everybody look what's goin' down


I'm learning quiet, but I'm not learning it well. I like words so much; I like to sit with you and make cats' cradles of them, twisting mine into and around and under yours. I like to listen, and I like to watch you listen back.

This job is a crash course in quiet - silent drives under wide-open sky. The stars are staggering, set moonlessly above a nothing sort of town, and remind me that:

1. I am teensy.
2. This too shall pass.

It's one in the morning, and I need to be up at five. Time to drift deeper.

Netty....what's this about you being locked away from Cerbie and your worldly possessions? And you're going (or have gone) to Mexico? You gotta fill me in mi hermana, porque no entiendo! (phew. haven't thought in/written in spanish in quite some time! *lol*)
Anywho. Lotsa love and stuff! Keep me in the loop....
