there are days when i have nothing to write. today is one.
perhaps i could tell you about yesterday. how we went geocaching. how we scourged the earth with a GPS for treasure tucked in tupperware, how we rode bikes and said hello to couples in tweed jackets holding hands in the graveyard, how we ate arrow-roots and swung on swings.
or i could tell you about last night, about the way my stomach moved in the bath-water, my unborn son pushing feet against my flesh, how i thought about all of the ways i couldn’t control a single thing about his life, and how peaceful that made me feel.
and then maybe i could tell you about today, how it uncurled like a slow caterpillar, how aiden and i ate peaches and strawberries on the deck picnic style, how my friend and her daughter sat in my backyard and drank iced tea, how i interviewed two men who make music to a world gone tsunami, how i cried when aiden cried and how we both had a nap. and how evening-come, we walked the town round and i picked pussy willows and we watered my flowers and trent and aiden rolled on the grass.
i could. tell you this. there is no spiritual lesson, only me and a day and God filling in the cracks of it all, and isn’t this all there ever is to say? the way God holds us together, when we have nothing?
