the smell of my desperation has become a stench


This is Kenzie’s baby napping on Saturday afternoon. There is something so zen about this, so free from the conflict of every day life that the act of looking at it calms me down.

It will be gone tomorrow and the next thing you know she’s going to be four and trying to spit her apple juice into the dog’s mouth.
