anyone hear natalie merchant singing?
i used to write stories here
and then i was pregnant, and then i had pearl
and now i have seven children to love,
teach and about all i do on here now is post
little bits and thoughts i have and
i'm sorry if you have been here with me from the beginning,
and you are wondering where my writing went and
what the heck happened,
but i think i am okay with this,
this being at a loss for deep thought and the words to express it,
for story telling and
painting pictures with words.
and there is a season,
and this season
is simple and
simple words and pictures best express who i am
some days pearl sleeps and i put her down to spend some time
snuggling with and reading to little ones
sometimes i even steal a moment to knit.
but somedays she sleeps and i just
watch her because i know
these newborn days are fleeting and
soon she will be crawling,
running with her brothers and sisters and
i just want to
drink in each moment.
these are simple days and
simple words and pictures are
all what i have to give
