A Long Roll of Parchment

If my To Do list were on a long roll of parchment, I’m not sure I’d have the patience to completely un-scroll it to view it all.  But I oddly enough feel grateful for such a full life.  The alternative is that I would have nowhere to go, nowhere to be, (“a simple little kind of free”.. thank you John Mayer, for continuously permeating my life) and I would be dull.  Like my professor who doesn’t know how to use an iron that I feel an odd sense of sympathy for.  Maybe he looked at me today with my unruly hair, dirty glasses, and acne that I am so obviously trying to hide and felt pity for me.  Hee hee.  What a delightful thought.

In any event, I think it’s a fun challenge to try and embrace the list of quotidienne things because frankly, they are never going away.  Discovery in this quest: African music provides the opportunity to dance while you are cleaning.  Wonderful combination that completely erased the gray monotony I was dreading this morning.  My personal favorite is Zivanai Misango if you can catch any of his tunage.

So, all I have to say really, is that life is simple today.  It is bordering on routine.  But everyone I love is walking around living their routines and out of the hospital, I have no tragedies occurring, no ghosts haunting me, and absolutely nothing of lasting consequence to do which means I have the freedom of creativity today of choosing how I want to make today an adventure.
