oasis

Maybe I shouldn’t be writing this, still so much to do in time for our Yule trip, and our move. In addition, Echo got chicken pox over the weekend, and a particular co-parent has switched into non-cooperative mode. There is a lot on our plate right now, but to tell you the truth, I miss coming here. On the walk home today I realized I am less in touch with how I feel when I am not actively authoring a blog about feelings.

We went to Kris‘ house today. What a haven of yumminess. It feels so good there. I was remembering that just after Echo was born, I timidly ventured the six blocks to Kris’ house, holding my precious cargo and protecting her from the big wide world. It seemed to take forever to get there but when we did it was like I had crossed a desert and made it to an oasis. Kris feels that safe and nurturing.

Our mouths could not keep up with the thoughts and ideas we have been itching to share with each other, trying to squeeze in epic conversations between reading to children and wiping up pee accidents. It isn’t easy!

There is no point to this post other than to say, what a woman. When Echo and I left Kris’ house today I felt immediately very lonely, because it feels very not alone to be with her.

    It is such a gift to have a friend who feels like an oasis.
