I have been absent from blogging for awhile. I am not sure why. In a sort of frozen state to match the weather. I continue to clear out these two houses, taking things to thrift stores and to the dump. My son recently helped clear out one of two lofts. Difficult for me to do alone as this one has a pull down ladder.
So, one space ready to be swept and checked off the list.
It is all going very slowly.
Mostly I read, watch movies and contemplate my past, and my parents and my brother. My Dad came up strong yesterday as I sorted through some of his scrapbooks and was reminded of the broad spectrum of his interests.
He loved chess and participated in some kind of chess club conducted by mail. He also had a scrap book of photos of the moon he took, he loved photography and developed his own pictures. All this goes in the trash including his camera equipment which is outmoded now. In each of these scrapbooks were yellowed newspaper articles he saved about these two topics: chess and the moon. Just two of his many interests.
I am doing nothing creative. Well, I knit a pair of fingerless gloves out of local Alpaca yarn. I bound up a small sketch book but it remains blank. I am in a poetry group for 6 weeks so must write poems. LOL.
And so it is........hugs, Suki
