I started a post about two weeks ago the day after one on my best friend’s Dad died….and then life happened and it sat here in the draft box until right now. If I look back through my calendar I’ll see things like teach yoga, work double shift, doctor’s appointment, take class, work, teach yoga, take class, work double shift, drive to Michigan after double shift, go to funeral, drive back to Chicago, workout, shop for wedding tux, dinner with Jen and John, early morning photo shoot at UIC library, blah, blah, blah….
It’s all just my stuff. Everybody has their own stuff right? So here I am back at the keyboard in what is truly my first free hour in almost two weeks and I can’t think of a damn thing to write about other than life happens.
Sometime life subtly passes by and blends with the process of our daily lives. At other times it beats you over the head and says, “Take note buddy there is a lot to think about and understand.” I try to learn as much as I can any day and frankly I’m just grateful that I have so many things to beat me over the head and fill up my life. At times my friends and co-workers and family question, tease, remark and at times even compliment me on my schedule. To me it’s just my life. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
So in a two week stretch of delightful insanity that started exactly 336 hours ago at the Pekin Rec Center with a run, some kata and a bit of yoga I note this thought. During that stretch I got a chance to interact with countless people most of whom reminded me how wonderful it is to be alive. In tribute to that I’m going to try to list as many of the things that made me grateful as I can. I’m sure I’ll forget a few but I’ll do my best to think about it today and post it tomorrow. This ought to be fun. In other news I still haven’t looked at my stats since my April 22nd post. Maybe I’ll go the whole month?
