Friday was good. It was satisfying, because I got done what needed to get done, including closing some files, prepping information packages, updating data, and getting some paper people ready for archiving. It was just an ordinary, comfortable Friday. I left work around 6pm and went to check out the New West night market on … Continue reading Vendredi, etc.
Without further ado, and in no particular order: Talking with friends, laughing with family. Popcorn and movies. Sunny weekends. Rainy weekends. Blankets and books. Artistry, warmth. Contentment. Green spaces, wild places. Community. Goodness. Last but certainly not least: My headphones and fiddle are just too fantastic for words.
I made it through today. Go me. It was uneventful, but very hot, the kind of hot that had me daydreaming about swimming in the ocean even though when Rube and I went last week it was FREEZING -- and it has to be pretty freakin' frigid for me to say that, in my past … Continue reading Hooray!
Today: Woke up early. Watched "Call the Midwife" Ate cinnamon-raisin toast and peanut butter. Missed my bus, but got to work eventually and managed to get everything I wanted to get done, done!!! Left work 30 minutes early with a clear conscience. Had dinner; piece of chocolate for dessert. Bed. Bliss.
Ha! I've had dinner and it's not eight yet! Celebrating the weekend and having the all clear to leave things in disarray. Listening to Florence and the Machine on my bed. Life is good.
Wild Rice Bistro and Old Crow Coffee shop have attached themselves to my heart. And I appreciate that there are a handful of people I can be at ease with. I feel as if I'm nearly always navigating, so it's really spectacular when I can just trust the people and processes and feel the joy … Continue reading Over dinner and drinks

And physical representations of home are not quite all there; I feel a welcome visitor but not yet a true resident. Regardless, I did enjoy playing some … Continue reading Creative measures and endeavors
Good day at work. Managed to get everything done that I wanted to, without overloading anybody or anything. Good day on the bus with only one heart-pouring episode. Good day at home. Made some solid plans for the weekend which I think I'll live to see now, though Monday was a beast. Really good to talk … Continue reading The day is won!
The bass thunders through my chest, the wood is warm under my palms and I see the flames reaching for the stars on the other side of the glass. I laugh on the inside watching the conversation move in circles from friend to mother to friend to father and back, and hearing the approvals come … Continue reading Pieces of me and you
Listening to this (below) and typing away 🙂 It's been a while! I've been busy. Busy but good. Whenever I'm not sure how I feel about things, I look at my feet, and then my hands. It's a pretty sure thing that when emotions are high, my toes --on their own-- curl as tight as … Continue reading Down the road
