Chapter one: Coffee spills and Cuckoo clocks . I was sitting in my office, when I heard a knock at my door. Standing in my doorway was my old friend, Maria May Margaret[we call her M&m's]. Now, when I say"old friend", I don't mean I've known her a long time. I call her "old friend" because she's an elderly old women. And by old, I mean really old. I had met her when my little niece Alison and I were going to visit our Gran. black environmental hybrid car in her (Gran's, not Alison's) driveway, I noticed another car parked near her house. It was a beat-up, grey-blue jalopy, and by the looks of it, it was pretty old and worn-down. "Probably one of Gran's friends from knitting", I thought to myself. But that's only because at work, no one came to report any crimes. Eventually, I just called my five-year-old niece Alison and took her to Gran's house for tea. Besides, Gran makes really good banana bread, and I was really hungry. So I guess Gran had invited her over for tea and to chat. Not saying that she is one. Her red lipstick[which matched her nails and dress]was smeared, and her red velvet, ankle length dress had almost as many wrinkles as she had on her face. She looked like she had just woken up, realized she was late for work, and hurriedly got dressed.
some of you may have been able to tell that i was a little bit down last week- lemme tell you that things have definitely turned around. Patience is important in our afflictions- life isnt meant to be easy. They are amazing talks that helped me this week. Its ok to feel down- its normal, and everyone goes through it. especially in the mission field. But patience in adversity is the most important thing- and knowing that you are learning something beneficial and the Lord will deliver you. Now to talk about this week. our alarm clock was in panga (when someone tries to do something good but really is doing omething bad) and literally forgot the time, so we woke up at 7 and were still preparing when they got there at 8. it wasnt too bad though. They told me that I speak for good spanish for the time that I have, and even have better pronunciation than a lot of the other gringos with more time than me. This was one of those bad days where all our appointments fell through- we decided to... We are going to have family home evenings every night in members homes and they are supposed to invite friends and we bring an investigator- also, we are going to have free english classes Wednesday. I had to wake up at 330. my comp knows I like to exercise so he made a joke that we should have woken up at 230 so we could have exercise time.
She was walking down the road toward the beach and I was walking up the road. Robertson's beautiful, fine press book, Letters to Julia: 1898-1899 is set there, as are my books Eva of the Farm and After the River the Sun. The idea of “home” makes me think of place. It is place that makes me feel alive, that rings and resonates in my work. Place provides me with vocabulary, with narratives, with inspiration for image-making. they bring people, incidents, and places of the past into the present. I don’t consider “place” to reference only outer landscapes. I have written about “the places of goodbye,” as well as spiritual journeys: “Walking the Edge of Heaven. In the essay “The Art of Finding” poet Linda Gregg recalls the landscape of her youth and writes “The elements of that bright world are in my poetry now…They are present as essences. They operate invisibly as energy, equivalents, touchstones, amulets, buried seed, repositories, and catalysts…” She refers to this recalled landscape as her own “resonant sources. As I reflect on the landscapes that continue to be present as “essences” in my work, I think of San Diego, where I was born and lived for the first 20 plus years of my life. I think also of the shrub-steppe eastern slopes of the North Cascades in Washington state—a remarkable place I called home for nearly 30 years.
