The Reluctant Host: Creepy Crawly Threshold Guardians, Part Two

hiker-918473__480

So my road trip continues and so does my encounter with creepy crawly Threshold Guardians. Pernicious. Now I am under treatment for head lice, body lice and am trying to thwart tiny bedbug or mite babies that show up all around me and some take haven in my skin.

But I and my allies are fighting back. I guess some Threshold Guardians require not humility or surrender so much as vigilant opposition.

I am grateful to be alive. Last night I slept rolled in a sheet on a bathroom floor to avoid the bed. For the first night in weeks I dreamed.

Tomorrow the Orkin man comes and today I am bombing the car and getting mattress covers with zippers and 91 percent alcohol spray. I have cortisone cream and a lotion for the lice. For now I am sitting at a Paneras to write this and do some other writing and school work while a snow storm builds.

Life marches on, even under duress.

Life is a blessing.
