Surgery

Fall                                                                                Harvest Moon Quick note. Bleeding continues. Failed attempt last night to stop the bleeding with an embolization procedure. So. Surgery this morning, a bowel resection. I’m heading in right now. 6:30 a.m. Went in last night, got back about 11:00. This is what Kate wants. She does not want a repeat of Thursday night/Friday […]

Progress!

Fall                                                                          Harvest Moon So. A source of the bleed, diverticulitis. Probably multiple episodes over the years. Good news. To come home she still has to get her hemoglobin up and may have a surgical procedure related to the diverticuli and maybe the gall bladder. Not home tonight or tomorrow night, if surgery, then longer yet. […]

Kate News

Fall                                                                                 Harvest Moon Yesterday was tough. Kate’s still losing blood. She spent most of the day yesterday, from about 6:30 am to 2:30, in the E.R. They’re short of beds and wanted to see which department was the best for her. No word yet on the cause of the bleeding. G.I. doc ordered a colonoscopy […]

E.R.

Fall                                                                                 Harvest Moon Took Kate into the E.R. this morning. Unexplained blood loss, enough to make her woozy. May have exceeded the speed limit occasionally. When she got there, a good team took care of her and her color brightened. Nobody seems especially worried. Something to deal with. She’ll be in the hospital at least […]

I want to be: an Olympic gymnast, a music producer, winner of LeMans

Fall                                                                   Harvest Moon The waning gibbous harvest moon hangs over Black Mountain this morning. A blue, blue sky contrasted by green and gold at the mountain’s peak. Night time temperatures have fallen below 40 so there’s a distinct chill in the air. Still little precipitation, signs pointing to high fire danger, very high on one […]

Palletable

Fall                                                                      Harvest Moon A full day without nausea yesterday. A glimmer of what can yet be. Kate in Kate mode. Maybe a little slower, but still off to Trader Joe’s for figs, getting stuff done around the house. Good to see. We have a problem. The space between the house and the garage. Fine during […]

Sukkot, 2018

Fall                                                               Harvest Moon The sukkah went up last Thursday. Sukkot, a seven day harvest festival that began on the 23rd, Sunday, commemorates the temporary structures built during the exodus. The Tabernacle, a moveable temple with the ark of the covenant in its holy of holies, was the main religious structure during the long trek from […]

Mostly Musical

Fall                                                                         Harvest Moon Wow. Had a lot on my mind yesterday. Sorry about the length. More yet, too. Anyhow. Met with Tara yesterday. Director of Education at Beth Evergreen. I said, Help. She gave me lots of ideas on classroom management, help. She’s delightful. Bright. Straightforward. Open. An example. How you arrange the classroom is […]

Reconstruct, Reimagine

Fall                                                                                 Harvest Moon Circling the question of faith, reimagining it, reconstructing it. A project that now seems life long. One that has the character of silly putty, picking up whatever I apply it to. My initial and continuing fascination with the idea comes from a sense of restriction that I feel within the religions that […]

Back of the Vehicle Semiotics: A Continuing Search

Fall                                                                            Harvest Moon A Subaru yesterday with three bumper stickers: Be Kind. Hiker. And, “Not a Native, but I got here as fast as I could.” printed on the familiar green with white mountains bumper sticker that often announces so-called Native Coloradans.
