the last holdouts at the grandies’ slumber party at peaches’ (my) cottage.

cousins, cartoons, baby golf, talking dogs, books,

made-up group stories, pizza, mac ‘n cheese, apple juice, suckers,

stuffed animals, laughing, whispers,

sleeping bags, pillows, pj’s, flashlights,

and not much sleep.

“no one looks back on their life and remembers the nights they got plenty of sleep.”

collections of very imaginable oddity

you could never imagine.

omsorg.

our latest ikea experience

was spent looking for a few cool things

we didn’t even know we needed or what they were exactly

but

it was really all just an excuse to spend the afternoon

finding secret shortcuts

through this blue and yellow warehouse of good stuff

by using the trial and error approach,

good guesses, maps, fancy footwork

and leaps of faith

 what a grand adventure it turned out to be

 (and we even ended up with the omsorg of our dreams as an unexpected bonus.)

“what romantic terminology called genius or talent or inspiration is nothing other than

finding the right road empirically, following one’s nose, taking shortcuts.”
