breadcrumbs

Waking dreams, hmmmm… Nicole made a lovely post about naming daughters that reminds me of my own naming dilemma before Joy was born.

I remember being in a car, in the dark, following the curve downhill and over the railroad tracks and thinking Gretl would be a good name.  Thinking it was strange that I never liked the name Gretl before.  And in the song For Emily Whenever I May Find Her, I changed the smoky burgundy to crinkly lavendar, as I walked on…

Waking up this morning I saw an unending trail of ultra violet breadcrumbs.

  2. Hi Celeste,
    I think you may have me mixed up. I’m not the Fuzzy Rat Mother of Adoption Animal House. I’ve previously blogged as Being Me. And I will email you.
