That's a delightful statement from my new FaceBook friend. I can't help it. I am a responder by nature. This is how I responded to her.
What Can I Trust Now?
I trusted my instincts and look what it got me...
My life has turned to just this place and my words
Are whorls like stars in Van Gogh's sky.
They leak like that and turn me froward
(Used to be a real word, like toward and untoward)
And I rationalize in a hurry these days.
