Trying hard to take care of myself (sleep! food! safe feelings! water!), do my work, and still accomplish some of the little things that make life better. I will do the smart things! And it will work!!! Because!!!!!

Recent good things:

- Porch Cat came down off the porch and sat in my lap for petting!
- Among my impulsive grocery purchases the other day were some organic black olives that turned out to be really really tasty and have raised my bar for what to expect/accept.
- I am rereading "Always Coming Home," by Ursula K. Le Guin, and it is, as always, one of the most remarkable books I have ever read.
- I have a safe bed with soft pillows in a functional apartment. This is worth noting.
- My partner S and I continue to have lots of quiet walks and lots of hugs.
