Revelations are so wonderful, so much more special when they come while one is reading a mediocre novel with the sun as a friend.
Yesterday, I was sitting on my window seat, a few chapters shy of finishing a book I would never ordinarily read - we English majors can be very selective on the books we like others to see in our laps; it must be first-rate impressive, with a publication date of 1798 (yes, this date does have meaning; free cookies for anyone who knows why!) - anything before is considered positively medieval and reserved for the art and history clan, and all afterwards are just too...modern - I would be terrified for a stranger to see this 2009, New York Times Bestseller shoved in my face while I am still wearing my pajamas, a few empty tea cups surrounding me, because that is not what a proper english grad would ever do. Nor would they use a lower-case 'e' for english. Thankfully, I have not officially graduated yet - when I was struck by this very thought: I must, I will start writing on my blog!
I truly do not mind that I have no followers but two; I don't even mind that I am relinquishing myself to the modern (there is that word again!) trend of writing and exposing my thoughts for all of the world to see - I have been dying to use this wonderfully oft used phrase! There it stands, in all it's over-used glory! - I am even feeling inspired feelings to start couture-esque comments about my new community's wardrobe, follow local gossip, and post pictures of my food creations. This will be very fun.
I will start off with some interesting facts about this day:
1) I have been a wife for six weeks. My husband is the best husband in the world. That is actually a fact every day!
2) I can see the Pacific from my porch! This is also true everyday.
3) We have no mushrooms on the first day of mushroom season.
