Thoughts for today

We spend too much time on the freeways in Los Angeles.

My brain is crowded.

Vacation is long over.  

I like to have jelly beans in my office to sustain me, but I don’t have any.

Jelly Bellies.

There are many things that are not good for you. Like chocolate cake. 

But so yummy.

Or sleeping instead of getting up early to exercise. 

Sleep is yummy.

I do Pilates at 7 am on days when I am not teaching. 

And I run and go to the gym.

Still, I’m not skinny.

Which brings us back to the problem of chocolate cake.

I never eat cake. We never bake except for holidays.

It’s just that I eat. 

Los Angeles is hot.

We are always on a diet.

It hasn’t rained here in forever.

The fig tree seems to like the drought but the avocado tree does not.

We go camping in the redwoods tomorrow.

With seven kids in their twenties.  So there will be nine of us.

Not very restful.

When I’m there, surrounded by trees that have lived since Christ was born, I think there is a God.

When I am in Los Angeles, there is no God.

  1. Love it. As a former Angelino, I empathize!
