kitchen gods

remover of obstacles.
he usually sits on the windowsill over the kitchen sink.
i wonder where the obstacles come from.
some just are.
some may be unrecognized opportunities.
some simply test my patience.

sometimes we chat over the soap suds, he and i.

  1. Something about the look in his eyes makes me ask: has he whispered to you that he thinks we may be our own obstacles?

  2. He's lovely! I will try to remember to photograph my kitchen windowsill Ganesh today...we have chats too. Makes me thankful I don't have a dishwasher (kind of).

  3. PS: for some reason on many of the blogs I'm visiting (including yours) the "leave a comment" button is hidden. I have to hit "reply" to an existing comment, then it appears and I can hit "comment." Not sure what's up with that?!

  4. I love the thought of you chatting with him while you wash the dishes!
