Blueprint

The principles of structured stone
convey a scheme for living
like when to bear the weight alone
or when to be forgiving,
and how to harness common sense
when squaring strong foundations
a level is your best defense
stay true in all relations.

Best advice I've heard all day. You can learn a lot from stones! Especially smart ones.

I am reading you most every day. Nice new look and the poem is indeed a good blueprint.

Shirley said...

Nice Header...reading you like a blueprint! Do you believe that Glenn was once a stone? How do you suppose he came back as a big ugly cricket? Makes ya wonda.

Crunchy Weta said...

Yes I was a foundation stone in a medieval church near Dorset.

Well I'm glad it rocked you Shirley ;-) Now I think you should tell Glenn you're sorry, it's not like he's a big hairy spider, besides crickets make sweet music.

I've always meant to ask you Glenn, is weta pronounced with a long or short e? (don't ask me what that has to do with your comment) Spunky huh, I like that! And how praytell did you extricate yourself from that church without bringing the whole thing down, or is this a past life thing?

Hey Billy, well I'm glad someone is and thanks for all your efforts!!
