things lost are revealed
in the dark morning lateness
i can’t keep looking
if I don’t miss it
is it really lost at all,
or just when noticed?
in the absence then
we find what we are seeking
or from that, freedom.
I close the front door
still morning lays all before
lost and found within.
Step out of the house
dim morning cold, snow-dusted
the lost remains lost.
I did find what I’d found lost this morning. Not on the first look (and I did go out to the car and look, but not in the right place, but after I’d given up the search and gone on to plan B. When I got back in the car, there was the “lost” object, in plain view.
I blame the gnomes. I would swear I heard giggling on the other side of the car.
it’s not often I get to say TGIF, but I’m off this weekend and then I have a few weeks of scattered days off… and then some vakay. woot.
When I got home last night, there was something laying in the middle of the porch. When I got closer, I could see it was my pruners, which hang from a hook right by the front door. Yes, that might be a little odd, but like hanging your keys up by the door (inside!) it means I always know where they are and they’re often quite handy.
But how did the pruners end up in the middle of the porch? I have no idea. I can’t imagine that a wind gust would have done that. If they had fallen down, I would have expected the house gnome’s hat to suffer the consequences. Perhaps the gnome did a little pruning somewhere for me LOL.
Last night, I plowed ahead in the Mabinogian a la Walton and just fiddled around in general. The wind was still gusting around but at least the house wasn’t shivering and whistling as it had the night before.
So just a few more hours and I’ll be enjoying some time at home.
Thursday night after work I went down to Palisades Mall in West Nyack with co-workers Dianne, Drew and Steve to see the Hobbit at the midnight launch showing. We met, went to the Apple Store, got a tour, had some dinner and then got in line for the movie. We weren’t there for too long before the theater decided to let us in quite early. So we did, got our posters and found some seats, nicely in the middle.
The movie was great. I love the story of The Hobbit for a lot of reasons and even with the tweaks, I loved the treatment in the movie. The trolls and goblins and orcs were nicely portrayed and of course, the dwarves.
I’m sure I’ll have more to say about this in the future.
Dianne drove back to her house, and we saw quite a number of large shooting stars from the Geminids and chatted all the way back about the movie and work. Then I got in my car and started the last leg of my trip. As I came into Nassau I was feeling a bit hungry and realized I’d been up for about 24 hours, and it was about the time I’d normally be getting up to go to work in this holiday season.
No amount of coffee was going to keep me awake so I stopped at Stewarts and got a cup of coffee, just as I would have on a normal commute. Drove home, fed the cats and got into bed. Everything was strangely in reverse.
Woke up around eleven.
and back again.
And now: To sleep, perchance to Dream;
