sunday night

and the house is quiet. am thinking about the week ahead. banana bread, book club, mail-in ballot. undeveloped rolls of film, unpaid bills, new shower curtain. I can't help it, I think in lists. at some point this week, I will: complain about laundry. fall asleep with the lights on. cry about my mom.

it'd be so much easier to just share photographs here. just photographs, all the time. but words are important. even when I can't seem to find the right ones.

  1. I always find it harder to share my photos when I don't have the right words, its often the words behind the photos that mean more than anything I could write. I hope you're ok x

  2. If it helps, you are not alone in any of what you said. We all do this to some degree. Even crying about our moms (I miss mine tremendously!). I connected so much with your list thinking because I do that too, lol. I hope as you day goes on it gets better and richer!
    Peace~

  5. I think in lists, too. I had to make quite a few of them to get through the last few months. I don't know if it would help you but I tried to get one thing done a day off of my to do list. It helped me to focus as well as not beat myself up over not getting everything done. It also gave me time to grieve. Time I still need.

    Your words are perfect. Hugs.

  8. Your words are powerful. I have always been impressed by the way you seem to say so much (with your words and/or your photos) with so little. Does that make sense? I hope you take that in the right context. I mean you celebrate life SO FULLY by showing the little nuances and realities. It is a gift. There are many writers who go on and on with flowery words and never say all that you do in a few simple words. I come to your blog to be inspired and you never disappoint. Bless you in your current struggle, I can only imagine the pain.
