I think my mental pabulum is being in a different place physically. It’s too easy to be in your routine at the same place you wake up every morning. It’s almost abnormal to go sit outside and read and write because I have to watch recorded Ellen shows and do laundry.

I’m dog sitting this week and I don’t know how to work the TV. It’s marvelous. I’m sitting on the back porch and am easily emotioned (patent pending). Perhaps it’s the overwhelming sunshine to cool breeze ratio or the trees that stand too tall to capture in a picture from where I sit with my half caf coffee. Because it’s half caf, I can have twice as much and I’m three cups in. Coffee serves as my favorite pabulum. The stories I wrote this morning on the porch are still in the making so they cannot be published here. I’m looking forward to the January to May US road trip and all the new places for intellectual nourishment. And all the new varieties of coffee!
