132 days to go.

Another Late Entry:

I spent the morning at Cortona Cafe, eating the best waffle and working on my novel as I listened to Pepper Proud. And then I met up with a friend from out of town. She and I, despite many differences, have enough to common that we talk non-stop. We ate at El Camion for tacos and walked in the blazing heat afterwards. I left encouraged and I pray she did as well. We didn’t come to any conclusions about whatever things in our lives remain unresolved and difficult but I did feel spurred on. And that Spurred On feeling is a feeling that is lovely when it comes as it doesn’t come every day.

I kept thinking about the movie I saw last night. The movie was about a man with 24 personalities and would change according to the personality that was displaying itself. It’s a rather dark movie and I wouldn’t encourage you to watch it as it’s quite disturbing but the place of belief in his life was very interesting. He believed something so much that his body/his mind would change according to the belief. What if we all believed things so strongly? Without the disorder and craziness. What if you just believed you could do what you wanted to do? What if you just moved forward, talked forward, lived according to that strong belief? Believed in yourself, believed in others? I’m still working on the confidence thing but what if? What if you were exactly who you wanted to be and believed it? History is chalked full of those who believed and so they did.

Met up with J. I had told him I wanted to try new places so we went to the top of Thompson Hotel to the rooftop bar then walked towards the waterfront then Nordstrom then Sugar Hill. Sugar Hill is an Asian restaurant which I had high hopes for, believing it would be delicious. It was quite underwhelming. You know when you’re eating something and you really wish it was culturally acceptable to go back in the kitchen and give them some pointers? Yeah, it was one of those times. I don’t think they would take advice from me very well so we left without offering advice for filling their restaurant and went to Starbucks Roastery for desserts. I also bought a fabulous shorts romper for sailing tomorrow. We were going to go to a movie but the only seats left for the movie were in the front row. The last time I watched a movie from the front row was Spider Man with Buffy and David Smith in like 2006. And I swore I would never do it again. J doesn’t like to go see movies twice so he didn’t want to watch any of the others that were playing. I’ll see the same movie 10,000 times if I loved it or if 10,000 people want me to go with them to see it. So we left and watched Netflix’s The Great British Baking Show which we both love.
