Every Which Way But Loose

Listening to the evening news.
Beading tray across my knees.
And I know better.
Slight balance shift.
A gazillion bead pick-up.
Funny thing, gathering loose 
beads. Diminutive art, color, 
texture, form. 
Calming, untroubling my
weary mind.
A floor's worth of worry beads.

Some of my beautiful new Czech beads.

Some have already become new earrings at
CiaoCarolina, my Etsy shop.


  1. Oh I hate when that happens! Very pretty.

  2. Oh *(&%@! I bet you had lots of four-legged "helpers" :)

  3. Uh, exactly two!
    They're always a big help!
    They also like to watch
    me clean up disasters. ;-/
