Five minutes

  • Reverb10 prompt # 15 (Patti Digh): Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010. Many of the things I'd want to remember have to do with my beloved Man: how he looks at me, how he smells, my back against his belly falling asleep, his willingness to deal with and often enjoy my animals (he wasn't raised with animals around), how giggly we can be, how he is happy to help me with things, how we are good at taking vacations together, how proud I am of his work, cooking and eating together. Then my own personal happinesses: happy dog, cat and horse. Discovering that the capacities of my body, while limited, can be improved. More or less being able to arrange my life as I wish. Sitting around laughing with friends and coffee. Learning and growing. (Really.) Being happy, actually; knowing how that feels. Awesome, awesome, awesome. Thank you!
