it happens to most of us,

some times, other times,

seem good, almost boring.

it knocks us sideways,

even assunder. i asked you

to carry me.

yet, you left me outside

in the rain. it has been

like this for days. wet.

most of us get over it.

use an umbrella.

learning designers, two yesterday,

alongside history of weaving,

scouring the wool or fulling?

we have many questions. we

have the excitement about the

wool museum, pleasure for the chair

given secretly.

i was at work.

it is a gift, we say this over.

i think of middle mill, the field

and flowers.

we all think of many things, best

to write some down carefully.



. gathering seeds .

warm day, dry . we need to post

the letters. wander down among

the houses. well kept, small front


this is new look, how long has

it been there. i know about this,

look, i am right.

it is a good scooter. i will

watch you and

gather grass seeds, as i did

when i was small.

i am still not very big.

there is a mist, a cloth, hanging,

while i have seen so much. i forgot

to ask about your trip. i had driven

the mountain to see you, parked

nicely, kissed your cheek, talked

about the issues, seen the art work.

this morning is like autumn, though

still in july, softness lowering.

i am so sorry, i forgot to ask

about your trip.

I haven't been on SheWrites much lately.  Been busy doing my own "thang" I suppose.  I'm curious as to what my SheWrites friends are up to, writing-wise, though.  Right now, I'm waiting to hear back from 2 agents who have requested my full manuscript of The Time Minders.  I'm still working on Kingdoms of Blood & Magic, but not as diligently as I should, since I've been querying/submitting for the TTM, doing scads of tutoring at my daughters' school and work for our church's youth group.  How about YOU?

And you.  Is it still damp in Wales?
