I Can’t Find My desk
Sunday, April 11, 2004

Okay, that isn’t entirely true. I can find my desk. I know where it is, still in my office, but I can’t see top of it or any square inch of space where I might pile more material. So I guess I really ought to clean it and put some stuff away before I continue on my merry way.

The cause of all this is pictures. Last week they slowed down my computer, this week they clutter my desk. Next week I hope the albums that the pictures are in will be cluttering up my bookshelves. See the progression?

Our dog got a clean bill of health from the vet! It was her annual check-up and shots, so she is good to go for another year. The vet said her teeth were in better shape than most people’s. Which reminds me, I need to floss.

I’ve got to get ready for Wednesday. I lead my writing group this week and I had originally planned to take in a series of pictures and have people write about whatever the pictures brought to mind. We’ve got a guest writer coming this week and she’s visually impaired so I’ve got to come up with some tactile objects from around the house to add to my pictures. I also thought about ground spices, or maybe scented oils would help evoke some sensory memories for group members. I wonder what Serenity would smell like?

Last week our writing group walked to a horse farm to see the new babies. That didn’t really evoke much for me. I thought they were cute and I enjoyed being out on the farm but I didn’t write anything about horses. I ended up writing about taking the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island. I miss Seattle a lot. I wonder if I’ll ever be able to live anywhere again where the sun isn’t out everyday? You get really spoiled in the Southwest with all the bright light and brilliant blue sky. Stay tuned to this blog for my bitching about the incredible heat in the southwest….coming in just a few weeks!

Be well, be safe fellow browncoats!


We’re headed for a past that we can leave, but not defend
