Just another ordinary day

Orlando sunrise
Was compelled to climb out onto the roof.

 

Yesterday, a Saturday, began like every other ordinary day.

Like the 2,500 previous (and consecutive) days, i was up early to start the morning routine.

This includes two hours of reading, praying, thinking, and writing.

Along comes the predictable sunrise, but this one was different.

It compelled me to crawl through a window onto our roof.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Dear Son

Dear Son, in the stunning presence of nothingness

father and son bike ride
Last night we spoke about Halloween (in three days) being the kick off for ‘running’.

 

Dear Son, in the stunning presence of nothingness, with a Big Bang Theory rerun on the TV, last night became one of the best nights of 2015.

Why?

Because you and i talked about ‘nothing’ for an hour.

We both wound up lying on the floor just chatting about ‘life’.

Unforced.

Unhurried.

No agenda.

And i remember it like it happened 10 seconds ago – that moment when i closed the laptop, set it aside, and slid off the couch onto the floor.
