Friday, January 13

wild roamers and friday the thirteenth,

 
So the tree is bending to the tune of whistles, and I am warm beneath dusty white ceilings.  As I was sitting on the tawny couch I call my shore,  I howled for my dogs.  I like how they've learned to sit like a song bird on the couch above carpet. I wanted to play.  But when I howled, I forgot they weren't home, because they're out exploring the weather.


Lately, I've been collecting thoughts of Animals, I suppose in the same way a drifter collects thoughts of home, or a beach turtle collects thoughts of seashells.  I am constantly looking through windows at furry squirrels, black painted birds, and white tailed deers. 

When my eyes aren't on the wild roamers, I watch my own dogs. I watch how they bow, how they bark, how they tilt their little faces when we speak of turkey treats.  I never want to imagine a life without their whispers.  Everyday, when I awake, I can hear them breathing through the halls.  And when their paws befriend my knees, I give them belly rubs. If dogs aren't a ticket for happiness, I don't know what is.


It's Friday the thirteenth, and I'll have you know, the number 13 has always been a symbol of luck for me. When I was a girl, just a babe, I would pen the number on leaflets and corners of paper. Maybe, it's because I was born on December 13, maybe it's because I am silly, but whatever the reason, the number has always been significant for me. When I played basketball, I always needed the number 13 outlining the back of my jersey. In fact, if someone troubled me into wanting the number too, we would quarrel one another. This usually took the form of a shoot out, or a one on one game.  Each time, I won, so I was never without my number.  I give less recognition to skill, and more to luck. If I had been fighting for any other number, maybe I would have lost.  There's something mysterious that drifts through my bones whenever the number 13 exists. 

So now, I'll eat soup, maybe sip a spirit, and allow Friday the thirteenth to ring through the halls.
Have a magical weekend everyone =)

  42. It's not just your fashion statement that intrigues me, it's also your quirky way of smiling. I bet you have a pretty solid following in twitter. You should have full colour business cards to go along with it. Kudos!
