  • I have taken an indefinite period of time off work. Working is

    overrated anyways.

    I have changed cities, put my old life into bags, into boxes, into storage.

    I am living in a large motor home. My whole childhood I dreamed of

    living in a house on wheels.

    I have the motorhome parked in my sisters back driveway. Far enough

    from the house to feel like a neighbor, close enough to (1) stand for

    ages under the hot water in the upstairs shower (2) drink from the

    overpriced coffee machine (3) get/give hugs from the whole family as

    needed and/or required.

    I get to enjoy the company of: My sister and her husband. Their five

    children (ranging from 15 to 7 years old). Our Dad. Max the dog (he's

    a bit dumb and annoying, but means well) and three cows, several sheep

    and hens. When it's too chaotic I can hide in the bus and write.

    I have been watching Nigella Lawson on TV with my sister, and cooking.

    I made key lime pie. My sister made Fudge brownie, Coffee cake, Ginger

    cake.

    I try to cook as many meals for the family as possible and do house

    work. Yesterday I washed my sisters hair. And when I say hair, I mean

    her wig, because she has cancer.

    It's so important in life to be real about what's really important.

    Not what our society suggests to us is important.
