hmmmm. . .nothing since January. . .been facebooking too much I guess! Gotta wonder how Live Journal is faring against the onslaught of FB. . .
Many many thoughts of late. . .should capture them here, for my own clarity. Pictures, too. I will be back.
Quick thoughts in this moment:
^ glad I had a good phone visit with Sean this past weekend and that he sounded so relaxed and happy :)
^ glad it was CHEAP to fix my old Honda's AC since we are FINALLY having some 80 degree weather in the PNW!
^ glad I have a job! with benefits! ah this financial climate is scary. . .was behind a young man in line at Subway sandwich shop today. He was 90 cents short to pay for his lunch, and his debit card was declined. He looked so stricken. . .embarrased. . .I handed him a dollar. Glad I could do that.
^ glad I have a husband! Life is much nicer shared :)
^ glad I have such wonderful, amazing children and children-in-law. . .and grandkids! And my sweet sister and HER kids and grandkids! And all the dogs! And my very fat cat! I am very very blessed in my family. . .
^ glad for all my grrlfriends. . .and for the AMAZEMENT of reconnecting with a few from high school, 40 years in the past! ahh the magic of facebook. . .
^ glad I live by the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea. . .
some recent haiku:
on driving across the soaring green suspension bridge between Washington / Oregon, at Astoria. . .

a mirror pond flat
water reflects green girders
old iron bridge rises
on reading a friend's wrenching poetry as she deals with new widowhood. . .

in the stark white space
calligraphs of emotion
she speaks her stunned heart
that's all for now :) oh - except for my very fat cat. . .
