Oh today was goooood. I mean, really good. I’ve been in the creative zone all day long.
It all started this morning when I woke up to find out I had been featured in this sweet little blog that is written by one of my very favorite editors (he corrects me all the time). Feelin’ just a little special, I made it to work 20 minutes early — just enough time to take these super funky shots.
Sure, once again I fumbled with the buttons and switches and hoped for the best after each shot, but somehow I knew today was going to be better.
So I went to work and words just seemed to flow with every task I tackled. I moved from one copy job, to the next, to the next — and even had this crazy moment of inspiration and puked out a damn good first draft of a poem on paper in less than 20 minutes.
Every co-worker I talked to was cool and fun and friendly, and when I chatted with my boss I felt like we were totally on the same page, and we were all like, “He-ey!”
And in the evening, right before yoga class, I couldn’t help but eat this chicken, walnut, grape salad concoction, even though I knew it was risky. Sure enough as soon as I sat down in the car to drive to class at The People’s Yoga, I felt the gas building up and instantly I thought, “Oh fuck!”
But I stopped myself and instead I thought, “I got this!” And sure enough, I did.
I mean at one point I found myself balancing my thighs on my forearms in some weird twisty arm balance that shoots your butt up in the air while holding some weird mid-air abdominal crunch — and not even a whisper of air escaped me!
Total yogic success!
Oh! At noon, my awesome editor friend (who happened to bring his smiley face ukulele to work) went on a little walk with me and let me try, try, again to capture his portrait. And in the middle of all my fumbling I hit a button that suddenly allowed me to do all of these cool things, and made everything make a whole hell of a lot more sense. I even think I got a couple of decent photos out of the session.
Like I said, today was goo-ood!
