Ten minutes of presence. I can do this.
The soft purr, purrrr, purrrrrr of Antoinette as she lays on my lap
A cool draft blowing across my lower legs
Ringing in my ears…hmmm…hmmmmm…hmmmmmm
Quiet cracked by intermittent, excitable words spoken in French
Slam of a car door in the distance
We should get started on the garden.
I have to do my ball and chain neck extensions.
Ouai, mais l’anti-virus…
Drone of the microwave
Rich aroma of strong brewing coffee
My head is forward
Ting, tinnggg, tiinnngggg.
