This morning, I went over to the park on the street where I live; Lucille-less. I just wanted to breathe in the fresh morning air and be in the moment, unencumbered by my little circus puppy, who is charming and funny but needs to be watched all the time; Lucille feels she alone, can eradicate those pesky squirrels from our world.

I  am terrified of big dogs, so I rarely go to this particular park even though it is literally down the street from my home , because this zaftig neurotic lesbian jewess does not think it is relaxing to be jumped on by large loping  roaming free dogs despite their owner’s protestations that Rover is ‘friendly’. However, this morning because of the recent falling back of time, I thought it might be worth the risk,  hoping that my doggie neighbours would still be fast asleep in their doggie beds.

So off I went, down the steep step of stairs that brought me directly into the park and then; boom! sun glorious sun and wide open space and no one there but me and I was so happy and so grateful to be alive and whole, arriving
here on this beautiful sunny day and just to make the morning extra delicious ,the song ‘September’ by Earth Wind and Fire came on my Ipod and I began to dance wildly and with abandon and sang loudly and badly off- key and opened my arms and my heart to this glorious perfectly flawed world.
