Run, Jump, Play

Sometime life can be downright, effing annoying when you used to use food to placate yourself and make you feel "better" - but you can no longer do that. Believe me, I'm realizing now, that it NEVER made me feel better, only bigger!

What's really annoying is when you have to face those problems because you are on a special temporary diet where you can not eat any food. It really is rehab.

But, tomorrow I get to see some friends, some old, some new, and I am so excited to take a class with Jesse Reno at Carol Parks' studio in North Hollywood.

I will not have to face any problems tomorrow, only be with lovely people and have a creative time. So, with that in mind, I will share this little ditty I wrote on one of my vacations last month - let's think of more ways to Run, Jump, Play!

Run, Jump, Play
by Tally Oliveau

Run through the water
not a care in the world.

Run
Jump
Play

Throw the ball
You can have it all,
when you

Run
Jump
Play

Hop on your board
and paddle all day.
Nothing can be wrong
when you

Run
Jump
Play

You know, I have the print you made for me hanging in my office, and I try to find the things I can do for myself that make me feel as free as the image you created.

Love the poem. Looking forward to catching up with you when school's back in session!

Hi Tally!

It's me, your table mate from Jesse's class. It was really fun to meet you. I see from your posts you are the philosophical type. ME TOO!

Hope the rest of your summer is sweet and that we get to meet again someday.

Diets suck!! I'm thinking of you with love and compassion, because it's a tough road you are on!
I hope your day with the "Wild Ones" was fabulous!
