in texas with a cousin for a few days. will head to mom's in mississippi this week now that all the water is out of her house. bought a 99' explorer with a loan against my retirement fund. at this rate, i just can't think retirement security. not much on SUV's but when they serve as temporary homes...hey, you take it.
i went back into the city last monday to see if i could find my boat. gone....gone. she is gone and i just don't get it. i found most of the boats on my pier up in the parking lot. i spent 3 hours walking the marina and hayne. if she were under surely i would see something of her poking out of the water.... just vanished.
the first few days after rescue i felt grateful to be alive. now i feel a little guilty because i am sad for losing everything i own.

nonattachment, i keep telling myself. nonattachment.

after we were rescued we had to go into a shelter just to get some shoes. the whole thing has been very, very humbling.

and i am grateful for the kindness of strangers, and near strangers.

chin up....chin up....

So many of us (whom you don't even know) care about you, worry about you, and pray with you. I hope our caring prayers bring you some comfort and good fortune in the days ahead. You have lots of "invisible" support.

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
