Five hours

When my heart was grieved
and my spirit embittered,
I was senseless and ignorant;
I was a brute beast before You.

Yet I am always with You;
You hold me by my right hand.
You guide me with Your counsel,
and afterward You will take me into glory.
Whom have I in heaven but You?
And earth has nothing I desire besides You.
My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.

—Psalm 73:21-26

Want the truth of this to be true of me, to transform my heart and soul and mind and strength.

Been at Victrola for five hours now. Warm, moreso than I'd choose, but good to know that there are some who enjoy this kind of weather more than I. Had planned to do some reading and writing, the classic coffee-shop-introspection things, but instead got sidetracked here and there. This gallery of 1974 Weight Watchers cards is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Was doubled over laughing to the point of tears, which admittedly might seem odd when one is alone at a coffee shop.

May have inadvertantly blown off getting together with a friend this afternoon: Erick and I tried to make plans to meet here at 15:00, but he was going to call me back at home. I haven't been home to check and haven't bothered to check the voicemail, but I was here. No worries if something got complicated; I wasn't up for making this day any more complicated than it needed to be.

One of the baristas just gave me two CDs of his music to check out. This record label stuff makes me smile sometimes.

    Yesterday was largely eventless, which is what I'd like (and very well might need) more days to be. Beautiful springtime weather was a nice bonus,…

    So, if the whole deal with leap year is that we get an extra day, why do I feel weeks and months behind at all times? That's clearly much more about…
