I’ve been reading back over the past few entries, and I feel like I’ve been very serious lately. I don’t think there’s anything inherently wrong with seriousness, especially if one is watching eastern European films, where happy endings are outside the cultural capacity. But for the sake of levity in postings, I’ll relate some of the delightful things that have happened this week:
Monday: Long walk along glorious Charles River with one of my favorite people, golden late-afternoon sun shining breathtakingly on water and buildings. (Golden late-afternoon sun not, however, warming anything. Thanks to TTJ for dressing in multiple layers and offering me one of them!) Lots of “I-can’t-believe-I-live-here” moments; lots of Brownian thoughts (God’s in His heaven/All’s right with the world).
Tuesday: Witnessed TTJ’s official Dance of Joy not once but TWICE. (Awesome.) Successful crow pose held a short while (big deal).
Wednesday: Second No Sugar day survived by means of grit, willpower, and one peanut butter sandwich. Long (fairly) and delightful (completely) talk with someone already on list of favorite people (now closer to top).
Thursday: Successful crow pose held long time (very big deal)! (LOVE yoga. Easiest for persons with no bones but still very enjoyable for mortals.) Serious red meat craving alleviated via impromptu successful Spikeburger quest. Joyful discovery that former Davis Square coffeehouse is now a creperie!
Friday/weekend: Hasn’t happened yet (obviously), but will include trip to New York City (gooooooo Fung Wah!) with TTJ to hang out with J?B, play, have Cultural Experiences, and potentially meet potential links to potential clients for potential essay/free-lance editing bidness.*
A pretty typical week, all in all. Mine is a fairly mundane existence but it has its beautiful moments. Lots of them, in fact. I have a goal to focus more on these both in my thinking and in my online journal writing – we’ll see how I do.
*Many of you know I edit college/graduate school/law school/business school application essays. Some very exciting developments (and wonderful friends who apparently have lots of confidence in me) have lately led this risk-averse diametrical-opposite-of-an-entrepreneur to consider the formerly un- and perhaps even anti-considered. Divinity seems to be at work here. Stay tuned – more to come.
