good morning, world...


This morning the sky is a blue such as I have never seen before. After a day of bitter, cold, cleansing rain the world I woke to this morning sparkled with frost - even the most minute detail somehow sharper in contrast to the blue of the sky.

I awake filled with hope today.

I plan to start graduate classes in January. The details are beginning to get a little slippery, though, and I'm not very happy with the school I've chosen. I find myself pondering the idea of putting it off until summer or fall semester at a different university - that's how great my frustrations have grown. But I've recently begun working at a little bookstore on the main street of a small town in the southeast and it's as though my heart has found its home. There's something wonderful about the delicious chocolately scent of books tangled with the rich aroma of coffee brewing in the little cafe inside. My toes curl with pleasure as soon as I walk in the door and I savor every moment that I am there. Who would have thought that work could bring such pleasure? After ten years in a career that made me deeply unhappy, I never would have imagined it. Perhaps postponing my graduate classes by a few months wouldn't be so terrible.

The friendship I wrote of a few days ago, the bitter misunderstanding, the loss I felt... Things were righted the next day and as many challenges do, I think it only made the friendship stronger. How great it is to have a friend who expects nothing more of you than laughter and comfort as you face life's challenges. Who understands your situation as well as you understand theirs. Who seeks to be a part of your world for the simple pleasure of it rather than building expectations and manipulating them into obligations. I wish I had more friendships like this.

It is a beautiful day today in my world.

I hope anyone else who reads this wakes to the same.

and thank you, captcha, for such a sincere response.

friendships, like love, often find you when you least expect it. I don't have many close friends, either. I moved around growing up, and continue to do so as an adult. Friendships end up casualties of the years and the miles. It's a sad thing, really.

one of the things i've grown to appreciate about the 'net is that it makes the world a smaller place and somehow we end up crossing paths with people we might never have encountered. like you and i - two strangers sharing kind words with one another - touching each other's lives, if even for a moment.

thank you for stopping in, and for taking the time to share your thoughts.

Julie....love those bookstores. I remember as if it were yesterday (though it was fifteen years ago) the first time I walked in the Strand in NYC. The musty smell of miilions of words set down by thousands of writers driven by the urge to express....

and friendships....ah....a constant source of inspiration and love and heartache and loss.

I've never been to the Strand but it sounds as though it must be part of my experience the next time I visit NYC. It's been more than 10 years since I last visited the city. Tragic for one who loves the theatre as much as I...

adultmusic -

I'm a standard account holder so I can't email through the site and I haven't downloaded the chat client (and don't wish to). Umm. I'll give you an indirect means of emailing me and from there I'll give you more direct contact information. Email me at AdultFriendFinder (note the two t's). I don't use that email address (or chat with that name) but I'll keep an eye out for your message and will give you direct contact info from there. How's that?
