The Last Time

What if everything just ended?

Will today be the last time
I read a great book
plant a seed
ride a horse
drink champagne
hug a child
stir the pot
build a fire
make a bed
SCUBA dive
bake a cake
fly a kite
write a poem
sketch a landscape
party with friends
iron a napkin
solve a puzzle
patch my jeans
or see your face?




A safe place to spill your guts, expose your vulnerable side, let it all hang out
