Stretching the Fingers

Day 482

I’m just stretching my fingers out here.  Nothing more.

My system tells me it’s been since April 26th since I wrote.  That span of time is both longer and shorter than I’d have thought.  When I extend my feelings back through the busy mornings, hurried days, and parenting filled evenings the sensation of the start of this dry duration tastes just like my memories of school: certain, but watered down.  The calendar, however, says I’m not two months deep in my shame.

So there you are.

See you tomorrow.
