still



Still no work, Kai still sleeping on the studio floor on the air mattress. So we can both get a little more sleep. No sewing, no laying out quilts, no stitching. Minor knitting, knitting disappointments, time to start over again - you know how it goes. Still reaching for Nabokov's Ada, instead of sewing - and making short work of it, so some perks to sick days, I suppose. Still feeling guilty about not getting any work done. Still not feeling up to work.

Days are going by, and time is standing still. All this still-ness.

I lost one of my favorite rings down the shower drain. Not my favorite ring, not my most important ring, not nearly. But still.
Kai has always said I would lose one, and once I lost it before - actually, at our wedding - but someone found it in the refrigerator, in the salad. Can you imagine? A little gold hoop sitting in the lettuce. I guess I can only be so lucky once.

It rained today. If you're in the states you've probably heard about the severe state of the drought we're in, out here. So a little rain was a good thing, but it was only a little, and still so far from enough.

Listening to a little Charlotte Gainsbourg. Thinking about making soup, something like kale, potato and bean. Maybe tomorrow.

See Ganesha up there? He is the remover of obstacles. He is waving hello.

  1. Oh dear, you do sound very down. Sending you a virtual hug from an exceedingly wet and dismal UK. Be gentle with yourself, everything moves at it's own pace, resistance doesn't help, so try to relax.

    PS: I once lost a little ring - found it a year later, in the bottom of the chest freezer!
