I had my third guitar lesson today. It reminded me of taking piano lessons, so many years ago, as I felt the need to explain why I hadn’t practiced this week. (And I’m feeling the urge now…)
Jamison passed his drivers’ test today. Congratulations, Jamison. We’re so proud. :-)
- He: I bet it was beautiful riding in today.
- Me: Yes. Yes it was. :-)
Update. I recorded this conversation because (1) it actually happened, (2) it made me happy, and (3) it was maybe the first time this sort of conversation had happened, even though I haven’t driven to work since sometime in May. Amazingly, the same conversation was repeated not long after with someone else. Today must be especially beautiful.
On my flight from Portland to Sacramento this morning, I sat on the left side of the plane. Most of the way, I looked out the window.
In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
