letting Sundays be Sundays. As a child, Sundays were set aside from the other days of the week. Somehow they were slower. There was church. and then the waiting for the pot roast while my Dad listened to the ball game lying on the couch with the newspaper tent over... Continue reading

yes...you are right. the word departing was ill chosen. again, lazy language because of how i write posts...without thinking, just whatever comes out as the fingers move on the keyboard. it was more something that came out of Need from all that i've learned... it was a spontaneous movement from something learned to something needed.

The woman who wrote this was part of the documentary Queen of the Sun that Michele found...a documentary that was available for a while on UTube but no longer is. Only the trailer. When Jude still had... Continue reading

Off the Hoop! Everything is stable...the undulating of the Substance that floats the fragment of Soul. Which again, is a very WonderFull piece of Deb Lacativa's dye artistry. So perfect. It is difficult to see, all the small small stitches that hold it all in place, easier with the Cloth... Continue reading

Patricia, over at followingthread.wordpress.com in her 3/18 Post talks about Inertia. And i was very taken by it, by the words she looked up. I would have been surprised by the definition, too.... "the innate force of matter....by which every body endeavors to preserve it's present state...." it's about physics.... Continue reading

the fly free thing is of it's own accord. There is no control, it is free of it's own accord It is. It is very good Practice cause it's how it will go, whether we think it's good practice or not.

yes. I thought of this from you today, Sunday, as i moved through the day. How things can be so easily touched by things that are foreign to our own sense by proximity and i thought that is why i will give whatever it takes to keep that land next to me FREE. if i can. i remembered when across the road there was Sharon who her man friend Simon brought from Arizona and how she would play her truck radio/tape thing so LOUD, the Conway Twitty tape, be drunk and it would get stuck, the blip, over and over and i thought i might go crazy but she set the trailer on fire one night and it was OVER. And i have asked that guy who owns that land to PLEASE don't do that again So far so good.
