“In theory momentos serve to bring back the moment. In fact they serve only to make clear how inadequately I appreciated the moment when it was here. How inadequately I appreciated the moment when it was here is something else I could never afford to see.” 
― Joan DidionBlue Nights


Been feeling some stress lately, so today I took the day to myself.

I went through some photos I had developed from some really really old film, found in a camera bag, made in the 70's.
I read, napped, read some more.
I facetimed with a stranger in PA, who's moving into my home once I leave, and became quick friends.
I stared out windows without worrying about the time and what I 'should' be doing.
I talked with my family and laughed a lot.
I made a Mexican soup and cut up 10 different toppings to add, you know, just for the variety.

Now it's time to knit.


Jake: It's nice to look through the house. It looks different from here.


Honestly, I go out in search of flower tunnels just to walk in, out, in, stop, smell, look up, walk out, and through one more time. Its an experience I recommend.


A trip that looks bleak, but was quite wonderful. I told each house we passed "I could live there".
And I could.
