a ~ I grow old … I grow old …I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

“I have nothing to write about,” I say. “Yeah you do,” answers M. “The new internet.” I loll my head back on the couch to let him know how wrong an answer that is, but he doesn’t notice because he

b ~ I grow old … I grow old… I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

I have been sick for almost two weeks, and it’s getting a bit old. The constant cough, the endless cups of tea, naps that overtake me out of nowhere—I could leave them all behind. Life these past few days has

a ~ At times, indeed, almost ridiculous— Almost, at time, the Fool,

It’s Teacher Training Day and so four boys are in the woods and one boy is in the kitchen. My middle boy, usually found at the heart of whatever whirlwind is happening, has been distracted by multi colored couscous on

b ~ At times, indeed, almost ridiculous— Almost, at time, the Fool,

One weekend, when they both needed a break from studying, Richard drove Subhash to an empty parking lot on campus, teaching him to shift gears so that Subhash could apply for a driver’s license, and borrow the car when he

a ~ Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;

b ~ Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;

I am always running out of time. Every day, every hour, every minute, it seems, I am smashing up against deadlines. Last week, in an attempt to do something nice for myself, I signed up for an online workshop to

a ~ Politic, cautious, and meticulous;

M has been away all week so it’s been up to me to get kids to school, feed animals and make sure the dead chicken is really dead before burying her. Usually that’s a job I’m happy to leave for

a ~ Deferential, glad to be of use,

We returned, last night, from a week in North Carolina visiting family. We got home at midnight, a little past. We were tired. One of us had a fever. The day had been long, and sometimes fraught, but mostly it

To be of use. These words often bump around in my brain and every so often they rise like cream to the top. As a Librarian, it’s second nature to want to help people, to take them to the information
