Instructions for living a life.
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.

I love her so much I feel ok calling her “Mare.”

Well..

I am paying attention all right..

Paying attention to my tired skin and psyche as I shift abodes once again.

I am astonished by the friends I have in my life who are here, shoring me up and ‘re-membering’ my phantom limbs which now are adrift in their own orbit it seems.

I am astonished I still have the curiosity and capability to keep waking up and donning my favorite red lipstick as I re-enter the world to see what lights and shadow I see.

Here I am telling you about it..

Telling you the chessboard intrigues me.

And I still got game.
