We just took Anna to the airport. It’s back down to just me and K here for literally the first time in weeks. I already miss A a little but wow. I feel like I just need to breathe and center myself in my space again. (I except hell from K for this sounding like another hippie-ish post.) I need to settle into the season too. It really fall here now, not just ticklings and teasings of impending season change. I feel like maybe I need to change with it a little, as I only know Tennessee in the summer. Season change in a new place is finding out more about your lover’s past or something. I’m sure exactly how to explain it. My head is starting to fill up with words again too so now that the visiting season is over maybe I can get some of the things I ned to do written down and pull out some new stories too. Mostly tonight though, I just want to cuddle up with K and have it be only us in the world for a while. Maybe sort out the insanity of our lives a little. Who knows, we could be actually sort of settled when Joyful comes back to stay for good. (HA!)
I just talked to my mom for the first time in two weeks. She was on vacation which sounds like it was really great and hopefully she’s looking at a new job that the one she wants and not her current one that she hates. Keeps your fingers crossed that the swirling seasons bring her the right change.
