1. Awoke refreshed at 4:40 am, my median wake-up time. Grateful for my sleeping spot in my place of residence, and for the early morning hours. It’s pleasant to see the sky grow light, and to hear the birds chirping outside my open window.
2. Grateful for this close-knit, creative community. I read recently where this town was rated the best place to live in the entire State.
3. 48F degrees and perfect running weather. Jeremiah said he would leave a pair of whole shoes for me at the church. Grateful for the runners I’ve met recently – Jeremiah, Cody, Brandy — and the motivation I’ve received talking with them. I remember if I wanted to run when I lived in Berkeley I had to always ask another homeless guy whom I trusted to watch my back pack and all my stuff while I ran. It’s nice becoming a runner among runners again.
4. Nice cup of Instant that I made here at home.
5. Heard from Lynne Fisher just now. Grateful for our ongoing correspondence and friendship.
6. The cafe here in town where I get most of my work done. It’s not only not problematical, like most cafes where I’ve attempted to hang out in the past, but the people who own and run the place, and the regular customers whom I’ve gotten to know, are genuinely very supportive of me and of each other. I’m really grateful for that cafe, and for the round table where I sit.
7. It’s great to have a new computer that is not interfering with my process or slowing down to a huge degree, like the old one was. It’s also great to have a single computer with everything on it, and not to have to go back home to (say) burn a CD, for example. Thankful for there finally having been a solution to an aggravating computer issue that had hindered me for so long.
8. Everybody is on board my project, and rehearsals are going well. It’s nice to be a worker among workers.
9.My church. Thankful for their letting us use the facilities for rehearsals, before we all move into the Kenworthy Theatre at the end of the summer.
10. God is Good. :)
