…having cave days again.  includes being sick, reading a lot (a lot), listening to music, putting things in order.  I wonder if making friends will ever be easy for me. 

now, I’m housesitting, and the kitten is climbing the back of my rungback chair, then climbing my knee.  you know, with claws!  and I watched the day go by, processions of grim clouds and then sky, clouds, sky, rain, all the while remembering my love for the song, “Oh Do Not Fly Away,” Innocence Mission.

oh I love these still, open places.  a gang of swallows prowls the backyard, nesting, swooping, nesting, swooping.
