Poem for Saturday and Visiting Family


I'm nobody! Who are you?
By Emily Dickinson

I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you – Nobody – too?
Then there’s a pair of us!
Don’t tell! they'd advertise – you know!

How dreary – to be – Somebody!
How public – like a Frog –
To tell one's name – the livelong June –
To an admiring Bog!

--------

Daniel is home! And Adam had a great first week of his internship and got straight As! And Paul accepted a job -- this was his third offer but the one he felt best fit his interests and skills (he turned down one that was a good job but in a government agency that Trump has made noises about abolishing, and it just does not seem like a good time to become a federal employee). So other than my spine still being a literal pain in the ass, things are good!

Most of our early day was chores -- laundry, shopping for cat litter, a stop in Michael's for a piece to fix a bracelet -- plus a long phone conversation with Noelle. Adam's girlfriend Christine came over in the afternoon, hung out for a while, and came with us to pick Adam up from work, after which we went to my parents' for dinner, then left to go to the airport to retrieve Daniel!
