Still life

img_1706.jpg

Life isn’t really though is it? Still. It’s fast and crazy and unpredictable. Today brought a child home sick from school, an unexpected trip to the doctor’s. The stress of a schedule shot to hell faded away with the relief that everything is fine.

And so the day takes on a new texture, pieced together with games of Crazy 8s, pom-pom garland making, naps and copywriting in the margins. Rain falls, the dryer turns its circles, the heater clicks on. Everything that must get done gets done. And in between there are moments of stillness.

    Ah yes, the sick-child-unexpectedly-home. We all know that one.

    Me, I just have a messy house. And I’m avoiding cleaning by blog-surfing.

    Hope it doesn’t turn out to be anything serious!
