“rite of spring” by george booth/the new yorker

When we saw the cover of this week’s New Yorker, we laughed out loud. THAT’S US!! we thought. We may be making a Pollack-esque painting inadvertently on the side of the house, but we’re DEFINITELY out of control and off balance. We’re juggling too much while trying to hold up our pants and keep from falling off the ladder.

The clear message: We need some time off. So ‘the improvised life’ is going quiet for a week or so until we get our bearings,our health, and a mighty ‘improvised life’ project (which we’ve been working on for months) on track. (In other words, we’re gonna try following our own advice!)

Stay tuned! (There’s a lot stored in our attic/archive that we bet you haven’t seen!) We appreciate your bearing with us.

  1. Breathe in breathe out…do something silly…enjoy spring…you DO deserve a break.

  2. Let go, let go ~

    Wishing you a refreshingly good time !

  3. This is why I adore “the improvised life” — having the good sense to take bearings and get off the ladder every now and then! Lead the way down; I will follow!

  4. When you paint, you back away from the painting to see what you did.
    You leave the painting and come back to see what you know.
    Like life.

  5. Along with these comments, I’ve gotten SO many swell emails saying YES. STOP. TAKE SOME TIME. I can’t tell you how much they mean to me. Thank you all for bearing with. — Sally
