Happy Lucky Idiot

A day off... the words of poet Nanao Sakaki describe it better than I ever could ---

If you have time to chatter
Read books
If you have time to read
Walk into mountain, desert and ocean
If you have time to walk
sing songs and dance
If you have time to dance
Sit quietly, you Happy Lucky Idiot

(from Break the Mirror - North Point Press, 1987)

ps - Fat Gurl is my alter ego --- she usually has a ribbon on her bald head, but in this candid moment she has a mohawk, poor dear
