My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

October 29, 2010 “only one and one only”

“only one and one only”


no substitute for air

to give me breath


no proxy for water

to quench my thirst


no surrogate for sunshine

to light my day


no alternate for blood

to quicken my heart


no locum tenens

no succedaneum


simply nothing


to replace

  8. This is just fun, Tracy. And I do love your cheerful banner in honor of the holiday. Hooray! Happy Halloween.

    I will be off-line most of the day today except for linking tonight to Potluck, but I will respond on our project (thank you for the honor) by Tuesday p.m. latest.

    Have a wonderful day, dear friend.
