Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

Weight, Weight, Don’t Tell Me!



There is a single weekly chore,
That I admit, I most abhor.
Each time I step upon the scale,
I tell myself, “I’m such a whale!”
Though not defined by just a number,
My self esteem is torn asunder.
I know, I know, there’s more to love
My vanity should rise above,
The cruel reminder, I’m getting older,
It could be worse, I could be colder.

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path. Awards: While I am grateful and honored for the numerous nominations, I don’t have time to respond to them with the attention they deserve, so for the most part, I am an award free blog.
