Two days in a row...

For a year that started out so well, I could only sustain it for 2 days in a row. This morning I made a series of bad choices that built up and turned into mistakes that delayed me and made my friend wait for me and that frustrated me no end. Just as I was about to loose it, I heard a sound that touches my heart. I was in the right place at the right time to hear Sand Hill cranes fly over head. Aaaaaahhhhhh. The rest of the day was lovely and even included a nap.

"After all these years, I am still involved in the process of self-discovery. It's better to explore life and make mistakes than to play it safe. Mistakes are part of the dues ones pays for a full life." Sophia Loren

Grace in small things:
1. Clear crisp days that warm up.
2. Excellent vanilla soy lattes
3. Fantastic Mr. Fox... of course George Clooney could read a phone book and I would be happy
4. The anticipation of a new class and assembling tools!
5. Sand Hill cranes, the way they sound, they way they look flying, the peace they bring to me
