just reach

Saturday February 11, 2006

Surrounding me is the mess of life.

It traps me at times.

My loft living/photography taking friend sent me the most lovely letter and little package the other day.

She said, “All is already yours, just reach out and take it.”

I am trying.

the plan

Friday February 3, 2006

This fall Mary had bats. Real bats flying around her house, hiding behind blinds, and waking her up at night. It was out of control. When the boys came home the plan was to go on the roof and secure the chimney. Diagrams were drawn and supplies were purchased. The safety ropes were set and the ladder brought out.

The morning was pure comedy filled with Mary hanging out the attic window shouting ideas, neighbors gathering on the street, and the engineer and mountain climber brothers figuring out how to successfully secure the chimney.

Just a typical day on Baker Avenue in Mankato, Minnesota.

I sorta can’t stop thinking about what it would be like to actually be on Survivor.
