I did come back home eventually (Swearing alert) 8/24/2015

8/24/2015 funny how life just keeps avalanching and knocking down trees in its path until the whole mountaintop rolls off the cliff. ES Reverie, won five honorable mentions for his participation in the Scholstic Art competition, yesterday. His reaction to it was closer to the polar opposite of what I expected, but what else is…

A launch point 10/12/2015

Wait patiently and good things come to you wrapped up in juicy packages. I abducted a spider's web the other day and gave it to a snake we were observing for the week. (That beats me crawling around looking for spiders in all of my corners, though it does solve an issue.) I like to…

Just so you…

I'm trying to find more positives than negatives yet, the planets are askew and the wind's blowing my dress up in the air (try holding a toddler while that happens) He can't remember our conversations my words mean nothing requests result in nothing texts cause no reaction I am the poltergeist in my relationship. I…

It’s all in her head 2/15/2017

He woos her with stares and lowered glances a subtle smile that meets his eyes. She dreams of what could should be when? soon she hopes. His love is direct, visceral hers indirect and all encompassing. Not faults, just ways of being now and in her dreams. * Kindling for a bonfire needs leaves, twigs,…
