My child dealt with death yesterday all by herself. Sure, it might have been a cat, not a human, but not calling me for support dealing with mortality seems like a really big step toward adulting.

Not Facebook surveys. I really should get off my phone and get back to those best things. They’re all *real*.

It’s a little reassuring that Facebook has no effing clue who I know really. This supposition is based on those “people you may know” lists — they contain no one I know — but maybe they’re meant to mislead me. It could all be part of their plan of lulling me into a sense of security, while they actually know every iota of scraps of thoughts from my secret heart. But then I think about the ads which don’t remotely match my interests.

I’ve been playing the piano for hours every day for a few weeks now. And sitting at every piano I find in public places — with or without permission. I find no one complains if you play something familiar first. As a result the rest of my arts are reawakening. More writing is occurring and more life feels like it’s happening. I just feel like the proverbial muse is self-generated and it’s my job to keep that spark fed, so to speak. If you know any art, may I suggest you practice it at least once a day. For me, it reminds me why I exist, who I am, and pulls me out of the drudgery. Existence without art kind of isn’t exist-y enough, for me at least. #feelinginspired

I have gotten two parking tickets in downtown Clearwater while using the ParkMobile app. 😕 some kind of delay in the system or something. Very irritating. I think I’ll go back to good old fashioned quarters in the slot.

Yesterday, i had a really bad nightmare about bad things happening to the people I love most and today I need extra sleep but I’m afraid to go to sleep. Nightmares are yucky. I demand an epic dream to balance the scales. Maybe a dream about candy Pegasi air dancing with my favorite old timey crooners on their backs singing to me while I float in the hot tub and cherubs massage my feet, then Ed McMahon hands me a giant check. It might need a few more perks before it makes up for last night’s betrayal by my subconscious. Grrrrh.

Today, life moves on. A death, a birth, an engagement, a birthday. What did I do? I got six words down. Six. Ugh.

Have you ever had something touch you, like a hoodie string or something, that was a total surprise and actually registered as pain before you realized what it was? I just nearly jumped out of my skin because of a wayward shirt strap.
