Three Beautiful Things 06/27/2007: Crayons, Pins, Trust

1. Tara and I had a good session over her research essay. She brought Zach and Ashley with her and when they got a little tired of waiting for their mother, I pulled out a couple of large sketch pads and the bag of crayons, charcoal sticks, pastels, and other art supplies I keep in my office and they went to town. When Tara and I were finished, they weren't and these two restless kids who wanted their Mom and me to hurry up, suddenly were a bit dismayed they had to leave!

2. I hadn't bowled for about seven years. But Russell is getting married on 07/07/07 and wanted his bachelor party tonight and wanted to bowl and then go eat Thai food. I was pretty rusty the first line, but as I worked up a little sweat and got a little lubricated, I began to feel myself get into a little groove and started knocking more pins over.

3. A very positive sign the medication is working: The Deke had a family matter weighing on her mind and trusted that I would be engaged in a conversation with her. It had been a while since we had such a talk. She's trusting me.

Bowling as a bachelor party. Does the stripper keep the score? I gotta party with you guys.

The good news with bowling is if you are really rusty they have those bumpers now that fit in the gutters so your ball has to go down the lane. It worked great when we took our young students on a field trip to the bowling alley.

Were there pens in the gutters? Just pulling your leg. . .said you knocked a few pens over. . .LoL.

Glad the meds are working. It feels good to be engaged in life - (I was thinking about how great I have been feeling lately). For those of us who sometimes live in the shadows of depression - There is great joy in the ordinary.

I am happy for you, too!

I got a kick out of your comment PID, and I corrected my typo...I'm glad you pointed it out...I should write these things when I'm about to go to sleep!
