Emotional Framework

It's a little wobbly. The house teeters when the wind blows. The foundation sinks a little when it rains. The cockeyed foundation has made all the window frames hang crooked. There are gaps under the window sills, and the cold wind blows through each room, bringing snowflakes that float and bob, and land in perfect swept mounds. As though placed there intentionally. But each snowflake landed all by itself. It seems it just never got built right. Some shortcuts were taken. It could be a diamond in the rough, but it’s hard to tell in the state it’s in. It could be beautiful already. To the right eye.

Do I wait for the condemnation notice, or do I call in the construction crew now?

"Shortcuts were taken" sounds like a slight understatement. So, the question is - how much do you want to move? Or how much do you feel like putting into the house?

Um, isn't this a metaphor for how you're feeling, hence the title, "Emotional Framework?"

If so, hang in there, Meghan!

WWLD?

She and Willie would roll some fat ones of Walnut Grove's finest and chill like mutha f*cka's in the backroom of Olsen's Mercantile while Alonzo is toiling the fields with Pa.

God Prego. You are so crass, yet thoughtful. It is an ironic, yet effective heartwarming combination.

Thanks to all y'all for bearing with my introspection. Therapy. It gets a eprson thinking.... Ha.
