Dangerous Compassions

love / loss

Today we’re giving bookshelves to our friends.  Our friends are renting a truck to pick them up.  We already moved Ming’s spiffy folding bookshelves to Las Vegas.  These three tall wooden bookshelves will not make the move with us.

I thought nothing was holding me to Sacramento, but I see now that a ton is.  Yesterday we saw my church friend V.  She gave me a beautiful shawl from India.  She’s 76, she told us, and will move soon too.  She can’t do anymore the things she’s been doing. 

My beautiful V–was this the last time I’d ever see her?  So much love, so much loss.

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.
