soooo yep. i live in the mountains. the catskills to be exact. deeeeep in the catskill mountains. every day i wake up to the sound of rushing streams, pick flowers all day if i want, and go to sleep at night listening to the coyotes singing and howling their surreal lullabies. still uneasy with my new existence, i wake up each day hoping this will be the day i feel at home. but, thats just me. just my way. when i bought and moved into my old green shuttered house years ago, it took a lot of time to settle in. after a dozen years, i was positive i had outgrown that old house, and the place i was from, where i grew up, the infamous land of gods and guns, but, who knows? all i know is i am living my life in transition. that now home is with my boys, and home is whatever and wherever i make it. sometimes i just shake my head in disbelief and awe when i catch up with an old friend who is a married mother, busy in routine, and deep in her life. i work hard to keep the focus soft and fuzzy, and i wear the pink tinted spectacles each and every day. if you build it, they will come. isn't that the old line from the movie? sooo i make the house pretty and build and fix and in general try to dress life up on a daily basis, and dress me too. yes, i wear my mud spattered overalls, but do not think for one quick moment that i have given up my pretty dresses and shoes. nope. i live in marabou city. marabou city. the loveliest hamlet on the mountain, with its blush colored aura peeking over the pine trees, and bathing the black bears in rosy gold light. i might own and use a power drill, but i am not giving up the nail polish. nope. and the tears. they flow. just because i am a girl. i make no apologies for that.
