A Conversation With Myself

What’re you doing? Get back!
Don’t worry. I’m fine. I know what I’m doing.
What if you don’t? And this all ends badly?
Nothing will ever happen or become if I’m too afraid to try.
Reconsider.
No.
No? You don’t know what’s going to happen. You don’t know how this will turn out. Everything you’ve worked for.
Life’s too short not to love. Look around you. All your work is nothing without love.
I’m afraid.
To love?
Yes. What if I’m wrong?
Then you’re wrong. And that’s okay. Do not fear love. Love makes us. And we are not fear.

“THERE IS NO FEAR IN LOVE”

Finished Yet?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When can I be done?
When we have enough to be finished.
But when will that be? I’m tired. My fingers hurt and my back is sore.
I’m sorry, sweetie, but we don’t have enough to be finished.
But …
Quiet, now. Complaining won’t get it done any faster.
Why are you crying?
Hush. Let’s get this done.
Do you think they’ll like it?
Who?
The people buying these?
Oh, I don’t know honey. They’ll probably just throw it away.
What? But it’s so beautiful and we work so hard.
It’s just the way it is. Finish up now.
Alright, momma.
