I've been thinking about just 'running away'...find a place...and just 'be'. Since I woke up today, I've been sipping on dextromethorphan cocktails; prayerfully wishing nobody walks into my office with anything to say or ask. I'm in a mood to 'downsize' my life - maybe move to alaska; live off the land - find a place where 'success' is measured in terms of securing Heat, Food, Shelter for one's family. The air is warm today - probably in the mid 60s; but humid. Not a bad day - walking along the breezeway from my office door to gop_jeff's I notice the cloud-filtered sunlight casts a neat glow upon my car, sitting in the parkinglot. My daughter is growing up too fast. She's already got a 'shape' to her - unlike todlers, whose bodies aren't much more than belly, head, and limbs. I watched "After the Sunset" last night; Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hyak, and others...I want what they have - those characters...not the $...just the "a certian-said I don't know what." The movie gets a 1.5 out of 5 stars. The ending seemed like "okay, we're out of money, lets find a way to end this thing." Best line I've read today? "Nothing comes from nothing." isn't that the truth? Nothing ventured, nothing gained...nothing planted, nothing harvested. Nothing invested, nothing returned.
