When we first moved in Steve appreciated the craftsmanship exhibited in the staircase. I admired the beauty of the light falling through the stained glass window on to the steps. And I figured we had our very own in-home cardio set up just going up and down the stairs to answer the doorbell, gather mail, etc. In the intervening years the stairs have proven quite the challenge. Now that Steve is back home recovering from a stroke we have to learn to navigate the stairs in a very different way. Our learnings are the same and different. The same learnings are about the body, muscles, tendons, nerves, what has to be strengthened, how long it can take the brain to rewire itself, etc. The different learnings are around trust. As his “assist” down and up the stairs, he has to overcome his anxiety that he might hurt me. I have to learn to trust myself that I know what the hell I’m doing as I give him physical and verbal queues for how to move. Going down I am reminded of a waltz in part. His hand on my shoulder, my hand on his waist and the other prepared to help him sweep that left over close to the wall as we descend in unison. Or mostly in unison … we’re still working on it together. And that is the beauty in this challenge, we are here on this earth and able to work together.

If you haven’t had a chance to view the group exhibit Meditations on Climate Crisis at the honeyjones gallery in Cambridge, MA you still have time. It is a beautifully curated show featuring the works of very talented and passionate artists.

The gallery is an airy yet intimate space and located in a very artsy neighborhood of Cambridge near little antique shops and eateries. One could very well make a nice afternoon of it with friends and family visiting the exhibit and then exploring the neighborhood in its autumn glory.

Closing reception is Sunday November 27th 2-4pm. Hope to see you there!

This area was once filled with pothos that had way overgrown and once upon a time was lush and green but after much unattendance this summer had become gnarly and brown so … I cleaned house so to speak. Many a pothos tendril is sitting in jars of water waiting to root so this area may be pothos-strewn once more but for now light falls upon summer garden herbs and flowers that will hopefully find this to overwinter.

cucumber and red onion pickles

Cleaning up in the garden still … a slow process … and found a bit of thyme that was the perfect excuse to slow down and make some pickles. Not bad. 🙂

On the porch are two pots of sweet basil, two pots of Mexican tarragon, Thai basil, pineapple sage and to fill out the corners and spill over the bannisters, a large pot of magenta petunias and a small pot of ivy. And then there is the evolvolus hybrid or dwarf morning glory. A completely random purchase because the pickings were kind of slim at my Home Depot garden center but I needed to buy something even if it wasn’t edible.

Of late I’ve been pinching the basil and making little caprese salads. They are little containers of summer for Steve as he recuperates. The pineapple sage is flourishing but I can’t think of what to do with it. I see recipes for cocktails but I’m not making any cocktails to go. For now I’ll simply enjoy the green of its large leaves and hope that it might bloom though it is a bit late in the season.

I haven’t completely forsaken the larger garden … some things have bounced back after the recent rains but it is nice to have a tiny discrete spot to work with. Taking care of the plants is a bit like a morning meditation.
