there might be cake
relax isn’t the word exactly.
repose
respite
stretch
long enough for my legs 
long enough to stretch them

saturday morning
stasis, interstice
between here and there

woken with the sound of rain. for some reason a dream about Kevin Bacon, or maybe his daughter (once I thought I saw her at a food truck)

adding some hours to the caregivers’ time this afternoon, pulling at some time not at mom’s. 
as wifeoftj once said, she’s not a burden, she’s my mother.
but our lives are out of balance. out of whack

the week unfolds like Thornton Wilder’s Emily’s silk off a spool.
but not.

this has been all the themes

people are busy here trying to understand what to do 
next
