Sometimes, especially when out with the dog, I think, “You know this is as good as it gets.”
Perhaps that sounds like gratitude or realism, but there’s a wary curiosity in it.
The absolute highlight of my week was talking to a fellow writer and feeling useful to her.
Some themes lately: what children need (they need to be seen); what are some of the differences between having sons and having daughters and are all those observations too reductive; entanglements.
We saw C this week, more briefly than I would have liked, but he still has good friends around here so what are you gonna do? It’s funny to me how after a few years in California, Massachusetts felt cold to him (it wasn’t cold).
I’m babbling, so I’ll close by saying I finally made some chive/garlic butter. We’ve been enjoying it on baked potatoes, pasta, and green beans, to name just three dishes. Yum!
