Where I'd like to be



"...trees trace the backyard
Ditch sop that their shadows drop off into..."

From "Vessel" by Tom Sleigh

Update 2/17/09: All the excitement must have worn me down -- I've gotten sick. Fever and yuckiness putting a crimp in looking at the wide world. Will post more once this too has passed, likely this weekend.

good thing little Billy doesn't live in Quitman, Georgia. Bet that kind of language is prohibited by city ordinance.

And may all things keep improving, health-wise.

To lay on the floor, staring at the sky listening to the sounds of creaking as the branches sway back and forth holding me in their embrace. SIGH.

Not a bad place to hang out for a time, especially given the immediate intensity of your life right now.

On the other hand, we need you in the trenches, from where you send the most amazing and uplifting reports.

I would sooo love to live in a treehouse. All by myself. 2 rooms - a bathroom, and a bed with a small table.

What a fabulous tree for a tree house!
