right now

"Look! I have the key!"

Right now I am …

listening to the rain gurgling down the gutters
happy to be safely back in my treehouse near the end of a 40 hour day
delighted that I got to spend a few days with a five year old girl, whose exuberance and fascination with the world reminded me of how to live a life*
deeply glad that I made the trip downunder to be with family and honour Geoff’s passing
grateful that I had the means to do so
very very tired. good night.

  3. Right now, I am about to go and pick up my girl. I know that I will be delightedly distracted by two little boys for the next little while. But I am taking a moment to think of you and to hope that your heart is beginning to rest and to heal, just a little.

    Right now, I am standing up for my own self-worth and challenging anyone who doesn’t value me like they should.

    P.S. That five year old was thrilled to spend time with you too :)

    After weeks away from contact (mostly just too busy), I caught up with your family news. My heart goes out to you all. I am amazed, once again, at your ability to write about pain with such a light touch. May you continued to be comforted by the love of those who care for you.

  6. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.

    The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.

    Cheers
