August 15

I've had this song on my brain all day. Why? Because I'm lucky.
I have a sister who not only knits me socks ...
she also sends me wonderful little gifts like this, a needle case made of our mother's long-ago satin dress ...
with mama's handmade felt inside.

I feel hugged from afar.

I don't need a bracelet
No salt for my shoulder
I don't own a rabbit
No clover
No heather
No cross
No wonder
I'm lucky
I'm lucky
I can walk under ladders.
