well, i thank you all for your love and comments and encouraging smiles at my angst. i won’t go much longer without a camera…i will receive this as an opportunity to be so grateful for these extras in my life. as one friend told me, i will get another one and if the first camera shows up, i can give one away.
we were incredibly light in our hauling of stuff around and the car was incredibly tidy (unusual…and i miss the hope that clutter can bring that it must be here somewhere!), so i don’t think it is hiding in a bag or under the seat…i wonder if someone is enjoying the oodles of dancing pictures, the image of eliza really close up dowing a coke when she thought no one was looking, the images of me and micah with prairie harvest in the background…him trying to eat a huge ear of corn with 4 (!) missing front teeth…may that someone be hopeful…i really mean it.
and as i write, i am remembering those moments that were colorful and in motion…i am not feeling the exhaustion or the crankiness or the hands on me or the calls of now, now, now.
