I would’ve spoken sharply with the kid *and the mom* if she had the nerve to tell me that I should let her kid play with my hat. I feel like I’d karate chop them.

"them". You'd consider karate chopping a kid. Or someone else.

Every time, I think you've left the dark-side ...

Wearing: dil’s handmedown 20 year old navy adidas loungers (love!), soft cotton navy-ish t-shirt depicting Jack O’Neill’s Fishing Division, nude macramé slip-ons, son’s most awesome handmedown charcoal hoodie—some post-gothic sentiment drawn on back. Laughing. I’ve forgotten. Gonna take it off and look.
hearing: CNN news report about a wife shepherding her children to a safe Ukrainian border, having left her husband to fight the Russian army. No longer laughing.
eating: Digesting 🍳
drinking: Black coffee.
doing: Trying to come to terms with my ‘terror scrolling’ and trying to plan an outing to clear my head. I’m surprised at how consumed with sadness I am about what’s happening right now. Eyes are wet almost all the time. Not sure why this war steps forward as personally more upsetting. Yemen is no less horrifying. Maybe because I’ve felt hope watching the Zelensky story—and I feel sure I’m soon to see its end—and bigger than the loss of this hero, it speaks loudly to the hope of authentic self-determination for the rest of us.
feeling: sad
wanting: good to prevail

Wearing: longish black tunic, too short-sleeved for this 50 degree F restaurant, but perfect for the nice summery weather outside if I live to get back out there. My awesomest non-wholey jeans, my beige cloth deck shoes.
hearing: Male patron recounting his recent heart attack at length to the waitress who has not brought my beer.🤨.
eating: Grilled shrimp!! Caesar salad.
drinking: Definitely not my beer.
doing: Listening to how god drove this guy’s truck and was answering the phone for his wife. As the minutes pass, I begin to understand that this man has been quite impressed with god’s curbside and phone wrangling assistance and now will not complete a sentence without mentioning god. Two friends have called this guy during his lunch, prompting this guy to recount the exact story that he shared with my waitress. If there is a god, he’s having a fun Sunday ******* with me. Tipping one to Harvey and Tabitha’s buddy god.
feeling: relaxed, resigned, concerned, and blessed
wanting: to see my daughter
