Time change is fucking me up, of course. Woke up this
morning at 2 a.m, formerly 1 a.m. and yet, if normally when I have trouble
sleeping I wake up at 3 a.m which would be 4 a.m., right? Oh well, I wrote a
bunch of confessional and silly social media posts and ended up falling back to
sleep around 5:30 a.m. I’m here now, somewhere between the old and new times.
It’s harder to adjust with aging. To pretty much everything, they say.
Charles and I are working on Experiment-O this weekend. I
start working on that in the summer, inviting contributors and doing a basic
layout by the fall, then Charles comes in and pretties it up.
My attention span is short this morning. We’re waiting
for the groceries to arrive.
Sarah Bodman’s Book

beguilng book sculptures? Fairy tales with strong women characters? I’m there.

The groceries came. No laundry this weekend.
I’m in love with November light and I have a lifelong
love affair with trees. I leave you with some photos from last week’s walk to
Strathcona Park, Sandy Hill and Lowertown.
Ottawa, you’re lovely in the autumn.
I urge you to get out there and bathe yourself in that
golden light if you can. I feel so much better. Actually I’m feeling good these
days. I am 12 years past my expiry date and no longer rotten.
