When I Have Failures

I Dream Of The NBA

Crumpled Paper Swish!

  1. hmm.. this one seemed funny to me..Is it?

  2. Ha! Yes, My Dear it is! So, picture a poet trying to write, becoming frustrated with what he has written because he views it as a “Failure”. So, he crumples it up into a ball and dreams about being a star in the NBA (basketball league) and tosses it across the room toward the trash can and it goes into the heart of the trash can with him saying “Swish” as he dreams of the crowd cheering! It’s probably not well understood by those not up on Basketball.

    Sorry, I do that sometimes myself. Little boy dreams, die hard, My Dear!

    Thanks so much for reading this and letting me go on and on and on about it! You are too sweet!

  3. But I write on my PC only. What do I do😪
