benign, sew, a box

*"Benign" A beautiful word. benign benign benign benign. benign tumor=trips to the beach, journeys to relatives, wearing newly sewn dresses,wiggling toes in shoes. Benign is escaping the downward spiral which is the march to death. Benign.

*Constructing a dress .Pattern. Laying out fabric on an immense flat surface. Pinning. The snick of sharp scissors. Needle poking through layers of fabric. The hiss of a hot iron. Hand sewing the hem. Making a tidy bolt of cloth into body covering. Coco, I understand you.

*A box of chocolates wrapped with a flowery hairband on Mother's Day.

gp, dog, abloom

*I really like my general practitioner. She patiently answers my questions and encourages me to be a better, healthier person.

*Dog in the back of the car (it is cool enough so we evade the anti-dog-in-the-car-people), we trundle about on errands. With each stop the dog smell more strongly pervades the car.

*A bike ride to the doctor. Crisp air, few cars, pride at evading the draw of Starbucks, ducks gliding on a lake, fruit trees abloom.
