I couldn't get online yesterday. What a relief to find a working internet connection this morning! It's frightening, actually, just how dependent I've become on this online life-line.


How I missed you
your words, the breath
of entanglement

such a spark, painting
these walls in peacock blue
shimmering with golden fish

a gut-deep swirl of fish
flashing down the hall
brought to life by
their own

But if this lovely gem is what comes out of getting re-connected, then I hope your Interwebs stay on!

Love the imagery with the lighting.

I find it very.very.very quiet when the internet goes out. I hate to admit it, but I don't like it one bit.

(So glad you're back!)

Rachel, when I was traveling recently, I MADE myself stay away from Internet connections - two weeks without. I found the withdrawal symptoms getting better as the second week came to a close, but then I came home and saw my laptop! Oh, my! The lure is too strong. Addicts, all...
