Thursday Inspiration 69 — Free as…

Free as a weed in a sidewalk crack. Free as a puppy on the run. Free as dandelion puffs in the breeze. Free as a drop of water in the lake. Free as afternoon lazy bees. Free as a kitten curled in the sun. Free as a turtle on floating log. Free as the scent…

Thursday Inspiration 68 — “Motherless Children,” by Eric Clapton
