The weekend was sunny and quiet and lovely. The heat wraps me like a very thick afghan blanket and my already dark skin turns a few shades to a darker copper.I am wearing a tiny suit the one that I won't dare to wear in public because the skin is not the way it used to after carrying babies that were too large for this frame of mine. I bring my laptop in hopes that between the shapes of the clouds and the birds that are flying by inspiration strikes me but the heat jumbles each one of my words. Each word travels on my eyelids as I shut my eyes. I roll each one of them in my head the same way I used to roll the rocks by the river in hopes of a treasure. Tumbling them hoping they become polished so I can wear them around my neck.
Flew away from the nest only once to gather with some friends and celebrate a friends' birthday. Spoke to a lady that knew about herbs and I shared with her my wish to sleep for longer in the night. So I drink a brew that tastes like the earth and the trees and I hope it sends me off to dreamland.
It's a new week we are ready for it we have many projects lined to spruce the nest up since the clock won't stop ticking and my friends are flying from all over to join in celebration. But today I love this body I even love the heat and it's madness.
Will be back later in the week...
Happy Monday Peeps!
