I have been spending a lot of time out and about in the world.
I’ve been to the symphony, argued with a friend, tried to figure out what wine tasting is all about and indulged in a new variety of Marshmallow Peeps called ” Delights“.
I guess I wanted to add a little pep to my writing and that’s the way I do it- I sort of jump into things and start swimming and hope a shark doesn’t pop up and bite me in half.
Tonight I walked my dog Hamish Macbeth and on our walk he tried to eat a rotten sandwich, cat poop and he ate a mouthful of yard clippings. When we got home I gave him a Peanut Butter Girl Scout cookie and he dropped it on the floor uneaten.
I picked it up and offered it to him and he took it, looked at me for a minute and let it drop back out of his mouth and it landed on the floor, only slightly soggy and hardly even chewed.
I considered throwing it under a bush because I wondered if he found it tomorrow if he’d eat it then.
Why bother, I decided.
I know the answer.
I saw some big things, small things weird things and I was glad I was there.
Now it’s time to write again.
The world is a great place.
See it often.
