What a day! Last night, as I was biking back from Carytown with Megan, I thought of having to start my work week, and in my mind I dreaded it, thinking, “Why on Earth do I have to do this? Life is strange, because today was one of those really good days that breezed by.
It began by waking up at 6:30am. Even though I was tired, I got up anyway. I started my day with water, followed by cereal and coffee. I then watched the news in French on Youtube. After this, I worked on my novel for a bit. I did some writing in French. My language immersion learning method works pretty well.
I made my bed this morning. This is a new thing. I never used to make my bed.
My friend Lisl asked if anyone wanted her old I.D. She said that it is something that Dorothy would do, to keep other people’s I.D.s. And all I’ve ever wanted in life is to be like Dorothy, so I took the I.D. It’s now pasted into my journal. Then I went upstairs to apartment E with Cameron, Adara, and Kennedy to help plant seeds in egg cartons. When they sprout, they will be planted in the median on Broad street.
After this, it was almost lunchtime. I heated up a couple of burritos and walked with Chris M. to the Observation deck at city Hall. I thought about how much I like seeing how small things look from up high.
At home, I felt inspired to begin a very large canvas painting. It is a used canvas, meaning it already has a painting on it, but it is mostly flat grey, and so I’m going to paint right over it. I’m not sure yet what I will paint. I could do an expressionistic painting that is non-representational. I ma also do a piece that harmonizes with some of the other ones I’ve done. I could also do a representational piece which would take the most work. I’m not sure that I am up for it. One idea is to paint a bird’s eye view of the city. I think that I’ve decided to try and incorporate all three of these ideas into the canvas, because it’s so big.
And, I would like to write more about today, but I am tired and my bed is calling my name.
