In my dreams

Last night I dreamed of melting plastic.

"You can't reach my age without learning a few things. I know by long and bitter experience that it's almost impossible to keep two bars of soap in the same soap dish. There must be something else, but it doesn't come to mind."

I like that

I like that I can wake up in the middle of the night and play online Scrabble if I want to. I like that I can go to dinner with my ex-husband and our child, then stop at a chocolate shop for treats. I like being able to cook a meal, order take-out, or eat nothing at all. I like clicking my mouse, washing dishes without gloves, and wearing my hair up. I like writing a book, and I like facebook. I like that I no longer doubt the importance of the role I play in my daughter's life. I like that my body is at ease, and my breath is not held, and I like that the only surprises occurring these days are the ones that feel good. I like that I'm surrounded by people with strong minds and gentle hearts, and I like that this is the only reality in which I will ever live again. I like that when the day comes to chose someone to walk beside, I know I'll chose a man who speaks my language; who is imperfect, but whose life will meld with mine. I like that I'm certain he won't be in disguise the way he's been so many times before, because for the first time, my eyes are wide open... and I like that; I like that most of all.

Phone pas

When I woke up this morning, I checked the weather on my Droid and it said 70 degrees! I was perplexed, excited, delirious, in fact; I couldn't wait to go outside! Then I noticed the displayed city on the screen. For some reason my Droid thought it was in Cupertino, California.
