March 9, 2012

we discussed bill's book last night. eaarth. the discussion was a little flat frankly. i stuck to the reviews and the pre-printed questions. it felt programmed. it fell heavy.

none of us liked the book much. k insists nature is so resilient it will all work out. she grew up in cleveland..near those rivers that were always catching fire. they're cleaned up now. and lake erie, once pronounced dead, is looking pretty alive these days.

nevermind all that. here's what helped me.

k had arrived early. was out walking the 100,000 acre natural property where we always meet. she was all alone at the far end when it began to rain. a real downpour. she was drenched by the time she made it back for our potluck. since it was an all girl night we convinced her to take her soaked clothes off. kr found a spare shirt for her to put on. i had a warm hand towel covering the dish i'd brought. she donned the dry shirt and sat on the warm towel for our dinner/discussion but she walked around setting up and cleaning up in her underpants.

then before we left we all took a minute to smooth our hands over kr's protuding tummy, filled with 32 weeks of baby in there. so tight and round and lovely, we can't keep our hands off, or our lips from sneaking near, talking to that unseen, already adored baby, right thru that thin layer of skin, hey, baby! we love you! we can't wait to see you! we coo.

i hope k is right.

oh. one other really big thing. keystone xl got voted down again right before our meeting. the vote was close. only a 4 vote difference. close, but i'll take it. any time the people win one over oil soaked washington, it's a good day for the planet.
