Over But Not Under

The word for today is tenacity. The chair in the picture floated up onto my dock about four years ago. After the water went down, I sat it upright and waited for its owner to fetch it from the dock. No one ever did, so there it has been. The wind blew it over but otherwise it has not moved. Violent thunderstorms in summer! Bitter north winds in winter! Oblivious to all forces of nature, there it clings! ITSJIM the blog has sort of been that way, clinging tenaciously to the web no matter what was happening in my little world around it or what outside forces were trying to assault it. The world finally caught up with it, however, and now “itsjim” belongs to someone else. The word for tomorrow will be audacity.
