I walked by the river
the strong current
making the waves undulate.
With the water streaming past
I felt as if I was walking in place.
The water’s pace matching mine.
On the horizon, the buildings streaming by.

I walked by the river
Except I can’t actually see any rain. But there’s a storm a’brewin laddie and our flight is delayed. Really delayed. Slated for 820 but now at 130 am, except the plane taking us to FL hasn’t actually left FL left. So that’s what I like to call a guestimate.
Problem is, we’re on our way to my mom’s birthday celebration of a significantly important birthday. So this is a must see tv event and not to be missed.
So we wait. Though the dude said before they think the storm will ground planes until the weekend.
In other news, for the first time in my entire career, I had a real career planning discussion with my boss. Like an actual discussion where I was left with the genuine impression that he was invested in my future career growth within and outside of the group. What a difference from my past workplaces where that discusiionnever happened or didn’t occur as such a forward looking conversation. As someone who can appreciate the conversation for what it truly was, I left work today as a very happy and very optimistic employee.
I saw an article yesterday comparing lindsey lohan to river phoneix. Please. Thats like comparing the stones to britney spears. Why, you ask? Exhibit A. Mean Girls Exhibit B. Running on empty. Discuss.
It was with a heavy heart that I left the golden sandy beach of Coronado today. If I had any idea how much I would love it, I would have spent our whole vacation there.
The sand is, literally golden. As it surges past your feet, it is infused with the most delicate of golden particles. Scooping it into your hand, you see the dark sand and it loses its uniquness, becoming just another pile of sand. But leave it be, and just enjoy it, and it returns to a golden luster.
Now we are in portland, in the middle of a heatwave that they didnt mention or predict when we booked the trip five days ago. And even though wr got stuck in traffic, had to switch hotels after our first on had a broken air conditioner and are paying through the nose for parking, I am looking forward to this leg of the trip. We really liked it during our honeymoon and I am curious if we still do. I thi k our housing expectations have changed over these past few years, and are still changing as we think about expanding our family.
And cause I dont yet have the1.5 million I need to live on Coronado. Bft man, would that be so much more worth it then buying a 2 bedroom in Manhattan.
I just went jogging on the beach for the first time in ages! I overslept lap swim hours, and I hate sharing the pool, so I decided to try jogging for the first time in months. And my knee was fine!
