Things that have made me cry in the past 2 months:
- Essays regarding being naked.
- Listening to “Samson” or “Jessica” by myself.
- Missing folks.
- My birthday.
- Telling my Pigeon and Hawk story.
Things I have done twice in my life:
- Drive on Route 3
- Have chicken pox
- Make cream puffs
- Open a bank account
- Vomit outside
- Eat a frittata
I just want to climb some trees.
There has been a lot of time spent looking out of windows and thinking about how nice it must be to be looking in to windows. There has been a lot of time spent looking out of windows and wondering whether the rain was cool or cold, and how much of a bruise it would leave on your face when it hit you. There has been a lot of time spent looking out of windows and hoping that this was not the last time you looked out of this window. Or this window. Or this one. There has been a lot of time spent wishing for blinds and praying for sun in the morning and spotting stars through half-inch glass. And there is now time to spend pasting drops to the closed windows.
