What to post?

Yesterday was about death. Most importantly, the one year anniversary of my uncle’s death. Read Moom for the full story. This family got hit by a short, fast train that left us with a small and varied collection of “Amazon” women.

My communication skills are sorely lacking, but I love all of you. Everyone gets knocked flat on the sand sometimes, and I’m so glad that I ended up down there with people who laugh more than they cry.

And speaking of sand, I can’t wait to see you all next week. Even if the reason is not what I would prefer for a reunion.

Death showed up all over the place yesterday, probably because I was already thinking about it. I sat at the yarn store, thinking how strange it was that I was sitting in the same place as I was one year ago when my telephone rang. (Maybe in my subconscious it was not such an accident that I forgot my telephone.)

I cannot describe my day to you easily. Out of the context of my mind the connections are brittle. It would probably take me hours to figure out how to convey my thoughts.

So…

Look:

Actually, look. I’m going to break down. Maybe not all at once…

We’ll see. The third book is not out yet, but I am assuming that it is going to be good like the other two.

They are nice inspirational books. I already have some ideas, just from glancing through them. Sometimes I think that I have too many ideas already, however it makes me happy. (Yes, yarn counts as “ideas”).

I need to go knit!!

That and read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time. I promise some finished project entries soon. Emily is getting very impatient.  Also coming soon, the last two days of Bonnaroo!! Yes, I am a bad person, it is true. I am also a bad person who loves to knit. Things are starting to fall into place again, so don’t worry. I’ll be back to writing regularly quite soon.

    “curious incident of the dog….” is a GREAT book! I’d gotten it as audiobook thru itunes and loved it (although I thought at first I had an erroneous download, given the first Chapter Number….!)

    As for “…laugh more than they cry…”, DOUBLE that “A-men!!!!!!” I for one would’ve been a heckuva mess if it weren’t for the great people around me who share both the pain and the laughter (even if it’s that bizarre morbid humor that occasionally shows up).
