Someone left a national geographic in the little kitchen at the studio. So lately, when I'm eating my peanut butter & jelly sandwich, I've been reading about blue holes. Also, one day when I was thinking about flamingos, I found this video:
Also, this evening, I happened to meander down to the library to check out a laptop for my office hour. I was just standing there staring at something (i can't remember), when I turned to my right and noticed a "lost & found" table. I was wondering if I was allowed to just take stuff-- I was confused that everything was just set out-- but then! (imagine my happiness when) i saw my long lost water bottle! The aluminum one I bought to save the planet (but really becuase i hate wasting money on plastic water bottles). I've been severely dehydrated since I lost it! I was considering asking for another for Christmas because I really didn't want to have to purchase another... and i found it! it was so lucky! and such an extravagant surprise.
Tonight i think lots of things are possible. Probably more than we can ever imagine. And, so I think I have a responsibility to be better at imagining. And dreaming. (If you listen to this song**, every day before you get on the bus-- I bet you'll feel the same way.) (Warning: it includes a line about a chandelier...)
**can't take credit for discovering the song-- it was a gift from a good friend.
