*Sometimes Running Madly


“Life was not to be sitting in hot amorphic leisure in my backyard idly writing or not writing, as the spirit moved me. It was, instead, running madly, in a crowded schedule, in a squirrel cage of busy people. Working, living, dancing, dreaming, talking, kissing—singing, laughing, learning.”

– Sylvia Plath

    thanks for the sweet shot of one of your fat, sleek, almond-fetching squirrels!


  2. well, yeah – ok, i’m confused – didn’t you toss almonds to them? and didn’t THEY eat them?
