Geaux Saints! So many people were so deliriously happy the Saints won the Super Bowl; I wonder if this is the first time so many people were pulling for one team. If we collected that same type of energy and focused it on life and death issues like diplomacy versus war, shifting economies to feed the hungry, and health care for everyone, would people scoff at the idea of the power of collective energy? Note: I thought like this before I moved to the bay area, ;-)
One friend is proud and happy because his first notes as Homeowners Association Secretary were perfect with all the legal and technical jargon in the right places.
Another friend is uber happy because she finally found and bought the used Mini Cooper of her dreams. And what a doll it is. Red and shiny and ready to go.
Another friend is delighted because her 1 ½ year old daughter’s hair is finally long enough for pigtails.
I feel happy because I soldiered through 3 angst shadowed days and feel it starting to fade. And, tonight my first article was accepted at the online paper. It’s more of a press release, a call for artists’ applications for a public art project. I need to write like this, it adds up and they have a lot that needs to be done. I’m treating it as my internship. I know the more I do, I'll become more confident in this area; I hope to develop some story ideas and/or get assigned more and more.
I talked to another friend tonight that I haven't seen in over a year. She was layed off in 2008. We touched on what it's like to start over at this age. I think it's a gift.
I like this: Doubt your doubts.
