Woke up this morning with the theme song of The Jetsons in my head. After humming a few notes my husband started humming the theme song of The Simpsons. It turned into a pretty great duet, but then somewhere in the middle it all just became one jumbled mess. Then neither of us could hum either song without messing up.
Updated 7pm: I think fish is the theme of the day. Collective cosmic unconsciousness. Went to the post office & the local brewery and both places people were talking about fish. Just like in Repo Man “plate-o-shrimp”.
I woke up tired today, but I motored through the morning by consuming gluten and butter. I am now itchy & my eyes are heavy – but that toast was so good.
I have been trying to focus on one project at a time, but my mind wanders and sometimes it works out for the better. Like today, when I should of been working on my clients stuff – I got lost in playing in my design program & I reimagined my official logo and made a new t-shirt! Get yours now!
“Fragile melting snow hiding from the microscopic beams of a dying star.”
— Linda Vigil
I have to admit I love winter. The way it makes people hunker down & put effort into survival. But mostly I love the crispt quiet fragile softness of snow – how it burns uncovered hands quicker than any flame.
But now there is mud- tons of it! And birds coming before sunrise to wake me up and make me think. Buy a signed instax print of this poem!
This song brought back so many memories of driving hundreds of miles in the desert with dear friends who I no longer keep in contact with. Maybe for the week I am back home I might run into some them.
One reason – it’s a 24 hour drive that I have made only 3 times in the last 2 decades since I left. I’ve booked tickets for a quick flight this time, with my husband joining me & my family 5 days later.
Although I do not regret most of my life choices- I do regret not returning home more often.
I’ve made a list of things we should do:
4/23 Tu: Ask Bros to be picked up 10pm (M/J/C)
4/24 W: Check out / try to get to the salt lake (T/J)
