Could have been a bad day
And then I thought
just as the sunset

and someone has to dig those graves
and I shall dig a few
with a smile.

Yesterday I managed to make it to the Frye Museum to feed the Muse- and myself because I did manage to score a lavender flavored cupcake and a Ginger Beer on the way- but as luck would have it they were between exhibits so there wasn’t a lot to see- happy day for me regardless… one of my favorite paintings was there so I visited that for awhile:
