If we were having coffee, I’d tell you to sit back, put your feet up, and enjoy the music. Oh, and the coffee of course. It’s good of you to stop by this week. I hope all has been well with you, just as all has been well here. Let’s talk.
My music? I like lots of stuff, but today I’m listening to Alanis. That’s right, we’re having coffee with Alanis. I like the sound of that. I can remember when she burst onto the scene with “Jagged Little Pill.” That was, let’s see, the summer of 1995. Yes, I remember that, and yes I’m old. What ya gonna do? Old happens. They say it beats the alternative.
So far this week, I’ve logged somewhere between 13 and 14 miles out running the trails and roads. It feels good to be back running after my little layoff, but I need to be more consistent. Only three runs this week! So often it can’t be helped though. Life is busy and while running four to five times a week is a worthy goal it’s almost unrealistic. I do what I can to supplement my lack of time at home by working out at work during lunch. It’s mostly body weight exercises, but that’s mostly what I’m into anyway and getting a 30 minute workout in at work is cool. It feels almost like cheating. Then I can do other things at home and not feel so bad about missing a run here and there.
What other things? Things like posting “Short Tuesday” on Tuesdays and “Bad Poetry Thursday” on, yep, Thursdays. I like doing them. It is freeing in some way. I’ve always been, not really scared but very apprehensive to put any creative type works like that out in the wild. Writing, I feel, opens a window into a person and that can be very intimidating, but I like to write and what good is it if the only person that ever sees the writings is me? (that was one long sentence. whew!) Starting these weekly posts, I had little to no expectations for them. All I really wanted was an outlet, and they provided that. That being said, I’ve been surprised by their acceptance by our community. I’ll admit to being a little surprised every time someone clicks the like button on one of my post, but it feels good. If you’re one of those people that’s clicking the button, thanks, if not, I understand that too and appreciate your time for taking a look.
Oh, wow! Has it been that long already. Okay then, I won’t delay you further. Have a great week and take a cup to go. No worries, just bring that cup back next week and we’ll fill it up again.
This was indeed written on the way home. Posted now that I am home. By the way, we do have coffee, tea, and various other things here to drink. Might I interest you in something. Have a great day, and God Bless You!
