In the meantime, enough whining. In the spirit of Three Beautiful Things, here are some little things that have caught my notice as of late:
- a man in a tuxedo standing on the corner of a residential neighborhood, apparently not waiting for a bus or a ride or anything. He's holding a sign that reads: "Audition Today."
- a family on a bike ride along the trail. Hom leads the pack, Dad brings up the tail. Right in front of Dad, little brother, probably no older than 5, pedals like a madman, his knees flying up, furiously.
- tending Honey through food poisoning this weekend. Though it breaks my heart when he's ill, there's something really love-affirming about having that heartbreak. The beautiful agony of true love; of hurting when they suffer.
- seeing an occasional friend from childhood - and cousin of a dear friend from childhood - in the audience of the Emmys; feeling happy that this person's significant other won and that this person made it to the thank you speech.
