Beloved, after a sleepless night due to an achy back, decided not to go to brooklyn today. i can't say i'm disappointed.
my brother's coming thursday - we're meeting him, my sister, and all my nieces and nephews in old sturbridge village which is just over the massachusetts line. i've never been there (they don't let me out much) but i know my mother stopped there on her honeymoon with my stepfather. they took a driving trip through new england, and i remember as a child hearing my mother talk about much she'd like to live here. i think it's sort of funny that both her daughters seem to have roosted here.
i need today to focus and get things done. but first im going back to bed on this soft, rainy gray sunday .... and snuggle with libby.
and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.
