You can't have it all, but there is this

My latest aphorisms:

The ugliest smoothies are often the most delicious
A dog pees on your leg, seven years of good luck

Related: a tall, friendly hound dog named Baxter peed on my leg this morning. I also made a smoothie that came out a sickly avocado green (almond milk, half a banana, frozen blueberries and peaches, matcha, a handful of baby spinach, a spoonful of almond butter). It was so good.

I can't stop thinking about Nomadland. I truly can't recommend it highly enough! 

And that thing that's kept me going through the endless month of JanuFebruary has happened at last: one of my two favorite brothers* bought a condo in Portland!!

Sneak peek!

I am beside myself with excitement about this and now have to patiently wait out the rest of our pre-vaccine life until Adam and Jeannette come to set up their (part time, for now) household here, a 15 minute walk from my house! 

*now to scheme a way to get the other favorite brother here

The geography
of solitude and freedom:
almost lost, but not.

*One of the best movies I've seen in a long time, although I'm biased because Frances McDormand

Thank God it's Allegedly Friday

One of those weeks when a highlight was attending a community Zoom meeting about a parking garage. 

I just remembered part of a dream last night where someone was getting ready to take my photograph but first needed to "rearrange" parts of my face, opening one of my eyes a little wider, moving my mouth down a bit, etc.

I feel seen.
