  1. This is a lovely shot, Melody. I long for more sunshine here on the coast. Your words serve to remind me that others may be simply hiding pain under a crusty exterior and be in need of extra grace.

    A stiff upper lip can cause a lot of pain in itself, never mind what it is covering 😦

  3. Great haiku, Melody!

  4. I’m in the midst of a country where the stiff upper lid is preferred. We may appear as cold, rude or arrogant sometimes but deep within we do have a heart of gold. Just like an egg, hard shell but soft inside. Enjoyed the post Melody.

      Thanks RPD! It’s a good reminder to look past that stiff outer shell. Sometimes I get annoyed by the crust – and forget the nutrition of the egg! Nice analogy…
