Sick days

Hello friends! I’m just stopping in to explain my absence… it’s pretty simple; I’ve been sick, sick, sick. 2 and 3 year olds, what can you say? I call them my little carrier monkeys. This has been the croup that won’t end, expounded by the fact that I can’t hear at. all. out of my left ear. Good times. Luckily, I have an understanding employer and a Gent who brings me hot tea, cough drops, gooey grilled cheese, chocolate ice cream (yes, I KNOW those aren’t the thing to cure the croup but sometimes it’s all that will do), and doesn’t mind queuing up endless episodes of Girls, Law and Order and various trashy programs that shall go unnamed. So, if you can bare with me a day or two longer, I will be back with renewed vigor. Pinky swear.

    Sorry you’ve been so sick honey. That’s awful! I’m lucky my kids don’t go to day care. Honestly, we hardly get sick at all. I’m not looking forward to school days for that reason alone! Feel better love! I’m on the countdown. Only a month to go. YIKES!

LIVES: Seattle. By way of Santa Fe, San Francisco, and NYC.
DAYDREAMS:Strong coffee. Gourmet magazine. Stinky cheese. Date night with new strappy heels. Green chile. Going back to India. Unabashed displays of love. Vegetable gardens. Clean sheets. Unruly stacks of books. Breaking Bad marathons. Writing like Joan Didion ,Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Joseph Stroud. Cookbooks. French 75s. Sequins with jeans. Leaving love notes.
BELIEVES: “A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security.” Albert Einstein “The important thing is not to think much but to love much and so do that which best stirs you to love.” St. Teresa of Avila “People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances without own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” Joseph Campbell
