miss (+ing)

mitts
Finally finished the mitts for Zach, and a pair for Anne, too. Next: a knitted cushion cover in stripes. But knitting doesn't feel like making to me; it is what I do while I read or watch movies or talk on the phone or listen to music.

I miss being part of the blogging community. Miss reading + commenting, being read, receiving your comments. Miss making; feel like if I cannot make something soon I will explode. Rather. Miss Martha. Miss Sally. Miss Mulysa and Brian. Miss all of all y'all. Miss the way fabric feels in my hands. Also the smell of my city, and the way I can walk all of it without my eyes open. The university. My students. Miss teaching poetry. Miss the smell of the printshop, the print professor's gruff ways, the printmaking grad students. Miss poetry, really. How to do it, this living in the world thing? Because I know when I leave here, it will be the same, only on the other side.

Sounds like times are tough. Things will most certainly get easier if not better but I've never found being told that (or knowing it myself) to be any comfort when I'm in the thick of feeling lonely or off kilter or low. I'm sorry things aren't feeling right. I hope you get to the better side of things soon. Be well.

I'm listening, and reading, and watching your photos.

And what you probably loose track of, is that when you leave France, you'll miss things about France as well - they'll creep up on you and take you by surprise, till you realise back in America that you can't ever live without that certain something of France.
