Dryer Towel

Today is my first day home from the funeral and dealings of my father’s passing.

I started the laundry. 

The mundane things of life comfort me.

I pulled a towel from the dryer and wrapped myself up in it. 

I pretended it was my father’s arms around me.

I felt comforted in the warmth.

That is about all I have done all day….except to walk outside…

The world to me seems to be set in fast forward motion. 

Everyone is buzzing so fast they are in a blurrrrrr….

I am set in slow motion, nearly at a stop

and nature seems to understand my pace.
