to tell you a story
this is the story of a moment from yesterday.
i look up into the big bare tree right into the vein branches and up into blue sky
i look down, into textured bark, marks and ripples and history
i hug tree, arms wrapped only half way round because tree is so old and wise and wide
I love you!
actually i shout
I love you
unbeknowst to me
a police crusier pulls up
it isn't enough that Bea is rolling her eyes, (just a little)
police officer says'
okay i've got to ask
just loving this tree
a nature lover eh ( thinks nature nut...i am presumming)
just loving this tree
five minutes are up

friday morning begins with a box of pencil crayons belonging to someone else once...
i think friedrich took a flight to holland from hamburg
and liked green and photo brown
occasion had it he played golf and the lottery
and did quite a few drawings
who is friedrich c. jenson?
and was this his box of pencil?
smelling of must
from the goodwill
where friedrich left off

leaves of brown clink to chain link fence
for today's magic trick
i return to a place i once was
this time as a healthy volunteer
and this time the option is mine to come or go.
no i wasn't in prison,
i will learn to be mindful
i will learn to meditate
and my fear of inclosed spaces
will vanish in a puff of smoke
actually that is the worry,
the cable of the elevator breaking
into a puff of smoke
i will learn to sit
and lean into points
and the next time i have to fill out a rather tideous application form
i will not eat a bag of hard candy
but put my fingers on the coffee table like the lady in the video
contemporary building materials such as plywood..
i will be mindful and conscious
and only have a couple of hard candies
that i taste and suck rather than crunch.
today it was windy
and owen's tail curled just right
and wearing the chocolate brown parka
zipped up to the top
and i worry about being smug
and i worry sometimes
but not as often as i used to
cause leaning into points is prickly
but isn't half as bad as being scared of the big bad wolf of the self.
want a candy

today owen meet george.
115lbs of rottweiller male.
george is afraid of small dogs
and takes his food delicately.
he approached owen carefully,
slight tail wag, small huff
owen responded in his puppy on a string dance
bobbing and swaying.
george got to run off leash,
george scared me
i braced and held tight to child
thank you owen
thank you george
i know now, you can't judge a dog
by it's cover

I will be teaching a workshop at Nathalie-Roze and Co. Creative card making, featuring sewing on paper. Fun hunh? I hope it will be.
Lots of other fun workshops to explore there as well. Please check out the link.
please note, an odd thing my pics are getting cut off on one side, wondering why that is happening?
wandering around little India today, searching for peeling paint, wish I could post smells because the "smell track" as my sister calls it, is spicey and delicious, it just hangs in the air like a appetizing cloud.
