Sometimes I just feel sad. I can't identify why, it just comes upon me and I have to live with it until the sadness leaves. The same is true with joy but with joy I don't want it to leave me. today it is sadness.
Went to the calamari festival down at the plaza in the late afternoon. Crowds of people. I spotted a chair and sat down and the chair collapsed to the ground with me on it. I was dazed but then OK. Two security guys with radios came to help me get up. the chair was placed back up. I suggested they remove it before some other old lady falls down.
when I eat at Full Moon restaurant in downtown Monterey I always order the same dish, sweet and sour pork lunch. I have tried several times to order something else but I am disappointed. Today I had sweet and sour pork lunch and was satisfied.
I am really tired of watching television, having people on the screen just go on and on. The noise projects from that glaring window to a world I am no longer interested in. So why am I still paying comcast. I am now enchanted with silent reading, books, magazines, stories. I should be paying the library.
From my bedroom I can hear the army Language School morning bugle call to wake up at 7am. I can also hear the 5pm and the 10pm calls. Sometimes the city has asked the military to turn down the volume but they don't. They want the whole town to know they are here. So everyone in town can hear the bugle calls.
Sat at the Pacific grove coast line. Saw a raft of sea lions splashing in the distance beyond the kelp forest. People, photographers walking the dirt trail taking pictures of the vivid purple ice plant blooms Birds fling low to the water. good day.
Parked on the wharf for an hour this morning and just breathed in the ocean air through my open windows. Watched people walk by. A sea lion pup inched it's way up the sand while people stood around. Then it turned around and went back down to the water.
We met at Point Lobos this morning, 19 of us. We wrote and walked and read to each other and then packed our stuff up and left. what we brought home were our writing and memories of this beautiful park.
Went to an afternoon showing of GINGER AND ROSA a British coming of age story of two young girls. A intense wonderful film that is very provocative. I recommend it. it is good to see a film made by a woman about women's lives.
A huge wind came up this afternoon and knocked out our electric power for several hours this afternoon. I was not prepared. I was glad to have the big blue PG&E trucks drive up and fix it whatever it was. Lights are on now.
