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.
Negative is such a good word nowadays. Glad your Son is doing better!
Ah, good news…the boy testing negative and your porch party sounds very nice indeed. xo
I can never sleep knowing he is not well.
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.
“thought is like a little boat upon the sea” a line from Donovan “Happiness Runs”
oh gee, I think I have that on vinyl…
I like the idea of the past just floating in. when every joint worked and noooo forgetting etc. will be 81 July 2. will take time to float
What we forget leaves a space for new eyes.
When my hands get too stiff to sew, maybe I will sing, ha!
You said it perfectly: “what if there are only questions?”
such a relief.
Hmmm, we’re all kind of floating through time . . . 🙂
no stopping it
what if we just stood still for a while?
and let the rest of the world float by? I can see this like that.
What if trust was always the answer? Love this piece as always.x
what if trust is not needing an answer?
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.
words are like clay.
just imagine floating.
(((Jude))) love how love makes time
love your words
Happy to hear that your son is covid free.
yeah, a mother’s worry is no picnic, right?
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.
in between storms perhaps
simple joys can go deep. love the stardust. and the boat’s hull, like a reflection of the moon.
yes, riding through and cradled. By time.
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
“Love weighs the hull down with its weight”
Looking at the waves, I’m brought to thinking of how the birds use the thermals and breezes to navigate and travel – something that sounds SO wonderful – a path, but not one that I create, but one created for me…
one that rocks us and teaches us about ups and downs
I have learned this song through you.
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. 🙂
I remember how surprised I was to know my son was listening to it.
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.
Yes what a beautiful piece to capture a time and memory from your life. I have a hard time journaling about the past. This inspires me Jude. Thank you❤️ It’s sounds like the perfect birthday to me.🧡🧡🧡
it’s like daydreaming in reverse.
this pandemic is really wearing…
wonderful small celebrations, the best.
clinks, but it was lemonade.
what a beautiful piece !
it formed with ease.
Hurray for negative!!
Sounds like it was the best birthday Party on the Porch with Pizza and Pink Floyd!
I feel like I’m floating….
and P is for Perfect and PPP which is soulo’s other name, I forgot to say he was there too.
Floating through time .. 9 just trusting and going. I absolutely love it .. LOVE IT! Seems you’re loving your new restored porch. Sending love..
I am, we are. It feels like enough, so much actually.
👍🏻for your son results!
Beautiful idea of floating 💙🕊
there is calm today
Perfect birthday….and glad your son tested negative on corona….i still test positive but don’t feel sick..just tired….what if I had loads of energy….
what if there are only questions?
yes, he just feels tired now…
