Sometimes I go to the library and I look at the books and I think wow, I’ve read all of these books. And then I just look at them a little more and remember what I love about each book and it feels like there’s a million little movies of each book playing in my head and it’s just a really beautiful feeling.
It has been a very good last few days.
Saturday night was amazing. I went to a poetry reading at this gorgeous little fancy building with a wooden deck sticking right out over the bay. There weren’t enough chairs for us to sit, so we listened to the poetry from reclining patio chairs while looking out at the bay and watching the planes. The airport is 2 miles directly behind us, so there is a steady stream of planes coming really low over, which is fun to watch. I saw a manatee and the sky was beautiful. And there were free drinks and food. After, my friends and I went out of our way to go to the beach and eat at Umami burger.
Easter was relaxing, but kind of boring. I woke up at 6 and went for a really long walk which was so pleasant. I got iced coffee on the way back and everyone I walked by was in a good mood and I got to stare at tons of fancy houses and it was just a perfect morning. It is even slightly chilly at that time! There are still jacarandas and shaving brush trees and gold trees in bloom and there are so many amazingly huge banyans in that area. Gorgeous. Then I just did homework the rest of the day.
Last night I went out for a super late dinner with Kevin and his new friends from the film he is working on. They’re all really nice and goofy and interesting people.
Soooo I am happy. Socializing kind of exhausts me, but it is usually worth it :)
