hi there.

Welcome to my blog. I'm spending a year capturing happiness, and I invite you to come along as I journey toward a more joyful living. I also write about travel, food, and matters of the spirit. Hope you enjoy!

Phoneless Run

Phoneless Run

The title makes me think of Shoeless Joe, though there is no similarity beyond [something]-“less” [something], and the total number of syllables.

(I think that’s telling of how my brain works and should probably be analyzed.)

Basically, I went for a run this morning on the East Bay Bike Trail...it was one of those days instead of a Blackstone Boulevard day. The sky was overcast and my earphones were in my car, uncharged from yesterday, so there was no reason to bring my phone. I just ran, and spent some quality time with the BGU. (Big Guy Upstairs). We had a great chat, and I felt refreshed, ready to start my day. 

Also, the fact that I made 55+ phone calls for work despite having the urge to cough every ten seconds was really exceptional. **trying not to get sick**

Fun/weird fact: I have a five-year journal, and for four of the last five years, I have gotten sick THIS VERY SAME WEEK. Isn’t that crazy?? Two years in a row I woke up with a sore throat on the exact same day (November 4th).

I’m clearly losing steam here for this blog entry, so I’m going to go. I sent two texts today that made my friends do a literal LOL, and that felt like quite an accomplishment. It gives me pleasure to bring them delight!  

Even if it is, technically, at my expense. No matter.  

Goodnight, Friends!
