Life Among the Never-Winged

Once upon a time I was writing a book called, "Just Another Love Letter", about angels behaving badly. Now I just quietly ask myself each day, "What the hell am I doing?"

My friends always knew I was going to hell. My only hope is that God likes good jokes and bad redheads.

    The Light

    It's the light, this time of year, that helps hold me together.

    All summer, the sun crossed the solid blue sky high and mighty like a god, shining down hard and even and impassive.
    The sun is lower now like it was in the spring,when the light brushed along the new buds and shoots with warm fingertips. Now the light trickles in under the yellowing leaves, touching gently what is about to die.

    The light passes under the eaves and falls across the floor, splashes over the walls in Spanish coin patterns.
    The light comes in, like an old friend checking up between long trips. Soon it will be gone again for months, pale as the old photograph you cherish, the one of him, the one of her, the paper crinkled from too long in your jeans pocket, from too long in your sweating palm, from too long.

    Soon it will be time to tuck the garden into bed. I wanted to keep it going under glass, under snow, under that pale winter light. But I don't think that will happen this year. I had my hopes, but right now it just seems like too much. Maybe I'll feel differently tomorrow, or next week after my parents are back home, after the store's move is a solid thing underway.

    There is a tightness in my chest despite the wine I drank tonight. There is a spring that won't uncoil, a pressure behind my eyes building for no particular reason.

    De nada.

    Beautiful images you wrote there. Makes me contemplate a time, not that long ago, when the northern climate I left behind could effect my spirits so radically.

    I know it's trite, and perhaps a bit overused, especially in kung-fu flicks and Star Wars Universe discussions, but you know, without the winter how can we appreciate the spring? Without the night's impenetrable cloak how can we truly love that outpouring from the sun?

    Without family driving you crazy how can you really enjoy the peace and solitude of an empty house? *grin*

    I, too, am overwound suddenly. It happened overnight.

    Have any wine left?

    I was thinking of you the other day as I cut back (read chopped up!)my forsythia. I wish you could come over for a bottle of wine and some advice on how to make my yard look pretty. If you are ever in Oregon...

    Thanks, Bud. I'm not sure how I'd do in a one-season climate. I think I'd have to go somewhere to watch the spring and fall.

    Ir: Absolutely right, sir. And right now I'm enjoying a parent-free house! :-)

    Amusing: Hand me your glass. How are you today?

    Julie: :-) I'd love to. And if you're ever in Denver...

    Popeye: Excellent idea. I plan on indulging tonight.

    Esereth: Thank you so much. You're one of the reasons I'm doing this. Unfortunately, my next post isn't so pretty.
