Catching Up

I know I said we’d meet back here on Tuesday, August 14. It’s mid-September. Geez. How did this happen?

There’s so much I want to write about today—the 40th bday reunion with good college friends, my trek through Harvard Yard, preparing for the role of the hunchback sister in “La Casa de Bernarda Alba,” racing to send out thank you cards before our first anniversary, starting rehearsals for “Bless Me, Última” (I am Última!), the upcoming Alzheimer’s Poetry Project workshop in Seoul (South Korea, baby!), helping P. and K. with homework, needing a yard sale, taking care of business, drinking coffee, doing yoga, the ‘hood, short story ideas, my book, coordinating a New Mexico photo shoot, hiking Tent Rocks, trusting, pruning, killing the plants on my windowsill, getting paid to be myself, the election, Catherine Parra Dix’s new blog, Jesus, mental illness, drogas, boys, the land, this place, what will become of us.

My thoughts are tripping over themselves, racing to reach my fingertips. It’s paralyzing. (Just writing that list took forty-five minutes.) So I have decided to spend the next several days dropping in, writing snapshots, three to five hundred words at a time, until I can once again breathe deeply and settle back in to a weekly routine.

Tomorrow: Snapshot 1—Harvard Yard
