A Roller Coaster Week

Spread the love

For many people the week that went by gave nightmares for many others it just took them for a roller coaster ride, then there are those who were no where near the amusement park. I hope you know what I mean. Here are some images that the week left for us to remember in laughs, tears, anger, smiles and disappointment.

One Reply to “A Roller Coaster Week”

  1. it was definitely one heck of a week this past week. bigger and bigger news stories eclipse each other. it makes your life just seem so much smaller and less significant knowing what else is happening in the rest of the world.

    hope everything comes out all right for you, for that job thing. and yes, poets do have a clear vision. maybe even clearer than prose writers. the latter just has more space to explore their thoughts in is all.

    hope the weekend is going all right for you!
