the painting. That was not there before. The face steps out the wave and sticks out his hand to her. She touches the painting and the whole painting moves. She…
Mom dresses Rosa with a green dress. The folds at the end of the dress make her look like a princess. Mom picks up a brush and combs back pieces of her hair. She binds a ribbon around the combed back pieces that end in a soft bow tie.
“Look at you, you look like a little woman.”
Rosa makes a twirl while her dress follows her movement. Mom grabs Rosa's hand and walks to the car. Before getting in the car, mom gives Diavolo a peck on the cheek and says:
“Bye Diavollo, thanks for letting us stay.”
The pillows were so soft, that Rosa could easily fall asleep on them. Verito took a bag of candies and puts 4 in his hand. Rosa smiled and adjusted herself in the pillow while tapping next to her. Verito sits down next to Rosa.
“Can I have the candy?”
“Of course, these ones are for you.”
Verito adjusted himself on the pillow seat and turned to face Rosa.
“Now, Rosa, let’s see if the pillow work. Tell me something about Lorens that upset you.”
“He seemed very helpful and I trusted him, but when I got to his house he…
Rosa looks over the bar Verito is nowhere to be found. Maybe he is upstairs. The ceiling is a stary sky like there is no end to this house ceiling. Rosa hears a mixer and looks at the bar.
“Verito!! where were you?”
“I was getting some ice.”
“But you vanished I didn't see you walk away. Where you showing off you're magic tricks again?”
Verito giggles and puts the strawberries and the ice in the mixer.
“You will be surprised at what I can do. My famous strawberries drink is very popular around here”. Verito puts a tall glass…
A lit-up path will make you see thru the rocky path.
I entered your mind Rosa to guide you. I will tell you the harsh truth. but I will still comfort you if it hurts.”
“I will teach you how to debate and what is logical it will make your mind stronger. If someone tries to mentally hurt you the person will have a hard time.”
“Each guardian has a specific task. And I am the one who will tell you the truth.”
When I look in his warm eyes I see the fierceness that I saw in mom's eyes.
What if it didn’t work out?
I want to call dad, but I have to be quiet or I will scare everybody away. I bravely step forward and look for the living room. I recognize the entrance and walk towards it.
When I am at the entrance I see mom and dad sitting in front of a weird circle with candles. Dad looks at me and smiles. He looks at me again and looks at the circle he reaches out his hand to me. I grab his hand and he whispers
“go sit in the circle sweety.”
I sit down…
Strength comes from outside in.
The blurry view is still beautiful my eyes are stinging and my oxygen is leaving my body. I pop out of the water and hear loud chatter.
“Rosa come help me set up the umbrella.”
I run between the people that are laid down. Hold it for me so I can bury it in the sand. I look at dad’s happy eyes the thing that I saw in his eyes is gone.
“Dad do you feel better if you are here.”
“You don’t miss anything now do your little one.”
I look down and play…
If it looks like a creep and if it talks like a creep it must be a creep right?
Rosa Rosa….its the loving voice of her parents. My mom picked me up from my crib and put me in a dining chair. The food tasted disgusting.
Mom somehow convinced me with a plane sound. She looked tired, but still, pretty her short dark wavy hair was shiny and thick. Her eyes were bright green like the leaves in the trees in the summertime.
I hear someone sigh in the back. It is dad! Dad is all dressed up for work…
