dreaming, dreaming

I dwell in possibility-
A fairer house than Prose-
More numerous of windows-
Superior- for doors-

Of Chambers as the Cedars-
Impregnable of eye-
And for an Everlasting Roof
The gambrels of the sky-

Of visitors-the fairest-
For occupation- this-
the spreading wide my narrow hands
to gather Paradise-

Emily Dickinson

This would be the perfect place to sit and read. 
[and possibly finish a 17th century lit paper? maybe?]

It's been frustrating lately, not being in the same place 
[geography wise]
as Greg. 
But looking for pictures, 
I stumbled upon these 
and remembered the times when I took these 
so that he could remember my face
when Greg and I were apart for months at a time. 

Being apart for weeks stinks,
but I'm grateful for the amount of time I do get to spend with him now. 

[and yes, that is our French sock monkey. His name is Jacques.]

off to read [what else is new?], write [God willing],
and drink some tea.
