very tired but can’t sleep. also, must more driving. sleeping and driving not advised. thinking about how judgy i was recently seeing families, homeless on the road. horror, mostly ..but there was that tinge of how could you let this happen– because you get this hulk sort of strength regarding your children? i’d say yeah and yet not invincible. systems fail fail fail and some people don’t have any fallback. they just don’t. so i guess just to say a sincere heartfelt thank you to those who have helped me and mine along the way. #thatspoetry
