In the midst of the blur...

Some days I feel like life comes at me at warped speed

....all I can do is hang on

I drive my oldest to school
 2 hours everyday

past farm land
wheat fields
 thru the woods
in snow
 on ice
sunshine and rain.

a Sophomore in High school
it was just yesterday he sat on my lap and I read him Good Night Moon.

Now we have conversations at 70 miles an hour....

My father has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's
3 years in the making I knew something was really one believed me.

He is moving to Montana
next Tuesday.

Never had time for me
 business first

now he will be here
though I no longer know him

Aware of the difficult road ahead

It doesn't matter
change can be good
maybe a new relationship
can be found?

In the midst of the blur
I know it all will be okay.
 because it's all
I am strong

...and that feels wonderful

I come home
behind the mountains...the sun is waking up

...and Mimi is wondering where I went.


In the midst of the blur...


  1. I hope today your father settles in as well as he can. xx

  2. Peace in what lies ahead for you and your dad. I suspect the same thing with my mom. No one believes me... Love your yarns, by the way. Smitten, trying to figure out what to love most. Wow, so many wonderful skeins.


May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.
