living pt 2
It is Sunday morning. It is still raining. There is nothing for it - it is BLEAK. I am fighting off the waves of sadness. I do believe I struggle more the grayness now than ever before in my life. And for the next 6 days all they can promise is more rain. The temptation to roll over and close my eyes is greater now than ever.
But I won't. Instead I make lists. And bring out the hand drawn / coloured suns. And indulge in a lot of tea drinking. I distract myself with the knowledge that Game of Thrones Season 2 starts tonight. I don't have HBO, so I will have to satisfy myself by hanging out here and here. Living in an alternate universe helps.
I haul out markers and write in my journal.
In one week it will be Holy Week. Talk about the ultimate in alternative universes.
I have a random teen asleep on my couch. Couldn't go home. Or didn't want to go home. Or .... regardless of the reason she needed a warm dry place to sleep. Right. But, I worry about her. Where do her parents think she is? What happens next?
