Pie and Flowers

I know this has to be the most boring blahg in the history of blogs, but hey, life must go on, and it’s not all profound.  Much of it is just getting through a day without blowing it too badly or resigning yourself to mediocrity.  I know I’ll never be a genius, but honestly, I learn something new or different each day, which is more than I can say for many folks down at this level.

I have a lot of thoughts swirling through my head, but I’m not even going to attempt to articulate them.  So if instead I post pictures of, say, this really delicious savory pie E bakes now and then, 

or this pretty tuberous begonia I got today,

it doesn’t mean I’m a vegetable-brain, it just signifies my attempt to find innocuous normalcy and beauty in the midst of an insane, undependable world with an unsure future.  What else is there, sometimes?  “When the world is running down, you make the best of what’s still around.”  (The Police.)

The good news is, we’re one day closer to finding a home.  I’m resolving here and now to be content with and thankful for wherever we end up, which will still be far better than much of the world has it.  Next I resolve to try to turn my little corner of the world into a safe haven, and leave it better than I found it.  Finally, I’m going to try to leave whining and discontent behind as we shut the door on this hapless chapter, and start a new life with a clean slate.  That’s my aim, anyway.
