What a day!
First of all, it’s been raining for about 12 hours, off and on. [Note for newbies: it doesn't do that here. Usually.] I stepped outside last night into mud and “corn snow,” the pelletized snow we frequently get. Or maybe that was hail on the ground. I wasn’t in a mood to investigate. Right now at 8:00 a.m. the sky is overcast and the mountains are gone, invisible behind a curtain of lowered gray.
In another hour, I take off for Albuquerque, 2.5 hours away. There I’ll visit the Apple Store and try to convince a genius to replace my battery for free while they’re installing a new space bar key. Then I come back this direction to Santa Fe, where I’ll visit a couple of glass shops to get estimates on a new windshield for the Vibe, and when I’m finished with that, I’ll visit the oral surgeon and pay close to $400 just to find out if I’m a candidate for a dental implant.
Ah, America. Ah, me.
These are, I feel, very weird times. I’ve felt off-balance for more than a week, as if I’m expecting something awful to happen, like the boy emperor starting yet another war and bumping gas prices to $10/gallon. As if that were the worst consequence, I know, I know… But all of a sudden, the money wants to flow OUT in a big way that’s unnerving. Perhaps this is to make room for more to come in!
We still need a bigger house and a studio. Everything is in flux but still seems stuck. It might be time for something big, which brings me back to my uneasy anticipation of whatever.
Good day to you all, at any rate. Stay calm and proceed in an orderly fashion to the viewing deck. Life goes on.
