Angst on Monday

Karl A. Wilke (1912)


Dear Friends,
I have much on my mind at the moment.
Perhaps if I share my anxieties
the heavy burden will lift.


1.
MissM has an interview!
Today!
Can I keep calm?

2.
MasterM is learning to sea kayak.
Are there sharks in the vicinity?

3.
Do I keep the aqua deck shoes?
Or do I change them for navy?

4.
Will I ever learn more
than six words of Spanish?
Carlos the maintenance guy
is trying so hard to teach me.

5.
I have no Issey Miyake dresses.
What on earth shall I wear
to meet the stylish bb??

6.
Should I ask my hairdresser
for a layered bob?

7.
I am missing Lucille.
When will she be back?

8.
Is it possible that Eleanor
is almost as cute as MissM?
Surely not!

9.
Where will we eat in Cape Town
if our favourite sushi place
is closed for renovation?

10.
Will my brain turn to squidgy mush
if I continue to read
70s romantic suspense novels?

11.
Am I too old to wear
turquoise nail polish?

12.
Will all my cherry blossom fall
before the sun shines again?

You can see now how prostrate I am
with the woes and worries of the world.

Speak soothing words to me.

  1. Never too old to wear turquoise nail polish on your toes, but not sure which shoes would provide the best match/contrast

    perhaps we both need a cup of tea.

  4. LOL @ Elaine!
    Wear whatever you want, if you feel like it means it makes you happy so it can't be wrong.
    Don't you talk to me about ethnic food and missing it. I am extremely sensitive about the subject ... SIGH ...

  6. One day when Eleanor is big, I will tell her how much small portions of the internet loved her.

    We would have to SEE the aqua shoes to know if you should exchange them. Come, now. Let us see the shoes.

  7. Just paint your nails turquoise and let the rest take care of itself.

  8. All my things are horribly wrinkled and my hotel room is so tiny there is barely room for the ironing board!
    Meanwhile, I keep thinking, must save best outfit for Alice!

  9. I can't calm you, I am far too uptight for that!
