BARE

I received my package of "installments" from my mother yesterday... I love these so much! I swear it is the most meaningful gift I have ever received... Please, enjoy.

Now and then, it's good to bare your soul. You can spill your guts and strip away the excess and get to the bones of the matter. Once in a while, it's good to get back to the bare essentials. To trim away the excess that's starting to smother you, and start over with a bare piece of ground and a song in your heart. Childhood is the time to run around bare naked in the back, so let them have their fun----with bare feet, to boot. Let your little girl go bare breasted while the only thing that's round and soft is her tummy. Put your foot down when her older sister wants to parade around in a bikini that's barely there. After your hair falls out, buy beautiful scarves to wear. Later, when you're ready, be brave, and go bare. Watch out when a handful of hungry teenage boys drop by for dinner. When the party is over, your cupboards will be... B A R E.
