Jumping Through Life

I saw a homeless woman walking down the street yesterday.  She had on several coats and carried her bedrolls and worldly possessions in a raggedy back pack.

Suddenly she stopped walking turned around and hopped on one leg then two for  a short distance.  She turned and did the same thing again, then proceeded walking in the same shuffle she had before.

As I drove past, I realized she’d paused  and played on the hopscotch that someone had chalked on the sidewalk.

It reminded me among all the worries of life, to pause and take more moments to play.

About Barb

I escaped from a hardscrabble farm in Oklahoma. I'm not sure why people think I have an accent. I miss the sunshine, but not the fried foods.

    There’s a lot to be said for enjoying a belly laugh when you can. Watch the funny movies, re-read the amusing parts of your favorite books, get together with entertaining friends. It actually enhances your immune system!

    More of us need to take a moment or two to play. We all need a little stress relief in our lives. Play really helps. Besides, it brings our inner child out of hiding..at least for awhile.
