Trust

What if, was the question.  What if Trust could be something like floating through time?  That simple.  I've been distracted from things here, the Zone and almost everything I think I need to be doing.  This small cloth  brought back some simple peace.   Actually growing from ideas about living on a houseboat from years back.   Also a what if.   We are older now,  but still, floating through time.   With questions and the same sense that floating brings.

And then, the same sense that certain things are just not fair.

It was a small birthday party on the porch, us two, homemade pizza, Pink Foyd, and later a call with the boy...  he finally tested negative after 9 days of Covid.

  1. We don’t remember days we remember moments.
    the answer for “what if ” just might be yes.
    A Party on the Porch with Pizza and Pink Floyd sounds good to me .
    Glad you son is on the mend.

    Glad for Birthdays and Your son recovering from Covid.

    We can trust our “within” as the wild things do.

    The answer is there is no answer.

    Out of your context, I know, but when I saw your words: just not fair, I saw the juxtaposition of just, and not fair. Too much news, I guess. I wish I could carry my kayak by myself. I think I need a quiet boat ride. Like your cloth today.
    Good news about son. May you stay well.

    Peaceful boat trusting the waves…a good party and a call from your boy with good news…the peace of trusting good things…so precious.

  6. drifting without rudder or sail … currents taking us where they will … we have to trust …

    and the words of the Indigo Girls … The Wood Song … come to mind

  7. Love the waves… and a roof like an arrow. Sounds like the perfect party to me! Also, now I have “Comfortably Numb” stuck in my head. 🙂

      • The bus ride to middle school/high school was an hour long both ways for the area where I lived. Someone would bring a boom box to listen to (there’s a dated phrase I think!) and we would all sing along loudly. “Another Brick in the Wall” was new at that time and very popular. What a great bus driver we had…. 🙂

    Congrars and the smallest parties are the best, to my opinion. Good your son tested negative hopefully he soon feels like a bird in the sky.
    Sending love
