sausage

“Do you want me to wrap your sausage in a tortilla?” I asked Ming.  Oh my.  He just got up, and I’d cooked two veg sausages while he was still sleeping. “Uh, I don’t know,” he said. He ended up eating his sausage just on a fork, standing in the kitchen, still waking up.  His… Read More »

clouds

Oh hey, gmorning.  Could I show you some pictures?  These clouds amazed me the other day, in the early morning. Then here’s another sky pic.  What do you think of these clouds?  Stormy!  So pretty!  That sunny part seemed like a magical light place, a portal to a bright world I could dream about. Then… Read More »

sign

There’s this empty sign, one street over.  By a church or former church.  I was taking a walk by myself in the early morning.  Wishing Ming was with me–he went to serve at the Worker. The sign I looked up at.  I love this sign.  I like to pretend it’s a message from God, a… Read More »

cloud museum

“Hey, honey.  What if there was a cloud museum.  And you looked at the sky through these huge frames.  And they taught you the different cloud types.  Then they laughed at you, that you paid money to go to their museum.” I was giggling a lot.  I’d just researched fun things to do in St… Read More »

pleasure and rest

I need more pleasure and rest.  Felt good to identify that, txting with a friend the other day. When he asked “how are you doing?” I gave a thorough answer.  Moody, emotional, curious, happy, confused.  My pain level is going down, so I’m sleeping better–thank God.  But pleasure and rest are two nourishments I really… Read More »

virga

Hey, do you know what virga is?  Virga is when the cloud is raining, but the rain doesn’t reach the ground.  We saw some on our early morning walk, the other day. I always get excited by virga.  Years ago I learned about it from my best friend.  Her play Verve of Verge has a… Read More »

plover

Yesterday we went to a park in Henderson with a lake.  Ming likes to walk there, some mornings.  There are tons of Canada geese.  Coulda sworn I saw a plover.  Where I come from, there are endangered plovers. So I looked it up, and the Bird & Hike guy says yes, when they migrate, you… Read More »

comprehensively funny

“Weird Al is very comprehensively funny,” Ming said, smiling, making a gesture of roundness. Yeah, I’m a comprehensively nice spouse.  He could make a gesture of roundness about me.  I excel at round. I’d shared with him the Stevie Wonder song “Pastime Paradise” that Coolio’s song “Gangster’s Paradise” is based on. Wow, I didn’t know… Read More »

weird day

Yesterday was a weird day.  We went to the storage unit.  They raised the rent again, so we’re trying to clean it out and toss as much as possible. I was upset about a day’s worth of hurt.  A friend was suffering from being mistreated by medicine even more than I am.  I was angry… Read More »
