michelle is another of my artist friends: a writer, a painter, a used.to.be. singer, amazing cook, actress, giggler and plunger into frigid water-er. she is funny, sarcastic and soulful. i hate that we live provinces away from each other. there are days when i just feel like i 'need' my meesh fix.
we used to
then we finished school and i got married ... to the man they tried for a year, unsuccessfully at first, to set me up with. then i had what i will refer to as my 'dark period' (and i don't mean i dressed goth) and we drifted separate ways, them moving to b.c. and us staying behind.
there are so many stories i could tell; it happens like that when you have known and loved someone for almost twenty years. we finally had a wonderful reunion this past summer, our boys getting along swimmingly, talking, laughing, eating and drinking together like old times. i never wanted it to end.
but they are where they need to be and have recently embarked on the adventure of a lifetime, here, and i truly hope and pray that we have the opportunity to partner with them, somehow, in it.
... i dreamed i saw dali, in a supamakachelli. he was trying to throw his arms around the world
ya, you are.
