Appreciation

Not much to say today so I'm just going to talk about the weather. If nothing else, this is just a little writing exercise and an excuse to show off my new icon.

Last night, I drove back from a long but otherwise uneventful day in Lexington. I was amazed by the darkness. I have driven this route a lot in the past year, and last night I seemed like something from a horror movie. A long, desolate road cutting through the starless dark. It suited my mood. I kept wishing I had Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska or Johnny Cash's Murder in the CD player.

I came home and made love to the woman I adore, who gives my life structure and meaning. I slept well in the warmth of her touch.

I woke up this morning to a crisp bright autumn day. When I was younger, I hated fall because it reminded of the inevitability of winter. As I age, I relish it. My wardrobe and my lifestyle is better suited to the cool breeze, the lively colors, the clear sky.

Today is the kind of day that makes worries melt. Last night, despite my results in the evil genius quiz, my girlfriend told me that I have an optimistic, warm gooey center.

Today, I feel it.
