i lean back and feel
the warmth of you traveling
from one place to a/
nother.  and i am gone.  home/
bound to where you also live.

Posties about ghosties

Quel horror! The glowsticks all conked out after an hour.  Hoarding of leftover holiday items to the rescue - little battery operated tea lights we purchased for Halloween so the pumpkins wouldn't burn down the house with candles - then Halloween got crazy and we never did carve pumpkins, just let them sit in full vegetable glory on a bench outside.  These work even better.  Look out, late night dog walkers! (Our little skittish dog was thoroughly unimpressed).

Snow ghosties

Have wanted to make snow ghosties after seeing first a Calvin and Hobbes where he made a snow army and secondly, a bit in a book about winter activities for kids where they said put glow sticks in as eyes.  A perfect storm - no pun intended or maybe yes - of snow day and leftover glowsticks from Halloween.  Enlisted youngest son (by means of lobbing snowballs at his window) but he did not share my delight so much...and then we had to shovel out the driveway.

Didn't leave a thing behind you but the miss you blues.
