*When I was wheeled into the operating room and saw the sharp instruments laid out tidily I thought "Wow!Just like that tumbir 'things organized neatly'" *Sitting at the kitchen table I see the pink and blue of the sunset through an opening in the trees. *The sun generated lights in the backyard turn on one by one until I can envision the parameters of our space.

cling, mundane, balance

*Water clings to the shiny needles of the new pinon pine after I give it a sunrise shower. *Returning to mundane, tidy-up chores. *The town is still dark when the dogs wake us barking, barking.Shadows of four possums balance walking on the top of the fence explain.


*Sitting in the midnight grey over the worst part of breast cancer and alive,alive. *Alone awake in the quiet house. *Home to fuzzy puppies.
