Me Time

Listened to Donna Summer on vinyl and disco danced on a Monday morning. Painted my toenails for the first time in forever. Took an extra long shower and prayed for me, about me. Took my time polishing myself with cocoa butter. Learned a new song. Watched Ghost Dog and Coffee and Cigarettes. Looked through family albums of black and white pictures and picked out my current favourites for a project I have in mind. Searched in my jewellery box for an old pair of earrings that I'd long forgotten about and remembered. Handstitched stuff until my busy hands took me to a place of quiet and far from all my fears and failings. Cooked myself well thought out lunches and didn't feel guilty about wasting time or being indulgent. Lay down on my bed in the middle of the day with my eyes staring up at the ceiling and thought aimless and random thoughts 'just cause'. Met up with a dear friend and exchanged moments of heartbreak and moments of humour and talked about how when we're dead we really want our kids to have some photos of us with them to remember us by. Took pictures of text that made me smile whilst out and about.
