While I was at work yesterday, I received an email from Jeff with the subject line: There’s a lot going on over here.
The email contained these photos, of a project Fern was doing with her 14 yr. old babysitter.
It’s like sandtray.
They managed to incorporate every single one of Fern’s “characters”…her figurines that live in a little basket, many of which are from my childhood. Since she has given a personality to each one, looking at these photos was like watching the blooper reel of a favorite TV series. I had a good long laugh, which helped my day move along in a better trajectory.
Also, this happened before work.
I disappeared from this space over the past week, and for those folks who follow along regularly, I apologize for not being more intentional about taking a break. I think my absence will continue for a little while, because there truly is a lot going on, and it’s requiring all my focus and attention to stay strapped in my seat. Life just became the emotional equivalent of a bucking bronco, and falling off is not an option. I’ll be less cryptic later, I promise. I’m going to have stories I’ll need to tell.
For now, I’ll leave you with one of Fern’s favorite songs du jour.
Do listen all the way to the end if you’ve never heard this before. It’s hilarious.
Love to all!
