The water is a deep green-blue, it is visible from my balcony and despite the fact that I must be at work at 6am tomorrow, I am excited. I am, in fact, a whole lot more excited about work these days than ten years ago. I feel like it is a really good plank, when everything is burning, but in a good way. I don’t know what is going to happen next month, but for now, I am going to do this job really, really well.
The EMDR continues. Every 6-months or so. Whenever I can muster the courage. But how amazing it is to have more mental space. Like moving into a bigger apartment or house, I have the space to mentally spread out now. I have more room to make bigger things happen now that the supercomputer in my head is working on my behalf. It is enough for me to feel free of the past.
We watched 27 Dresses last night. My wife turned to me and said, “Do you not watch Romantic Comedies?” Not unless they are subtitled, foreign numbers, the closest I think may be Y Tu Mama Tambien, and if you really think about the subject matter, it is not romantic, but it is cathartic. Not the same, and so we watched that and the Wedding Planner.
I rarely get my wife along for business trips. It is nice not to be able to see things together. I see a lot of great stuff, but it’s just kinda meh without the one you love.
