  • Boaz the acupuncturist says you should come more often, I am terrified, should I, I wonder if it's true. My nervous system is close to wreck warp speed. I pick up Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis PERRENIAL (TENDER) FULL SUN seeds to plant nearby and a can of peas for good shepherd's pie. I speak with my father about changing jobs. I speak with my husband about going up to the lake in August. Take the little boy to the library to play shooting games and play with his friend Christian. The new obsession might be the Titanic. Come home, get home. Drink cold water. Make rich tea. & go on into the present, it is sacred, beneficial and taut like the first time.
