This is the fifth place to find me on the internet. Please don't tell me I need a sixth.
Rebooting this morning. I got up at 5:30 and walked the dog for an hour. I was free and easy with my hellos to strangers on the street. I got to where I was going faster than usual, or at least it felt that way. I was just trying to make sense of everything and so time moved differently. Nothing was open for coffee except for a little vegan place, painted pink. The dog sat placidly outside. I bought yogurt and raspberries after that. Just before I got home, I saw my handsome, married neighbor who smokes cigars at sunset on the roof by himself. We beamed at each other. In my apartment I lit a candle, I scrubbed the stove. I took down a piece of art from the wall, wrapped it up in a bag, put in the closet. Just so I would never have to look at it again. I moved some other pieces around on the wall behind my desk. Just so I could have something new behind me. I might order an office chair, too, I’ve been thinking about that. Just so I could have some new kind of support. Then there was the making of the lists. My lists are serious. They are designed for radical alteration and also for success. #7: Whatever I was doing before today was the thing I did then but now it’s now and I need to do something else.
