"Children are fascinated by the ordinary and can spend timeless moments watching sunlight play with dust. Their restlessness they learn from you. It is you who are thinking of there when you are here. It is you who thinks of then instead of now. Stop. Let your children become the teachers and you the student" - William Martin

Back to the Good Life

I had the most wonderful run yesterday in the flickering golden light of the cool woods. Maybe 16 miles.

The step-daughter situation isn't bothering me anymore. I was thinking about all of your comments and was really comforted. Wow... and all the things I said to my mom back in the day that I would take back now!

Anyway, how could I not be happy? I was paid nearly $400 last night for four hours of sitting and studying Danish and watching the VP debate (slow night in the Urgent Care). Plus, I'm in love with this guy who I still can't believe is my husband.

And then there's The Lorax.

I got to see Cloud Cult in concert (they're locals); the line "I could use your lips on me... and a little bit of dramamine" makes me laugh.

The only Danish author I can name is Kierkegaard, so I won't be taking up that difficult language. Of course, he makes me laugh, too.

The Bois always was cutie pie, but now - oh, boy!

Good girl! Sounds like you're back in the zone. I love that you're all, "oh, maybe 16 miles ..." I am obsessive about tracking my miles on my Garmin. Good for you for goin' with the flow and where the trail takes you.
