--THOUGH IT’S POSSIBLE I’M DREAMING, DON’T WAKE ME YET
…I just ran 12 miles and I’m a little sore. It was colder than heck out.Afterward, I stopped at the convenience store which conveniently stocks my favorite brand of Gummie Bears—Lifesavers Wild Berries. Yum. I’m a sucker for Gummies. My daughter and I once scoured the country trying to find the very best ones and we finally located them in, of all places, Universal Studios at a candy shop there. These Gummies were very tiny but so sweet.
Now I’m sucking down a Corona. I can’t, in clear conscience recommend eating Gummies then popping open a beer. Don’t do it.
...I’m posting early as I’ll be headed to Vancouver before the crack of dawn in an attempt to beat the expected snowfall. The drive might be treacherous, but if I make it there alive it’s going to be fantastic.
…So I’ll be back here Monday. Until then, here are some things worth pondering:
“HEY. it's so very easy to feel small and crumpled up like a wad of paper just now. here's me reminding you that you can still put a single word to a page, and then another, and pretty soon there is a line, and a single line can save your life. sometimes, as noted, it's a big fucking deal to make a sentence. same with life. i get up out of bed (don't want to), i put my clothes on (don't want to), i leave the house (don't want to), i go into the world (don't want to) and then i watch for micro beauty everywhere i go so i can keep moving.” Lidia Yuknavich
