Cleaning the bookshelves, i found this. Had forgotten all about it. It was from when daughter and i were on a roll. When she had convinced me to move to California. Before her job fell through and we hauled all the Goats back here. So...4 years ago. This computer can't... Continue reading

the worst corner of this house. I didn't take an "after" but now everything is vacuumed, each book, each magazine. Vibration is HIGH. OutSide, where the Very Young Vitex, blooms!

was halfway through sauteeing the peapods, bell pepper, onions and mushrooms for the breakfast omlet when the first wave of it came. Nausea. That grip. Turned the burner off and went to the bathroom, lifted up the seat, sprayed with windex, cleaned the rim. Poured some chlorox into the bowl,... Continue reading

i debated. Both were "true" to the Cloth but... it's the seven beads. Seven black and white and then the one blood bead. Here, thread beads from Jude. In the past, for so many years, seed beads and the African blood bead. And so. What does it MEAN to me,... Continue reading
