First, you feel really long– like longer than January and December and November combined.
Second, you’re not over yet?
Third, last week we were in tank tops and flip flops and last night I felt like an idiot not wearing a hat with my long coat and scarf cause it was freezing as I walked the dogs! Dude. You are all turned around. It’s in like a lion, not OUT like a lion. Get with the program.
Fourth, if I get a cold, March– I am totally blaming it on you.
In other, non weather related news, I seem to have a penchant for lessons. Not learning the lessons, mind you– just repeating the lessons. Sort of like lecons sans frontieres— you know, doctors without borders?– my lessons are without borders, without end, without conclusion– they reach on and on into infinity.
Why? Because, apparently, I can experience a learning moment, but I don’t seem to be able to file the wisdom for future use.
Case in point:
1. Fennel makes me violently ill. Some call this condition an allergy. Sweet italian sausage is often made with fennel.
2. Not drinking enough water every day causes dehydration. When I get dehydrated, there is much pain and suffering.
Don’t eat sweet italian sausage.
Drink more water.
Please suggest ways to get these simple bits of information super glued to my brain.
Yesterday, I posted more blossom photos here if you are in need of more. And really, who doesn’t want more blossoms? If I could gather up all the blooming branches, the budding branches, the whites, the pinks, the chartreuse and stuff them into this apartment floor to ceiling, wall to wall– a veritable bramble of branches and blooms– I totally would.
Good thing the straight jacket they wrap me in will be soft on all the scratches I am bound to get when they haul my crazy ass out of here . . . ahem.
But look– I am loved— in all my wild, fairy tale sputterings and musings. In her interview with Bella, Michelle gd says that my photography and writing inspire her.
Damn! How good does that make my heart feel? Sure I’ve been gone from this blog a lot in the past two weeks, and hell yeah I have a lot of catching up to do with you all– but with that kind of encouragement, I’m taking the rest of the day off.
