2/30 – Santa Ynez in the Good Land

So, some friars walk into a Starbucks —

“Does this have caffeine in it?” One brother asks with a smile.

“Have you seen the light of Christ?” Another asks.

“..one of us is from California, and then we have New York, Florida, New Jersey…”

“I think the practices of the Buddhist monk are beautiful.” Nods another in conversation with a water colorist.

“I believe in coffee.”

1/30 – Missed Connections

p4p

You were the surfer in shorts concerned that the water was cold and I was the woman going to watch the sunset at Campus Point. You had a nice smile and thought I went to UCSB.

I hope you caught at least one wave before bailing.

The sunset was perfect.

Usually I don’t participate in writing challenges, but I don’t know – the 2017 poetry month challenge felt good for this year. Especially as a way for me to document my new times in California.

Currently – 2/17

So proud of my goodgood podcast-turned-streaming media platform boys.

listening :: On Being and the new era of The Splendid Table (soon) ;

reading :: Mockingbird: I Can Explain and A Bee in Her Bonnet;

eating :: iced coffee and a leftover bagel;

making :: empty boxes be not-so empty and marinated chicken (yay, freezer clean-out);

thinking :: about switching up my WordPress theme (there’s a lot of un-editable theme features that bug me), on wrapping loose-ends, my new job, and starting the address/accounts change process;

loving :: these pens (I found one in the library last week and I’ve been in love since) and Whole Foods iced matcha;

looking ahead :: to the next 14 days being next-level bonkers. Tally-ho!

What are you guys up?
