I don't know what happened. I pinned this together last night, then went to bed with thoughts of wintering and jewel encrusted tree roots.
Today, this sea creature showed up.
The therapist says that it's no surprise that I got lost downtown last week. Heading to the eye doctor. (In my defense, I only go once a year, and businesses change so often these days the usual landmarks were gone.) I went up the street I thought it was on, came back down a different street, didn't see it. Wandered some more. Panicking (I hate to be late), called K for the address (I do not have one of those phones), then proceeded to go half a block (the wrong direction), turned around, a block later realised I was still on the wrong street, went up a block (the wrong direction), went back two blocks to find it, on the first block I had walked down.
All to say . . . I am feeling very compass-less these days. Things are alright. Just strange and unknown. Trying to just be with it, and wondering what's coming next?
