justprompts Is there such a thing as truly wiping the slate clean and starting over?  

There's dust when you wipe the slate clean. Even if you use water, that leaves behind residue as well. If you throw the slate out the window it doesn't disappear. If you smash it into a million pieces, those pieces still exist.

I have started over many times so I know. All the dust and all the broken pieces are always still there.

Chalk dust is beautiful. And water, when it falls in drops on the table. The cheapest glass can glitter like crystal when crushed. It's wondrous if you know how to look.

Stars start over, just like us. Everything starts over eventually. Everything… continues.

No, there is no such thing as wiping the slate clean. And there shouldn't be. Recycling is good for the environment.

Go green.

You seem really like... upbeat? But not in a plastic perky way. The kidlet must be huge by now! Chrisse time flies.

Up and down. Overall good. My sister's dating again.

I'm optimistic. And yes, she's six, taller than you can imagine and quite the self-assured young lady.

I hope more up than down. Dating someone we like?

Wow. I might be a little teary eyed, here.

It's... well, you know.
Yeah! Kyle Gibney, codename Wildchild. They are so cute together. They're shacking up!

I'm sure she'd love to see you if you want to come by sometime.

Yes, I know.
That's really great. I'm happy for you guys.

I would love that.

I knew you would.
Thank you.

Shit really does work out okay sometimes.

Good. You can see our cute little apartment.

I sometimes think it does a lot more times than we are willing to admit. It's hard to trust but. Well, like I said. I'm optimistic.

That sounds lovely.

I understand.

It's for inbetweentimes. I realized it's silly to look for the perfect place when I never end up staying anywhere all that long anyways. Of course now I am sorta kinda looking for the next step place. Sorta kinda.

Anyway. Figure when you can and let me know.
And I know I may as well have been in another dimension as much as I've been around but if you ever want someone to talk at... well, my cell's still the same.

It's not bad to move a lot. You get to see so much of the world.

I will.
Lorna... I want to say thank you.

True. And meet lots of people. But it's not so bad to hold on sometimes, either.

Well, you're welcome. But thank you, too.
Jean-Paul Beaubier: dorky smilespeed_of_snark on January 12th, 2011 03:08 am (UTC)
I suppose not.

Fsst, I didn't do a damn thing.
Lorna Dane: BP: Dental Hygieneerikscordelia on January 12th, 2011 03:11 am (UTC)

Sure you did.
Now I have a munchkin to get in bed, but we'll talk soon, okay?

You bet. Sleep tight.
