Coming Home...

another back from vacationing on the coast
sometimes they return spoiled and pompous
from spending time in such beautiful rooms...
but they're back here now, reminding me of wood,
fire traveling and the mystery inherent in that
calling and suggesting maybe it's time
the kiln has been waiting patiently...

Tale of 2 Feet...

a tale of two feet...
the left broken mid summer
now healed, the right is a ballon of a foot with no ankles
and quite painful... thanks for arnica and ibuprofen....
it's one thing to knock up your foot
it's entirely another to have no idea how...
don't worry sports fans, no booze involved!
yes...I'm becoming paranoid
imagining some vodoo priest or priestess
holding a doll of me with feet filled with needles...
chanting wildly: Down! sit Down! Slow Down!
another rather large frost heave on the road to Demarest...

in Progress...

onward to Demarest
with a new peculiar development...

Harder Frost this morning
scraping the windshield to get Wyatt to school
geese flying overhead squawking away
the change is coming...
