What a tangled web we weave, huh? Occasionally it's alright to get tangled.
The meme I thought I might tag along behind is simply images of "morning". The ones who posted their links showing their participation in the meme have such lovely pictures and reflections on life or where they presently find themselves. We went camping last week from Thursday to Saturday. Sunday was Father's Day and today Ma Luffin' Mayun hit the road for a five-day camp with hundreds of teenagers. And though, by these factors combined, I find myself once again at a place where far too many clothes, dishes, toys, and shoes are scattered to all the wrong places and anything but clean and tidy, I will choose to see my images of "morning" - exactly this morning - as lovely. They show a life well-lived whether or not it is always superficially well-maintained; the beautiful imperfection of it all. Thank you, 3 from here & there for the idea. Thank you, PostmodernPescatarian for being the "in the flesh" friend reminding me even through simple words on a computer screen that who I am is who I want to be. And thank you God, for this life full of messes.
And now, "Morning" . . .
|My bed that called my name to no avail most of the morning.|
|A kid's-eye view of the living room mayhem|
|Laundry that's been folded since Wednesday|
but not put away.
|Camping stuff that's been sitting in this spot since|
|The view over my sink full of dirty dishes - |
my Korea-dwelling KakiBlack and me fifteen years ago.
|And my favorite: an unexpected note left for us this morning by|
Ma Luffin' Mayun before he left and while we all still slept.
