quarantine.

Standard

 home and in self-imposed quarantine

soon to venture back out 

to the stars, the blue sky, the river, and the woods. 

 

 

‘the vast differences that separate the stars are providential.

beings and worlds are quarantined from each other.

the quarantine is lifted only

for those with sufficient self-knowledge and judgement

to have safely traveled from star to star.’

little dark house.

Standard

 

back in the day

when my girls were little

if there was a power outage

I would tell them

we were just like the family

in ‘the little house on the prairie’

 we could pretend we were them

 have lots of fun

it was okay for a while

until it got old

the novelty wore off

when there was

no pa playin’ the fiddle

no butter to churn

no humming and singing

no stitchin’ to be done

no cows to milk

 then we just had to wait it out

and it was not fun.

“where a light can’t live, i know i can’t.” 

-Laura Ingalls Wilder, Little House on the Prairie

go.

Standard

(not me, but someone who approaches things the same way I do)

 

 my favorite quote or word to live by:

‘go.’

in every sense of the word.
