5 Minute Freewrite--Sloppy
I feel sad to hear of @wonderwop passing. Brendan just started to say something to me. I feel like crying. I feel sad about death in general, but most especially when it feels too soon. I wasn't so sad when my grandmother passed away. Maybe if she had been a bigger part of my life, I would have been. But she was 97, I think, or 96, but I think 97, and that feels like a grand age to live to. I am tired. I feel like I have too many things to do, and too many things that need to be done that I don't want to do. I don't know what I want, exactly, except that I do know I want it to be easier to walk to a river that is lined with rocks and mud, not concrete. We used to live in Sultan, WA, and there was a river within walking distance. I was pretty young when we lived there, so I don't really remember walking there often, but I have this sense that it was within walking distance. I have a bit of a map of Sultan in my head that I'm not at all sure is accurate, but in it, the river is just a short walk to the south and west of where our home was. I wonder if that's true. Anyway, I'd like to walk there and take off my socks and shoes and stand in the water.
