with

When I was young, like college age or soon after, my dream was to live near a bosom chum. I had more than one close friend that we made pacts to marry brothers and live next to each other forever and ever. In fact one of these friends did marry a brother of her high…

little stuff

When the big stuff is so ginormous that your brain can’t wrap around it, the little stuff must work big. The little stuff that I’m holding on to: Spawn came home (after 5 days into her 2nd semester) because she left stuff home/wanted to see us. My hibiscus bloomed for me. I sketched it for…

march
