tread lightly on the path of least resistance
on wooden toes, find strength, one must perform
balance on frail bridge without assistance
bright light in sight, no ligaments yet torn
plie, pirouette, without extension
trained for timely twirls to softly land
faster, faster, dizzying dimension
unruffled skirts, poised lithely, final stand
unapplaused in practice and performance
musculature, well-versed, its memory
carries through, determination’s dominance
treads lightly, choreographed, till finally free
Apologies one and all for being an absent blogger. Didn’t even hand in a sick note! Final leg here of around thirty thousand words in reports due in for tomorrow. No sweat. Well, maybe a little glowing – I’m a lady. Except for the swearing that has accompanied using an online reporting programme only barely fit for purpose. Bring back pens, I say. I’d have been done two weeks ago. Hope you’re all well and I haven’t missed too much. What’s the gossip? Oh, wrong forum. Been off everything. And all without withdrawal symptoms. Bit of a surprise, that.
Now, back to last of the reports. Any euphemisms out there I haven’t used to temper bad news? Just how many ways can you say, ‘you’re wean’s a lazy, blethering tike’?
