Most photos I post on this site are intended to be sexy or funny or upbeat in some way, but sometimes I like to post photos with a more serious tone, like the ones I’m putting up today. When I look at photos like the ones I’m posting here this morning, I’m always curious about why the boy picture dis feeling so low. Did he flunk an exam, lose his job, or break up with his boyfriend. There’s no telling, is there?
I woke about 6:30 this morning, feeling wide awake. It was still dark outside, so I spent a half hour on my computer, tending to correspondence, until the sun was up, and then I took a three-mile walk on the beach down the street from my house. I had to wear a hoodie on my walk because a strong breeze was bowing out of the north and the air temperature wasn’t all that warm. The gulf was churning like the inside of a washing machine; it was way too rough for anyone too swim in.
When I got home I made breakfast and a pot of coffee, and then I got to work on my novel-in-progress, which is now at 24,000 words. It’s coming along nicely, and even though I haven’t worked on it for a week (due to my travels) I jumped right back into the story. I wrote for 2-1/2 hours, and now I am done for the day.
Once I finish this post I will spend an hour or so doing a bit of yard work. We’re hosting a Cinco de Mayo party here on Saturday and I want thing to look nice for our guests. After lunch I have a doctor’s appointment for my routine, six-month checkup, and then I’ll get a badly-needed haircut.
Have a great Thursday, everyone.
