Carpe Diem


Freedom oscillates in and out of life
At times the stars are right at hand
So seize the moment when you can
Au naturel, unfettered make a stand

Streaking comes to mined...unfettered.

Always seize the opportunity, for we never know when the next will be riding by.

My mind races, unfettered,
while my body says "Sit still."
Creativity my key to freedom.

A call to arms! A call to the muse! A reminder that freedom is not always at hand, and that we must indeed "carpe diem"!

This was simply stated, elegantly rendered, and 100% true. Thanks, Laurie! Amy
