“Each week Carry On Tuesday will publish either a famous quotation or a line from a book, song or poem and invite you to Carry On where words stop. You may use some of the words or all of them either at the start of your piece or within the body of your work.”
Juggling life now
My candle burns at both ends
May I take a nap?

This week’s inspiration prompt:
The first line of Edna St. Vincent Millay’s poem,
“My candle burns at both ends”
My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends–
It gives a lovely light!
— Edna St Vincent Millay
