Five Days off the Radar
I took off several days to recupe and refresh from the long hours I’ve been working since the first of the year. And it was great. Other than an eye-doctor appointment on Thursday, I had no real plans, other than to be self-indulgent. I spent every possible moment outside … saw a great movie (“Thank You for Smoking”) with my favorite ex … enjoyed lunches and dinners in midtown and East Atlanta with friends and family … helped my sister with a yard sale, buying many can’t-live-withouts … and thought about what I want to do with my life. And now I have the blues because I’ll be back at my desk in nine hours.
A Perfect Moment
Driving around Thursday afternoon … beautiful weather … the sunroof open … singing along with “Finest Worksong” … and looking damn cool in those plastic shades from my eye doctor.
Did one of my favorite things Sunday night, staying up all night long, watching movies until 5 a.m. I haven’t had a movie marathon in months. Highlights were “A History of Violence,” “Junebug” and “The Squid and the Whale” … “The Ice Harvest” was pretty good … and “Just Like Heaven” was OK (but her San Francisco apartment was fabulous!).
The Next Chapter
I’m seriously considering making a major change in my life — maybe next month, maybe next year. There are a lot of things I have to consider and work out, but hopefully things will come together and I can move to my next life chapter. Sorry to be vague, but I don’t want to mess up by saying too much too soon.
