I am not having anything so organized or work-free as a vacation, but I have had a very nice couple of days. It is important for me to note them. Saturday after rehearsal I spent hanging out with some people who may become new friends; it was the most socializing I've done in months and it was great. Sunday I mostly curled up with cats and movies and wrote. I made the last of the kelp noodles for dinner with tomato sauce and sardines. Last night's gorgeous snowfull had mostly been shoveled aside into piles of overcast slush by the time I got up, but it drifted thickly onto the telephone wires and our neighbors' overeager motion-activated light did not go off once. I still feel not very present; I would like to be sleeping more and not having repetitive nightmares, but I like the color of the sky right now, dove-blue streaked under the clouds with grey and rose-gold. Last week was a lot of doctor's appointments. It is my intention that this week involve more variety.
