OK. So I uploaded a little video of myself claiming by rite of hat for the Wakefield Doctrine. Fine. Then I began this post. The opening line went something like “so who was old enough in 1973 to go see this movie”. As I was attempting to insert a YouTube clip of 2 guys talking about the place and about the end of the movie and such, my computer froze and simultaneously began emitting a deep whine. Steady, constant. Nothing to do except turn it off. When I returned to this post, blank screen. Nothing. No shit.
Anywho, today I discovered that Georgetown (cool shopping/tourist district in D.C.) is a mere 13 miles from where I live. And, I could get there without driving major highways. Sure ’nuff, I was crossing the Key Bridge and hanging a right onto M St., in an amazingly short time. In fact, I was back to home base within 2 hours after having driven around, walked around, took pictures, looked for ways to turn around from the 1 ways…. Who knew the world could get bigger a mere 13 miles away.
It’s a thankful post. Because it’s Sunday. Because I haven’t posted since last weekend. Truth be told, it was not such a good week. But the alternatives are way worse and so I can be very thankful for my “not so good week”. Truly. Dammit…now my speaker icon is going balistic, flashing on off on off…possession. Oh, its’ real alright. There’s all types of possession. Personally, I don’t like to discuss the religious/supernatural kind. No sir. Just. Leave. It. Alone. Guess you’ll have to go look up the movie clip(s) your own selves.
My thankfuls this week? I woke up each and every day. Sunday through Saturday. Always my starting point. As is today. It’s a beautiful day. And it’s incumbent upon my own damn self to see what oftentimes I don’t, to be open to that which is all around me all of the time but for the simple willingness to step forward and venture out from behind the dotted lines.
