How am I feeling? It's complicated and healing is a process. So take some of that away. This old @sitelab was the first tshirt I pulled out of my drawer. The words are accidentally so appropriate. I'm streamlined. I feel like a bunch of floating balloons that are red, shiny, free and also fragile, need to avoid pokey things, a little unpredictable, unruly. And It has yet to register that I get to stay this way.
My kids love holiday decorations. Me? Throw up some twinkle lights and maybe never bother to take them back down. Knowing it'd be a long holiday season with lots of home time, we finally got the artificial tree of their dreams. And they set it up the day it arrived, while we waited for election results to be counted. I'm happy with the fall concept tree that will soon give way to ornaments but no, the tree won't stay up like twinkle lights (I hope).
Libraries are magical, always.
the wind is howling, the hearth is warm, the car is packed, leaving home and heading home all at once
a Halloween like no other 🧡
