It’s Wednesday morning. I’m sitting here at my computer with a cup of coffee, Finney is curled up on my lap and purring, and today the window is closed because it’s chilly.
I start every morning this way and it’s quite pleasant and serene. I ease into the day slowly. So! What is up for today?
– Call Bell Labs.
– Call Bomb Squad.
– Write ghost pitch (for a local magazine).
– Go to the gym.
Is that a perfect day or what?? I cannot believe I get to live a life which calls for getting in touch with people at Bell Labs and the Bomb Squad. (Apparently I like calling places that begin with the letter “b”.) I love my life. Mostly. Okay, one part I’ve been a miserable failure at (relationships!) but what the hell. A lot of people suck at that.
I’m also going to try to get to the movie Stranded: I’ve Come From A Plane That Crashed on the Mountains. It’s a documentary based on the rugby team that crashed in the Andes in 1974. I’ve read the book Alive close to a billion times. I can’t get enough of this story.
The picture is another from my Vermont fog series. I was up and out before the inn I was staying in started serving coffee and breakfast so I took pictures while I waited.
One thought on “Every Morning I Have a Cat on Me”
I’m quite sure I will have to wait until it comes out on Netflix (no independent cinema in these parts) so give us a review after you go. I was obsessed with that book myself for awhile. On the topic of book obsession, have I already recommended The Hot Zone by Richard Preston to you? I read it years ago but was totally absorbed by the whole thing. I think it would be right up your alley 🙂
Enjoy your day!
