i got to work today
i had my shirt on
am not able to ever
right amount of
i always always always cook too many.
tonight i thought
"i'll fix you" (um...to myself)
and i used a smaller pot
AND THEN COULD BARELY FIT
all the potatoes into it
and now it just completely
and i had to move it to a bigger pot.
i went to a writer's group on saturday.
i hadn't planned on reading
the short story i had written for battle tales there
but a good friend
coaxed me into it...
i was totally nervous.
the table was silent as i read...
and i was reading it off my phone
so couldn't really look around to gauge reactions
or to see if people were still awake
when i got to one pivotal part in the story
and the librarian
with her hands in the air
it was both shocking and
so frigging fantastic....
it is such a satisfying perplexing incredible feeling
to think that you evoked
enough emotion in
to make them
(and honestly...it makes you want to do it again and again.)
i'm still editing photos from the fall.
