The Reluctant Mermaid

one woman unwilling to swim in the same direction as the others


We're going to build a home

We are building a new home-
not out of wood and nails,
paint or drywall-
those things already exist there.
But we'll be building a home,
a new home out of love and
and simplicity.

There is a yard
There is our cat
There is a barn with animals to watch; alpacas, horses, goats, ducks.

There is each other
and a whole lot of space for loving and healing
there is
the luck
of being together
and staying in our community
where we have our friends
our church
our family.

We move in to our new home, our new beginning on September First.
