soothing the beast

easier said than done

takes time to get it right

soothing the beast

can be quite a chore

takes time to figure it out

soothing the beast for me

sometimes as easy as a tune

the blues being the choice

soothing the beast for me

sometimes can be a good book

I love a good Stephen King novel

soothing the beast these days

takes soaking in a very hot tub

relaxing thoughts taking me away

soothing the beast these days

takes a long Friday afternoon nap

dreaming of a long happy future

so when the beast rears it's ugly head

never be afraid to say right in it's face

I am off for a book, and some nice listening tunes

then a nap where you never will exist

We have to have some balance in our lives. If Renee' gets neglected, she isn't going to be happy. So, you might as well pamper and take good care of yourself and avoid the stress that can and will lead to illness! Relax, keep reading, writing, put on some Billy Holiday or Sade and take a bath. Borrow a book from Kermie! LOL
