The birds they sang at break of day
"Start again," I hear them say
It’s so hard to just walk away (sigh)
The birds they sang, all a choir
"Start again" a little higher
It’s a spark in a sea of grey
Paul and I had a lovely little road trip yesterday, first to Wetiskiwin to the south of Edmonton, where we met an affable native fellow and a small red hatchback that we decided wasn’t for us after the window popped out when we tried to roll it down, and then to Alberta Beach to the east of Edmonton, where we placed a final bet on a silver-and-scuffs 2000 Toyota Corolla.
I ended up missing book club, unfortunately, due to the fact that we began our trip in the early afternoon instead of the morning, but since we reached the big weekend objective of being a two car family again I’m cool with that. As much as I've enjoyed trying out Uber these last few weeks, it's added a few stress points to have to juggle vehicles and appointments for sure.
I have been unfailingly productive for several weeks, but today I was so tired I ended up going back to bed for a 5 hour nap this afternoon and I’m still a bit out of it now, but more with it than I was earlier for sure - in fact, as it gets to midnight I’m waking up and becoming more productive again.
I've got a big week lined up. Tomorrow I have a few errands to run, packing for a dual-city trip, finishing my very first Last Resort class that’s being released this Tuesday, editing some photography and more. The biggest thing is informing pretty much everyone I know about what's happening with Last Resort. I may not have time to blog while I'm away in Regina with my friend, so I'll probably see blog again in a week or so!
