5. The fish still make me smile.

6. Black polished nails growl for glitter.

7. I magnify his stress, how can I just listen & let him know he is heard & held?

8. She pats my back when I pick her up. Comfort returned & given.

9. Today I shall be…eyes wide, mouth shut.

Nine. Nineteen.

1. When you wonder the exact pattern, amount of blood in your eyes & scar made from bashing your head into a mirror. #parents

2. When your mother tells you to stop caring about her & your dad. What does one reply?

3. Thank you to the sweet lady who watched over my child while I used the restroom. You are an angel.

4.  Deep breath. Repeat. And again.

5.  My scalp still tingles

6. Sail. Calms me down a notch. Or twenty. No need to ask why, it just does. Magic.

9. Let’s dance in this space. 

Nine. Sixteen

1. A mini cauldron full of confetti makes me Halloween happy.

2.  Minor philosophical epiphany: our endless options not only leave us less happy (FOMO), also makes us less tolerant of everything. Less choices=more love.

3. Drove a different route to see the horses on the hill. The spotted one needs a cowboy.

4. “To write is also not to speak. It is to keep silent. It is to howl noiselessly.” -Marguerite Duras

5. The blue of the evening sky/beyond my ability to describe/I lose myself in it/& remember my significance.

6. To all of those who choose to protest in St. L, DO BETTER. Take your energy & use it to volunteer, do it for the side you stand on, in loving memory of, do it for the community you live, work & play in.  Do it to tell a better story & do it for love. Get off the streets & DO BETTER.

7.  He gave a high five to the security guy!

8.  Let the sun fall in your cupped hand. Today be only this:  the thing that holds the light. -Shabbat Kiker

4. This body, once again all mine, needs to be known again. She needs to be heard.

5.  The way he runs, tongue involved too. Wide smile as he covers ground.

6. She likes me more than her blanket, right?

7. The simple happiness of a weed bouquet given away.

8. “If it is messy you are doing it right.” Seems true for life, creativity, love & much more.

9. I ache for clean and simple.
