I spend too much time in my head sometimes, time that would be better spent celebrating the goodness that surrounds me. I don’t think we do enough of that.
My parents, gosh darn it, are still alive and kicking it around the country. They are currently on their annual 3-month tour of the country. My friend Kris (who I will be seeing in California shortly) and I oftentimes remark that we have hit the collective parent lottery.
My sister sent me the most heartbreaking email yesterday, which is just another reason why I think I probably hit the sister lottery too. We are not as close as we’d like, but we’re not as far apart as it seems.
I’m sitting at my desk, staring our the window at a calm, peaceful winter’s night with a blanket of beautiful white snow on the ground. Say what you will about the world: when you take a second to block out the noise, the signal is amazing.
I live in a time when Geography is not a hindrance to personal relationships.
