My Brain Holds But A Tiny Fragment Of Knowledge

The walk was so hard today. It's feeling more like summer with the heat and the humidity. My eyes itch with whatever is blooming right now that I'm allergic to, my brain is itching with what I dreamed last night, dreams not so opaque in meaning that I am not fully aware of their messages and meaning. They represent things I am worried about but which I push down during the day, feeling inadequate to the task of actually dealing with them.

Then again, there was that one dream about being caught up in international terrorism that I'm a little hazy on.

Baby chick's toes seem to be curling again and I do not know whether to reapply the bandage I took off last night or give it a chance to bear weight on the foot. As in all things, experience comes hard and just when you think you know a bit about something, you find you really don't. Child-raising, chicken-raising, gardening, relationships, cooking...there is no end to the learning.

I am feeling particularly ignorant today about all things and I believe I may go to a Goodwill and just get lost in the meditative state of going through racks, one thing after another and eavesdrop on conversations which in no way involve me and yet, are somehow, sometimes fascinating.

It takes so little to amuse me.

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. Every time I come in from The Great Wide Open which is every day, I wash my hands then wet a washcloth with warm water and gently wipe my eyelids off. It seems to help keep the pollen at bay. For me it's trees and grass every spring then at the end of every summer. I think your brain holds a lot more than a tiny bit. I come here first thing in the morning to learn from you.

  2. It is a good thing to be amused easily and take joy in the everyday things . I love this about you Mer xxxx

  3. Well, you know I have no clue at all, but I think if the bandage was working I'd put it back on and let it strengthen up with the support, and grow right for a while longer.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
