I am cleaning in a room i never clean  –

perhaps it is because the room is painted to look like you are outside –

even the curtains are leaves and twigs and covered with birds —

then i realize i never wash the curtains either –

so as go to take down the the curtain

(revealing sunlight streaming in thru a rather dirty window pane)

i see i am not the only one who hides from reality….

a tiny lizard is perched on the topmost branch available – the curtain rod –

and i wonder…

how are we surviving here?

inside and out

housekeeping is always on the agenda…..
