stairwell accompaniment:Fiona Apple

We are laughing more than expected. Still usually confused as to why this is all so joyful. We live simply. And we are trying harder to live simply so that the others can simply live. We are finding redistribution. And so we try hard. We get messy. We try hard again.
We are driving to friends. And having friends visit. Because we collect the type of friends who commune in extended stay situations with us in our one bedroom apartment. We collect the people who share sleeping bags with us on cold adventures, write us love poems, pick up the phone when we won’t, tell us their things and listen to ours, offer us food and lead us into situations which call for swing! dancing. Our collection is tiny and enormous.
We are reading only as much as we are putting into action. Stopping short of simply soaking or gaining knowledge. Right theology is only as good as right living.
So we change.
We are desiring to be outside. Spread our wings, stretch out legs, fill our lungs. Winter’s heavy weight is slipping off. Slowly. Surely. Slowly. It’s coming.
We are studying. We are sleeping. We are going slower, giving it a second thought, taking another breath.
We are writing a book. Through our black pen and in our lives. Each day another page hoping that when read, will make you laugh, you blush, you cry, you imagine more than you see. We will show you ours.
We are planning dreams and staying in the present. We are dreaming big.
We are learning to do things upside down as we see how rightside up our tendencies are.
So we change.
