Stuff and whatever, ya know
Kelsey and I just left acupuncture. And, as a favor to me, Kelsey ran a red light before getting on the 5 north in San Clemente. How is that a favor? Well, I like to maintain a known condition, and god forbid I be relaxed a few minutes! I’ve been working from home the past couple of days. The weather has had us concerned about our commute, and the cold and damp had put my pain into full throttle. At home I can wrap up in a blanket or bring the laptop to bed. It’s a flexability I don’t have at the office. The rain, hail, and wind have been beautiful. I marvel at how our planet uses self destruction as a means to cleanse and purge and renew. What looks like a mess now will be so beautiful this spring. And really, the hills knew how to be muddy, post fire hills before you put your houses in them. It’s all about choices. I remember growing up in a beach town and seeing the seagulls come inland to line up in parking lots, away from the water. That’s how you knew the storm was on us. What do we do? Go down to the beach and stand on a pier! Surf in it! Yes, birds with brains the size of macadamia nuts have this figured out, and we can’t think not to drive a compact car through a 4 foot puddle of water. I’ll follow the birds! It was trash day in our neighborhood. The wind blew several full bins of trash over, and the trash blew all over. At 3:30 pm is it possible that I was the first person all day to notice this mess?my own barrel hadn’t blown over but a few of my neighbors had. So, I righted the bins, picked up the trash and went on my way. Was it so hard? No! Damn people, what’s up with you? I think I do need to go hang out with the birds. Stopping to fill Kelsey’s gas tank, then home to make dinner. Mathew is coming over. Then bed. I have a book to finish reading. I need to finish it so I can start another. I’m in that mode.
