The Jester

Thankful Tuesday.
I am thankful for so many people in my life.
You know who you are ...

Jane is one of them too. She gave Rainer and me this jester when we were looking around for a house to buy to make our home. It was a good luck charm. It worked. I think it is a good icon also for our lives. We juggle the many things which make up our day. Keeping all of the balls in the air so nobody feels "dropped" and like the Jester, we try to do it with a sense of humor and a smile in our heart. Some days are easier than others to accomplish this life task. Others the balls just go whizzing by too quickly. But when the rhythm is just right, the balance of things just so, you realize you had it in you all the time. And there were those people you were so thankful for, helping making it all happen, seemingly, so easily. Thank you.

The word for the day is ... capitulate ... as in ending the resistance, negotiating and to yield.

What a marvelous Jester. I really enjoyed looking at all of her other pieces, especially her 'Story' works. Wonderful, thank you for sharing...
