Vacation Journal: Entry #6
While on vacation I write down ideas in a small Moleskin notepad I almost didn’t buy because I wasn’t sure I was worth the $10. Then I realized if that was the bar I was setting pretty soon I’d be walking around pantsless because who am I that I deserve crotch coverage.
The above photo taken from the balcony of my parents’ beach place in Costa Nova. After watching it I jotted down in my notebook that I never tire of sunsets because I still think they’re the result of a complicated system of pulleys and winches and if I squint hard enough then maybe, just maybe, one day I will see how the hell the seagulls turn those cranks.
I now realize that the problem with always carrying around a notepad is that you record every single thought that pops into your head, only later to review them all and get the sickening feeling you may be the first person to suffer from cerebral edema at sea level.
And with that epiphany I celebrate being one year older today.
