Body: The entire material or physical structure of an organism (def. by freedictionary.com)
I feel my sense of my body changing in this new home. All of a sudden, I am taller, when
My body, this new body, is filled with vaguely-organized baskets and boxes. From here I can see the mending basket, the take-with-me-to-work basket, a fabric basket, another fabric basket, a chest of books and blankets and towels, a box that has a pair of Cooper’s jeans in it. All kinda disheveled, merely set down, and now staying in their disarrayed places set. I hope
I’m grateful and I’m wildly curious who I will become with this new body. This new
capacity for holding.
People often link homes to foundations, as if it’s this thing you are simply stepping on, rather than the skin and the mud and the faucet with which I fill my self. It’s a mother. It’s a body. It’s my body. And it’s growing me.
