☼ ▬

In Dudley, North Carolina at the old house on Pine Tree Lane where I used to spend the summers with my dad. It’s getting close to nighttime. I hear my dad start up his truck out front. I run around the corner in my brown house slippers tromping through the mulch and flowerbed trying to catch up to him but he’s already driving up the hill without me. I run up the hill after him. For some reason there’s a big black gorilla. I communicate to the gorilla with hand signals that I want to get on his back and ride him like a horse. At first he seems suspicious but eventually I hop on his back and off we go up the hill while he hoots and hollers...

“Oo! Ah! Ah!”

Waking up at 12:28 p.m. lying next to Ana.

Steel Cut Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Raisins, Maple Syrup, and Kefir. Black Tea.

Taking care of business.

Scrambled Eggs. Naan Bread with Non-Dairy Cream Cheese. Potato Chips with Avocado. Pu-erh Tea.

Teaching all my in-home lessons.

Honey Crisp Apple.

Making dinner with Ana: Tempeh with Beet Greens, Onions, and Golden Beet Soup.
Watching a Miyazaki film while we eat.

Ana bakes some kind of cookies with almond flour. We top them off with leftover chocolate frosting.

I start jamming on the electric guitar unplugged – Ana slaps the bass – coming up with a new tune.

Ana and I lie down in my bed and finish the Miyazaki movie. Meanwhile, the snow falls consistently outside.

Cuddling up next to each other and enjoying the comfort of being safe inside from the snow storm a brewing just outside the window. Sexy time.

Sleep 3 a.m.
