what I often do. Work.
As a people watcher, I had plenty of opportunities this evening. Time at a sports bar/restaurant, The Englander, I spent, hearing dialogue good enough for a book or movie. One guy sitting behind me insulted the young lady I imagined he was dating for the first time. He tossed interview-type questions at this bleached blond Asian woman sitting to his right.
She was fit---in her twenties. Her date guessed she could be fifty. "Really?" she harrumphed, giving him a wearied look, even though the evening was still young.
I saw this fellow, earlier, in the bathroom. I wondered why he rushed out after taking care of business, as if he was catching a plane. I would not eat with him. She did. His hands he didn't wash in the room we shared.
Tonight, spent time with "Bob". My friends and I shared a table with him. Before the game, he had worked in Campbell, near where I lived, in my twenties. Soon enough, he opened up about an abusive step-father he had, while a child. He didn't know the work I do. Strangers confide in me, all the time. Somehow, they sense they can.
1. Sleep. It beckons me. I will yield to it after posting this. My mind is operates better, when I have decent rest. It rejuvenates me.
2. I will spend time with family Friday. I like the closeness we share and support I get, when with them.
3. I made time for me, today. I am glad that I make sure that I get nurtured.
4. Saw another excellent movie: Fury. I was inspired by the story it told.
How About You?
What are your gratitudes for today?
