Thank you for the congrats! Each comment and email has meant so much to me. I am blessed to be a part of this blogworld, yes, indeed.
I sat down at the computer for a few minutes yesterday, ten perhaps, before I had to get up and perform a mommy related duty. My intention to spend hours catching up, visiting blogs, emailing, never happened. O. has been extra clingy, needing me right beside her as she does her schoolwork. At times I admit ( a little shamefully ) to feeling smothered---very very smothered---yet I know how quickly the days are passing and I tell/remind myself to enjoy, really enjoy with a present heart each cuddle and hug, all of our time spent together. She is, after all, my greatest joy. I suppose she senses she is growing up...maybe it's me--maybe I am holding too tightly... I wish I could recall what eight going on nine felt like. And too bad there isn't a crystal ball to gaze into, to show us know we are doing the right thing.
Then there were three or four days in a row when I never made it to the computer at all! Does it ever happen to you that a week will go by before you even realize it---how can it be Friday? Not very much on my creative to-do list was done.
It feels good to be back at my desk though in a few minutes we must rush away on an errand. Although while we are out we are stopping by Barnes and Noble---I am determined to get my book fix in today---maybe get a new magazine---or two! maybe even a chai latte... yum.
I do have a sketch and a poem to share. My favorite of the latest "found poems."
Can you tell where my head is---that I am longing for the shore?
