That's the mighty tree which gave up part of itself and I wonder- will it live long enough for a scar to form? For any healing to occur?
Good morning. It is morning in Lloyd and someone is mowing a yard and dogs are barking (these dogs- whose are they and are they new?) and the crickets are tuning up and the roosters are taking turns with their crowing and the squirrels are so busy in the pecans, chewing the nuts and spitting out shells and my ground is littered with the sharp pieces of them.
I had a good cry last night. I cried and cried. I guess we need to do that sometimes, just for the hell of it. I had a good cry and then I started reading a new book and I fell asleep and here we are.
If Mr. Moon was here I'd be making pancakes but he's not so I won't.
I could go to the Waffle House and eat some breakfast there, served by charming young ladies who may or may not be working on a prison-release sort of deal but I think my mind would explode, walking into that room where servers are shouting orders and bacon is sizzling and travelers are sitting and waiting and children may be crying and coffee is endlessly brewing and the steam rises from the waffle makers. I've never eaten a waffle at the Waffle House. Have you?
Now I sort of want some hashbrowns.
Good morning. It's Sunday. I wonder why they don't meet at the Revival Center next door on Sundays, but always on Saturday night. I wonder why they always have talk shows with politicians and pundits on Sunday morning TV. I wonder why humans are so cruel to each other when life is cruel enough just as it is. I wonder why people believe that putting prayers up on Facebook is going to change their lives. I wonder why Facebook exists at all, to be honest. But I also wonder why people believe in god so there you go. The evidence seems thin at best to me.
I just grated two small potatoes that I grew last spring. This is as real as real can be. I planted them in the dirt, they grew, I harvested them, they will be my food.
I guess that's all I have to say now.
