where are we?

water someday
but for now
just a river walk
and the sky
we love to love

bishop's castle

I was here seven years ago for a wedding. Grant was riding in a backpack as we were climbing over, around, and above. At one point, he pushed up on the back bar with his little naked feet and almost toppled us both over the edge! We will go back this summer, and I will let them climb and try not to worry. Jim Bishop deserves this 7:00 of your time.

And please visit Springs Culture Cast for more delectable tidbits of culture in our town.

my grad

Bennett graduated from kindergarten today, amidst sweet songs and sunshine. I wonder what he will remember from this moment. What do you remember from the end of your glory days? I remember matching mother and daughter knitted ponchos, hobby horses in a circle, a cold tile floor, and graham crackers. And already the antagonism of wills and the burden of proof upon my 6-year-old soul for something I knew had little to do with me.
I hope he will remember:

his brother

his first love

his buddies

his mama

congratulations, my little friend!

holy shit

these are some of my new friends:

our grads

futures unknown
this moment
more of the same, perhaps
but with bigger eyes, we hope
and more thirst

if there were....

a wizard who could grant me a brain, a heart, courage, and the way home...... it would be Damien Rice. I hope he plays this song tonight at the Paramount.
