I haven't been so happy in so long.
neither have I been so exhausted.
one week of school so far and already I am sleep-deprived.
but life has been good and I have lived free and full.
there is so much brightness here. and rushing waters. I have been baptized again into hope.
every hour there is opportunity for new sight.
we live by creativity. sometimes to push ourselves towards new sight. or sometimes only to remind ourselves that creation is good, that art gathers together.
something about this apartment breathes blessing. whites and browns and reds. seeping sunlight through the slats. daisies candles old copies of Browning and Milton. the absence of television noise. art from scrap. conversation.
I'm remembering how to make cranes.
