I’m feeling pretty centered lately. It’s kinda funny to see that sentence follow the blender of opposites in the preceeding entry. It is a few days later, ya know. As far as opposites go; it IS two opposing forces that make a spiral. Balance amidst chaos. Mmmmm. Yesterday here in Chicago, the winds got up to 50 miles an hour. It was awesome. The city was alive. Today as I drove down Clark Street, I saw an overturned bus stop little waiting station thing. The kind with the plexiglass on 3 sides then open on the other? It was overturned. It’s those kinds of things that spell chaos. Big objects upsidedown. Things that we are so used to seeing a certain way for so long- only to see them in a totally different one. It’s scary. It’s comical. It’s exciting. On a good day, it’s life.
My cat just jumped up on the back of my swivel chair. She does it all the time, and it really used to bug me, because it moves the center of gravity. The chair becomes a fulcrum, and her little body is able to throw the 150 pound me backwards. I’m tired now. It’s 1:03 A.M. by the way. There are things I want to work on right now, but I’m gonna respect myself and go to sleep instead. Tomorrow when I wake up I will do them. I love being tired when it’s time to go to bed. Slide right into the ‘ol rapid eye. Mmmmmmm. You know what I’m talkin’ about.
