but because maybe there is so much I don't know where to start,
and how to finish,
and what should be in the middle?
I have a bazillion thoughts swirling in my head,
and each one of them deserves its own moment of reflection.
But perhaps I will be here all day if I do so?
Some quick thoughts:
I don't know how much longer I will have my part time day job to go to.
I don't know how much more I can handle working it, yet at the same time it terrifies me a slight bit to not have it for steady income.
My parents house is on the market. The house my mother has lived in her entire life.
Has anyone ever had such a strong bond with a place, that t makes you ache a bit at the thought of not having it?
I am struggling with (perhaps overly) sentimental thoughts.
Can someone PLEASE make Canada Post go back to work!?
I got a belated birthday card yesterday - it was hilariously over the top with pop up cartoon characters and cheesy jokes.
Just what I needed :-)
I think it is high time I sit down with my journal and process everything. It's been a while since I made a date for the book and I.
PS. The crappiest day can be made better with Thai food, friends and a coconut mango boozy concoction.
I have decided this!
PPS - I am so darn proud of this city for coming together after such a horrible show of humanity on weds night. In case you didn't know, there was massive rioting here in Vancouver after the Stanley Cup finals. A group of anarchists that caused some trouble back when the Olympics were here last year used the Canucks loss to instigate a rumble that quickly turned into horrible rioting, looting and destruction.
What was at one point a happy supportive crowd, went from this:
There have already been over 150 arrests made, with the help of the public. A few turned themselves in, while others were turned in by employers and parents, and people all over the web have been using pictures posted on facebook and twitter to help the Vancouver Police.
As early as 4am that morning there were already 1000 good samaritans in the down town core helping business owners board up windows, cleaning up glass and making the streets safe again. Bless the good hearts I believe most people out there still have.
In the day following there were many a police car in the city found like this :
Riddled with thank you notes, and positive messages of hope for the future, and for justice for those who tarnished a truly amazing city.
