I have no opening line here. Usually when I begin to write something – I have the first line formed and once that is down, the rest tends to come â€” but right now – I have no opening line for this story and so I have no where to go with it.
I could talk about the day. It is beautiful. Sunny, clear blue sky. The thermometer outside the kitchen window reads 90Âº F as the sun bears down on it. But really itâ€™s a fine 56Âº. The sun makes it super lovely.
This morning when I headed out for the church of the holy sunrise, there were no clouds in the sky. A clear day makes for a less than stunning morning sky, so I thought Iâ€™d take the opportunity to experiment and find a new view. I drove over to the other side of town where I thought the view would be different and still lovely. I was right. I parked in the parking lot of what used to be a Jr. High School, but now is offices for the labs as well as a credit union. I walked behind the buildings and was overcome with a memory of practicing cheer leading there. Funny how somethings are totally gone until they are suddenly there.
I realized that if I am to explore sunrise views in the morning, I really should get dressed before I leave the house. Heading out to my standard canyon view, itâ€™s fine to slip sweat pants over my pjâ€™s, throw a hat and coat on and head out the door. But today I met quite a few people out for their early morning practice as well and I felt a bit like a bag lady, layered up in my fashion compared to the sleek runners in their morning gear. Oh well.
Dad had a massage schedule this afternoon and is meeting a counsellor later so I thought Iâ€™d take in another matinee to get out of the way this afternoon. I walked up to the movie house (do they still call them movie houses)? Anyway – I walked up there only to find out they donâ€™t show a matinee on Mondays and Tuesdays. No biggie, rememberâ€¦ it is 56Âº and sunny, so I just kept walking.
The internet fix it guy came this morning and now â€“ dads house is up to modern standards with a Wi-fi hub and easy access to the big world wide web from any room in the house, and I can say I practiced writing today.
It is days like this, that I’m grateful very few people read my posts and I really hope tomorrow I have an opening line.
