HAPPY FALL, Y’ALL!!
Much going on here, with birthdays and an unexpected, magical trip to
and takings-out and puttings-away of Summer and Fall things and outlooks on
Something about that air. Something about the turning and the changing and the closing down of things that sends a message of slow down and settle in and even listen.
So, moiré non about the trip, but first, a tiny moment that made me smile my face off, and be glad the room was dark.
Sweetpea spent the night not long ago, and greeted her old friend Gecko the Chameleon, who had been left on her bed after her last visit, with a hug and effusive delight to see him again.
We turned out the lights and said our prayers, in which she usually concludes, “And Ganjin has something to say.” This time it was Gecko who was to speak, and in the dimness I could see her hold his little sucky paws together.
Then “he” spoke:
“Dear God, please don’t let there be any spiders in here, cause they eat all my bugs. And just send all of THEM over here to me. Amen.”
