Emma excited about an apple party in her class today, signifying the conclusion of her module on apple studies, how they are grown, etc. Jack making it a point to tell me he’s going to begin his day with kickball. Again, their priorities and interests, of course with the insistence of innocence, but the simplicity and non-complicated audit of their aims. Enviable, beyond enviable.
Couple calls made already, making myself go for an hour run at lunch. No distance or pace aim, just one hour running. Will continue to do that till I’m back at 8+ miles for lunch. Making the decision now… in a new somewhat me v. ME Beat and synchrony. Don’t know how else to put it.
More traffic at Emma’s school than I’ve ever seen. People just doing weird and not-so-safe shit. Three-point turn in the middle of traffic, pulling in to the driveway then immediately reversing out Into the jam. Then people just stopping and talking to their kids inside the car holding up the entire world. Kept calm, but shook my head a couple dozen-times-forty times.
One loss this morning, discipline to not get a breakfast sandwich from Noto. Oh well… it’s Friday, and I spend plenty of money on other and in one case just send it somewhere where it’s in no way deserved. So, still logging the loss but shrugging.
Back to AE story… all notes brief this morning. No verbose goes in today’s entries. Brevity, journalism. Just facts you might say.
