Summer afternoon,

Lazy, Breezy, Carefree.

Enjoy, Relax, Be a child.


Before long, the calendar will move the pages.

Summer will be gone


so will this carefree days.



A Child,  A Girl & A Boy  Little longer

Before Becoming A Woman, A Man

And shepherding the responsibilities.


a child little longer.

For me.



I am again participating in the March Slice of Life challenge via the Two Writing Teachers site. The whole month of march, we blog and share little slices of  lives- some we experience, some we find while walking around.  Would you like to join us too?

  1. Welcome back. Purviben. Your stanzas remind me of advice a 10th grader wrote to me when I was a student teacher, decades ago: “Keep your young self with you always.” Thanks for helping keep that memory alive.

    • Brian,

      Thanks for visiting. So good to see you back 🙂

      In this fast paced world, I want to hold on to my kids and let them soar. We push our kids too fast to grow up, to worry about tomorrow and do not let them experience today. Therefore, I had to remind myself to let them be kids, let them breath & grow at their own pace.

      Best wishes.
