The Boy is on the mend. My gardens are planted. And the best news, we are sleeping in a new bed! After 2 1/2 weeks of sleeping on the floor, the couch, the frat house, & hospital waiting rooms a bed feels like pure bliss. New cork flooring is down in the bedroom. That much closer to the end of our 22 year journey of building this house together. I can't say I have truly caught my breath yet. Still weekly trips to help out my son. The gardens need care. The next phase of ---> can we really, finally, finish our house this summer needs to begin. And, oh yeah, I have 4 Etsy shops. But a little breather is in order. At least a mental one. Big Breath ~~~in~~~out~~~
At last I can be with you!
The grinding hours
since I left your side!
The labor of being fully human,
working my opposable thumb,
talking, and walking upright.
Now I have unclasped
unzipped, stepped out of.
Husked, soft, a be-er only,
I do nothing, but point
my bare feet into your
feel your quiet strength
the whole length of my body.
I close my eyes, hear myself
moan, so grateful to be held this way.
