Around here, I got my first straight-up "Mom, you're crazy" from my 10-year-old, who did not raise his eyes from Tron: Evolution for this milestone. I'm a little surprised that it took ten years.
Around here, I consider putting clean sheets on a bunk bed an Olympic event. No offense, Ryan Lochte, it's very athletic.
Around here, I am feeling quite full of energy, the very soul of possibility, very Onward. Unafraid to use words not in the way they were intended. It's my favorite part of my mood cycle. (I have always assumed that the mood cycle would flatten out - at least a little - as I got older. It has not. I thought I would have mellowed considerably by now. I have not. If anything, I'm still myself, but more so.)

I read The Great Gatsby on an airplane recently and I was captivated. I wanted to start reading it again as soon as I finished. Did you read it in high school? I did - I wasn't ready for it then, but this time! Beautiful and amazing! Now, obsessed with Gatsby imagery, new and old. Obsessed with F. Scott and Zelda. Kind of can't wait for the Baz Luhrmann movie - and kind of dreading it. Do you know what I mean?
Did you know there was a TV movie with Mira Sorvino as Daisy?
That beautiful scripty image at the top is by Kelly Cummings. I'm in love with it.

Sitting to my left
is a woman with Chinese
takeout having lunch.
their lives, though there are degrees
Clearly, there's more to
this sequester business than
I have understood.
From Times Haiku. Which you will love, if you love accidental haiku. As I do.

Also, I'm ready to admit that I have, in no way, passed on the baseball-love gene to my kids. Up until now, I thought they might grow into it. But, they can't make it to the seventh inning stretch no matter how many churros and ice cream bars they eat. It's so confusing.
Still - strawberry jam and baseball? Is it hot in here? (Must be summer mom.)

There's nothing better than someone else's vacation photos, right? So here's the fifty or so that I took with my phone - I wouldn't dream of forcing you to enjoy the rest.....
Amsterdam! Canals! Art! Tulips! Beer! Diamond cutters! Windmills! Sex workers and hookahs! I wear the same coat and boots every day for a week! Plus - the ice sheet from the plane on the way home.....
