  • Mood:


Wind and rain and flood warnings.  One certainly is aware and awake when rain pours down, and wind howls.

I've been making fires, lighting candles, and reading.  I read Terry Kay's To Dance with the White Dog, Rick Bass's The Hermit's Story: Stories, and James Agee, A Death in the Family, all excellent and suitable for rain.

Now, I'm looking for a change.  I have a wicker chest filled with notes from workshops of the past.  I have decided to pull it out in the middle of the room, and go through what's there.  I have power and food, and I know from the weather the roads are probably blocked, so it is a good day to peruse the past.   I pulled out one Christmas mug but am not yet in the mood to decorate, though I see many of you have.

If you are considering immortality, think of the wonderful jellyfish:  http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/02/magazine/can-a-jellyfish-unlock-the-secret-of-immortality.html?pagewanted=1&_r=0&nl=todaysheadlines&emc=edit_th_20121202

It is a Sunday to savor and enjoy.  Well, of course, every Sunday is that, but this one feels extra special.  Perhaps it is a quality, a character,  of age.  The moments get more and more precious, each one an ornament, a world, an earth,  to turn, embrace, ingest.
