Sacred Rituals

Like comfort food and
talking about
All The Things
while the littles scribble madly and order
whatever the hell they want.

Family Reunion

November 11, 2014

That song has a lot of bad words, doesn’t it?
Yes it does.
But who won the bowling game??
The Kunneckes did.
And then she sings: My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around…
I die. Quietly.
Why do Kunneckes get so distracted?
That, my dear, is a question for the ages.
And the little one pipes in:
I’ll miss you! I’ll MISS you!!!!!

Oh day.

November 6, 2014

Today was a day of
freakouts.
Of pull-your-hair-out
first world problems.
Of banshees in my head
with their mean stories
and horrible predictions.
But it was also a day of
strong, kind, tough and tender friends.
So today, like always, I depended on the kindness
of the women.
And after good food (Biwa, naturally)
and good bedtime stories
I have declared that tomorrow
will be a good day.

The lights are back on!

Though reading
The Mists of Avalon by candlelight
did have a certain glamour.

Roast Chicken Triumph

October 21, 2014

At one point my girl
said,
Mommy! Are you actually–
having FUN cooking???

And there for just a brief moment,
as she peeled potatoes and told me her thoughts
and the rain came down
and we put lemons inside our happy chicken,
I might have been.
But don’t tell anyone.

Holy bagumba

October 19, 2014

Well, folks,
today
was a day.
And now it is over.
And that is all I’m going to say
about that.

Tea time and laundry

October 16, 2014

There it is, sweetness and care;
little girl arranging a tea tray
and setting it down
among the folded stacks.
I’ll take this over tidiness
any day.
