well woman

Today I had my well woman exam and physical. The spot where they took blood is bruised and looks like a vampire or a snake bit me. Ouch. I’m sure this next statement is true of most women, but I don’t care for the lady parts exam. It’s so invasive.

I went to work, and it was tough to get motivated, but I forged ahead. I brought work home, but I didn’t make as much of a dent as I wanted to. Han had in a new client but an old friend, Steve Poltz. It was good to see him and hear him play. He left around 7:30 pm. Han & I got Chinese food and watched an episode and a half of the West Wing. Now he’s in bed, and I’m writing this post. Sh-doobie.

today’s draft

Lessons

there is something to be said for simple
easy laughter, a song you like on the radio
a clear sky, a bright orange sunset

on these nights, when it’s quiet
and sleep comes without asking
it’s important to acknowledge

because elsewhere,
or maybe even here tomorrow
it won’t be like this

there’s something to be said for difficult
tough conversations, terrible news on the radio
stormy skies, the darkness of a starless night

on these nights, when it’s too much to take
and sleep is nowhere to be found
it’s important to acknowledge

because elsewhere,
or maybe even here tomorrow
it won’t be like this
