the concept of two, tools and talk of an injury

four days old now: Scarleht backed into the door of the wood stove boomshika first and has a nice oval slightly larger than a silver dollar burned into her left 'shika-cheek. Over the past few days she has started showing more interest in the hand signs for today, yesterday and tomorrow in association with the pain she is feeling and her memories of the event itself. very interesting. she and lyli also said 'two' today in reference to their socks and appeared to fully understand the difference between one and two of something for close to the first time (other than knowing that there are two of them). Steph brought home a toy shovel and rake so that the ladies may join us working in the garden together tomorrow.

twenty-two months on April 1st, hard for me to believe that almost two years have gone by since my daughters entered this world. i wonder where some parts of me have gone this past span of time's trail. figured out today that when my girls turn 34 months old my father's bookstore will be 34 years old... just another strange coincidental bit of synchronicity to help tell me subliminally that I am on the right path.

Sky, when I see your girls, and in fact, when I see you, I know in my spirit that you are on your path.

I know that you seem to be reaching for some part of you identity that you feel you have lost or let go.... Pardon me for saying so, but I don't think that's the case. I believe that there are perhaps habits and activities that have shifted, but you are Sky.. No doubt in my mind.
