at the mansion

For two weeks straight I’ve studied Spanish on duolingo, a 14 day streak!  That may be my record. I’m alone at the mansion while Ming hikes.  I ate Life cereal.  Read some mail. Our friend needs a place to live.  It’s getting down to the wire.  All his animals make it harder. Last night I […]

We are mansion-sitting.  Some of the cactus fruits are ripening.  Just when I thought I might swim, there was a thunderstorm.  We didn’t want to get struck by lightning.

illegal

This morning Ming is helping J with food boxes.  We will be home for a while.  We’re having lunch with our friend at 1:30. My friend Devan has a new song out, “illegal.”  It gave me the chills and gave me tears.  It’s beautiful. illegal by Devan Phenix

wink

The thread that was tied around my left wrist for Shivaratri in spring is loosening.  Ming’s fell off the other day. I’m so tired. Cooking for community lunch today.  Some eggplant J made is thawing on the stove.  So I’m just heating that and making salad, and some garlic lover’s pasta? Photocopied the new poetry […]
