long time passing

i haven't had much time nor much motivation to write lately. seems notcrazy, my son, is posting more than i am and convincing his readers that his mother is truly certifiable, backing it up with strange pics of his mother. if only i had known i was being set up!
i've been swamped with work these days. obviously, i didn't go to iraq. humanitarian teams are having trouble getting in anyway and are holed up in hotels in jordon and kuwait. not my idea of fun. so i have become hyperfocused on my current work, working 70 hour weeks without a break.
anyway, i am going to try and take a break and go to the party this weekend and am surely taking sunday off....i'm a flag bearer in the easter parade.
i am discovering that i think part of my crazy work schedule is fear of slowing down. when i do slow down my thoughts drift back to Chris and it saddens me. i've started wondering how differently it would be if someone else had taken his life.....instead of it being his choice and his act. not that it would be easier, but it would be different.
once again, i am going to try and start posting more often!

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.
