Pulling out a plum

The question here is: can this post be written by thumb upon my mobile phone.
The answer, clearly, is: yes.
Which only leads to this: now what do I write about?

It was something I hadn’t quite considered when I opened the browser. But, let’s be honest, when have I ever been a loss for something to say?

My day has been packed. I am working to exercise my brain in new ways, using long untouched synapse relationships in the attempt to utilize that organ that offers higher level thought. I would prefer to be eating chocolates, but that doesn’t seem to be on offer.

At this moment in time, I am watching my youngest, Andrew, cavort and tumble around the mats in his Little Gym class. Nearly 14-year old Emma is sitting by my side reading Goldman’s The Princess Bride. I left the teen taller than me, Ian, at home raking the leaves. In the Missouri autumn, this is a job for the likes of Paul Bunyan. Just so long as he carries a proper sized rake.

And all of this leads me to what? Nothing, exactly.

Or everything, if contentment is the goal.

  1. That not being able to stretch brain synapses by eating chocolate thing is such a bummer.

    C’s “Spanish” name is Inigo… from The Princess Bride. Inigo Montoya! đŸ˜‰

      And now I forever pledge my love to C. I am always and forever the number one fan of Mandy Patinkin. His portrayal of Inigo was absolutely amazing. Poor C will have to live with this legacy and now, all my adoration by association.

  2. Now did you really type that entire post on your phone?!? Wow! And I so love Miss Em’s for reading the Princess Bride. Get her to tell me what part.

      I did indeed type every word of the post on my phone. But not this comment. I am happily back at a keyboard for this. Thumb typing is a wee bit tiring.

    Can’t believe anyone has small and nimble enough thumbs to type and I wonder if the phone was designed by a Darwinist to help people remember the importance of this opposable appendage.

    Onto the Zen thing/Jenn thing, I am happy that you find contentment in the common. Sidhartha found it too. I also try to find that womb of contentment in the everyday messiness of life. Glad you found it.

    Here’s to hoping we all find it again tomorrow.

      I like the idea that my thumbs are serving some sort of renewed purposeful existence.
      And the zen thing is a lovely thought. Easier said than done, but once done? Ahhhh….
