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