I've been so miserably busy taking care of my mom who had a rough go of a hip replacement leaving her unable to walk. I so much much forward to the day I can wake up without my mom calling to let me know she pooped.

Anyway, I forgot to send my favorite! But I did enjoy looking at them. One of my favorites is the pigeon flying in front of sculpture at Seaport Village. - Roy Cohen, And, Bodie, by Linda Colins. Is that some old asylum?

My cousin came by the house yesterday and could see how unhappy and tired I looked. Most days are not always that bad. Sometimes I eat a Gummie for anxiety and all my worries about what the fuck I'm going to do with the rest of my life lighten up.

So, my cousin asked me if she took care of my mom at her home for two moms would believe in God.
I said, "YES!" She looked back into my eyes, like in shock, or like she had just been given one of the greatest Christmas gifts ever.
And, asked, "Really!?" I said, "Yes! For two months!"

They all talk like they would do what Jesus would do, but they don't or can't for work reasons. They're like anyone else, it's all conditional.

Kat, thank you for one of my favorite and definitely most honest comments of the entire year! I feel for you and what you are going through but I have a feeling that this is really going to be good for your creative growth for some reason. Pain seems to unlock the truth serum. Best to you.
