awash


packing
swimming
knitting
drinking

swimming
driving about
forgetting things
calming children

special dinners
organising
swimming
imagining the future

taking photos
agonising
visiting places
remembering

and very occasionally wearing something nice made by me like this refashioned linen shirt and these pants.


We're all awash at the moment, floating about with our belongings and our thoughts and fears and hopes and excitement and to do lists and endless apologies for the things we are forgetting and letting slip. We are counting down the days and trying to get every last swim and sight and laugh in before this adventure is really over.

floating about takes a great amount of balance; good for you all if you're keeping your craft afloat! :)
