Today I'm linked with Björn Rudberg at the Real Toads, Sunday Mini-challenge (link)
Bjorn's challenge was to find one of her poems, available online at a karinboye.se, and write something that the poem inspired us to write. I chose her poem, "Yes, of course it hurts," from which the first line goes like this: "Yes, of course it hurts when buds are breaking." You can read the entire poem in English here:(http://www.karinboye.se/verk/dikter/dikter/ja-visst-gor-det-ont.shtml).
-- The flowers, complete with 'buds', were given by our daughter, Karen, to Mrs. Jim as she recuperated from a partial hip transplant.
-- Last Saturday she fell and broke her hip. Her surgery was Monday at St. Luke's Hospital in The Woodlands, Texas. Thursday "we" moved to a rehab center where the average stay for hip transplants is 10 days.
-- The baby tiger is a baby tiger named Mike, after Mike the Tiger of LSU mascot fame.
