She cut my face for her cookies
apologized
but she needn't have

dough enough for a galaxy
of sugar painted stars
left the outline of heaven
and some tasty crumbs

William Michaelian said...

Nice of you, Deb! I’m glad you survived Stephen’s ordeal. I hope he didn’t contribute too much to your insomnia.... A little, well, that’s okay.....

For the record, here’s a comment that landed in my inbox last night, but still hasn’t appeared in the comment section. It’s from Stickup Artist, whose work is as inspiring and thought-provoking as ever:

“Now this is what I love. I am both delighted and fascinated by the fact that scientists of many different disciplines tell us that everything, including we humans, are made out of stardust. And you have illustrated this miracle!”


Also for the record, here is the pertinent part of my reply from our behind-the-scenes email exchange earlier this morning:

“Stardust — I've been thinking of that lately, and how in light of it our quest for immortality is a bit silly, since we are immortal as it is, although perhaps not as humans....”

This is great! I'm glad you shared your behind the scenes email. It helped lift my spirits after coming home from a very "Stephen" day at work today. I don't mean Stephen's job situation but rather what goes on in Stephens mind and how similar that is to my own mind, both the horrible and the wonderful!I guess the migraine could have contributed to it, or maybe just menopause. Does that mean guys get that too? Don't worry its not a cut down, I actually consider menopause as a kind of rite of passage. Maybe in light of your email with Stick up Artist, its a rite of passage for the entire human species! Kind of like the little lizard that gets eaten by the hawk in order to see the bigger picture from the hawk's view, death, birth, death, birth, evolve...

In fact, on my lucky days, I remember how to think like a rock. No cut-down at all, Deb, I know just what you’re saying. And I’m glad you say it.
