i took things off the walls and cleaned them, putting in boxes or just letting go of
i took down the curtains, the half curtains on the West Window s of the Room, all coated with the Polvadera Dust and will wash those windows, for Travis and Everett. Everetts little dog, who is the size of a baked potatoe, Mr. Fluffy, died last night. He is Grieving. i wonder if Everett will feel Isolated here?
i washed the beauty FULL African basket that sits day after day on the kitchen counter with seeds in it...other stuff like hose washers in it...washed it with a tooth brush...scrubbing it
everything but the last two are stitched down
the silk is the hardest to stitch down, without flattening it, taking away its beingness...
now...Thunder. Lightning. more. Long talk with daughter. They celebrated Fate's second birthday by going to the zoo....daughter, Alyssia and Emrie, Ashley, Fate's mother and Elijah, Fates older brother who is 8. Went to the zoo. Which wasn't perfect but was what it was and we talked about that. I am deeply grateful that we Talk.
