What’s the best book you read in the last five years? Or ever? Or in the last week?
I need to load up my Nook for the next three weeks. With a full 24-hours (one way!) of travel time plus downtime on the ol’ hmoon and the return trip, I need…a lot. And I want a lot more than the current Bestseller list.
Does anyone know a weather god who can take this chance of THUNDERSTORMS ON MY WEDDING DAY down to zero?
Please and thank you?
Tonight I also Had Chicken for Dinner.
I grabbed the last rotisserie chicken at the grocery.
The kid behind the counter said “must be your lucky night.”
I held that beautiful golden protein-filled chicken (that I didn’t have to cook) high above my head and said WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER!…perhaps a touch too enthusiastically because he just looked at me like a weirdo who was definitely not funny.
Today I hated my job; disliked my body; got overwhelmed by my to-do list; and missed my grandfather.
Today I resented the media for being so god damn irresponsible and hated politics for being so god damn cynical.
Today I felt sad.
So I ran.
I did it for me, make no mistake. But I was propelled by thoughts that there are three people who will never feel sad or have a bad day again; that there are dozens more who will no longer have the gift to walk—let alone run—again; that there are individuals and families who can’t close their eyes without remembering what they saw or how it felt again.
There have been a lot of posts that say Today I Ran.
Tonight I am one of them. And while there’s a whole host of diverse reasons and feelings behind each step for each person, there is something of comfort in knowing that there is also unity and camaraderie and support and bravery in them too.
xoxo from Philly and me.
