Day 125: Feelings, briefly

I am writing this post in the evening of a day where I experienced a range of emotions, including:

  1. Joy, because I reunited with a childhood friend who is writing a wonderful blog here (and was at least partially inspired by this blog) AND
  2. Disappointment, because I realized that my fantasy of giving a “big” presentation in June might not turn out as I wished.

There were lots of other feelings I experienced today, but those are the ones that are standing out for me right now.

Boy, feelings can really get things going, can’t they?  And I don’t know about you, but I am more comfortable with joy than I am with disappointment.

But all the feelings of this day passed through me, just like weather moves through our atmosphere.

Which is great, because now I can be totally present in this moment, and do what I really want to do:

Post a goofy picture.

I took this photo last week, when I was driving through Watertown, MA, a town that has been in the news lately. I saw this Giant Tooth jumping around, apparently trying to sell something. When I pulled over to get a photo of him/her/it, I got two thumbs up.

We both had big smiles, then.

Thanks for reading!

    I am glad I was the joyous, not disappointing part of your day! You were LARGELY inspiring to me and still are. Loved sharing our feelings about blogging. And great tooth photo! Enjoy your vacation!!

    • I’m with you, Deb! And you inspire me, in many ways, including (1) how you write and (2) how great you are at telling people you appreciate them. I’m learning from you.
