this is the order in which i took these photos.
the light in our house about an hour ago was spectacular.
i can see the moon from the kitchen window.
anna is all hot and dry after the bathtub.
i hung three more strands of lights today.
there's no music on now and the quiet is noticeable.
lindsey just woke up from the couch, moved upstairs, and may be down for the night.
we have leftover lasagna to eat.
so much food in the house.
the shoe situation in the front hall is getting serious.
someone put a quilt on the radiator for the cats.
it was so cold out on the trails today, it took me by surprise.
that's been happening a lot lately.
i need to do better at work.
i'm going to start on that tomorrow.

charlie got hit by a car yesterday, full on, and lived to tell the tale.
that's just the tip of the iceberg.
there was a little bit of everything,
and everyone seems
somewhat on the edge
of holding on and letting go.
i can't say for sure which is which and what
is the right thing to do.
but i do know that we are all motivated by the good;
by love and admiration and humor and caring and history and longing and need and curiosity.
mostly, just by that first one.

at higgins beach one morning in august.
the morning callie slept in.
polaroid 250. fuji fp 1000b.
peel-apart at the beach is a particular challenge.
i had my cards read last night.
from what i remember, i'm stuck. and it's urgent that i get unstuck. a card was upside down.
there was more, and it all made perfect sense at the time
but now i'm not so sure.
what i do know, is that it's getting hard to move through my days
with so much uncertainty.
everything seems upside down at one point or another
and almost the minute in which one thing rights itself
some other thing
the least i can do is count heads every night.
and i do.
at least i do that.

cozied up on a neighbors couch. a neighbor with all the conveniences still intact.
we have no such conveniences at home.
we have hot water!
we have a gas stovetop!
we have one line from the neighbors' generator that's hooked up to our fridge.
we don't have internet,
so i'm here sporadically.
and we don't have heat.
so it's cold
and dark when we come through the door.
but we're just fine.
i'll be back when i can be.
in the meantime,
best wishes to you all.
