Got my internet up today. House is unpacked to the point where it is no longer insane, but merely messy. We are discovering mystery items that none of us remember buying. Also I have misplaced my Kindle. I hope it will roll to the surface soon.

I am going to sit to write tonight. The last ten days are the longest I have gone without writing in years.

Here are some pictures from inside the house. I am showing you walls instead of floors. The floors are passable now, but strewn with stuff.

Desk area here

I'm so glad you are in and getting settled and back online. And look! There's Gabriel Bray with you still :) And I recognise a few other things there too. You must be itching to write again after so many days. Enjoy the words when they come.

And there is a picture that I keep with me because it looks like a younger Archie. And, as you say, a few other things.

The one in the frame is a print out of 'Adieu farewell earth's bliss' by Thomas Nashe. It is also called 'A litany in time of plague. I keep it to remind me of Kit. It is a clear bit of poetry-- shiveringly dark, alien, with that strange feeling of close/not close, that the early moderns bring.

'This world uncertain is--' then, as now.

The navyboy shaving picture! <3 <3 <3

Looks so much like my son. I love the way that his hair is put up, all untidy and spilling down his back. And he is making one of those weird shaving faces.

I still want to meet up, sometime soon. I realize I missed you this time around. Let's make a plan.

Indeed, things happened so I couldn't visit this time around - our timing was very tight on Saturday due to Milo having a job as a birthday party performer in the early afternoon, and then another party on Sunday.

Let me get back to you after Thursday. Things are highly unsettled & my next challenge is trying to get my psych meds prescribed again.

Sure that sounds fine. I am over the worst of stuff going on, but you have a lot coming up, I know.

An interesting tableau! I like the little Pyrex bowl and spoon! Pistachio pudding??

The postcard of an Irish homestead caught my eye, too.

The pyrex bowl is probably cheesecake, or maybe ice cream. We are eating a lot of of quick and easy things right now. I am getting used to my new, very small, kitchen. I like my new sink and stove better than the previous ones, but whoever installed my counters is a sadist. No counter space at all!

The little house picture is from Scotland. Anteros sent it to me, I love how serene and clear it looks, so different from the place I live.

If it were me doing the packing, I would have placed the kindle in a place with lots of 'cushioning', like in the middle of a stack of towels in a box. Don't know if that helps you at all, but you may be able to recall your thinking when you were packing.

When we go away for a weekend (like our Bed and Breakfast weekend just ended) I put my ipad in the middle of the suitcase with clothing above and below and all around the sides, so no breakage is likely, even if the suitcase is dropped!

The frustrating thing is that I did not loose it in packing. I had it after arriving here. It is somewhere loose in the house. And the house is very small. You would think that would make it easier to find. But no, actually it is like a horrible gamew of Jenga, everything I move has to go on top of something else. I know if I am patient it will turn up, but I read the thing every day. It has like 400 books on it. I am very attached to it. It is in its padded cover-- well protected-- just hidden from view. Gaahh!!

How swiftly it is beginning to look a home but yes, that well known stage where everything is almost right but not quite there - is always a time when stuff goes unaccountably missing and you KNOW it is there but its just somewhere that little bit mysterious ...
