i can't quite put my finger on why, but i really really like this photo.
remember my year of trust? well, erin at vulnerable pulp is looking for trust this year. i loved seeing her first glimpse of it.
it turns out that ice skating is like riding a bike and also not at all like riding a bike, at least when you haven't skated in ten or so years. as in, you might not fall, but you might not be able to do much more than remain on your feet either. the ice is a slippery place, and those blades are awfully thin.
atlas is getting up at least twice a night for potty breaks lately. it might be just a habit, but i cannot figure out how to change it. sometimes i wonder why i thought i would die of sleep-deprivation if i ever had children. when i think about it, i've been somewhat sleep-deprived ever since i got atlas - over eight years ago - and clearly i'm still functioning. i might not be at peak performance, but i'm definitely functioning.
i stumbled upon a website for someone who creates digital mandalas and i cannot stop watching the mandala movies. watching each mandalas morph and dance and transform is quite possibly the most mesmerizing thing i have ever seen.
how are you? what is going on in your world today?
