Thick is better than thin...sometimes
A leg to stand on
Thick ankles, they really do give me good legs to stand on.

I guess though that as time creeps by, I’ve learned
to slow down and appreciate the once despised aspects of my making.
My ankles not given by choice. but wisdom is helping me to appreciate the once thought imagined curse.
Thick ankles a necessity to carry my many thoughts upon... This is the making of a memoir of a woman named Crystal. A woman who has changed from a child, girl into a present day almost grown up.
