home again

time keeps slipping away from me, like water. so many little images.

like the geckos in belize, turnip tails and little brown escorpión, silent on the walls in the dense hot evening.

and the weird calls of the montezuma oropendola over the grand plaza at tikal, early in the morning cloudlight.

or the little blushing peaches stacked on a board on the back of a pedicab in beijing, city of smog and roses.

i've been to new places and done things i'd never done before. now it is time to return to the much more difficult business of daily living, tea in the morning, laundry on the drying rack, one foot in front of the other in front of the next one.
