It's been a while since I've written anything, but I find myself in the airport with free wifi and nothing else to do. How about another roll call of things I am currently thankful for? I might have done this before.
Topping the list: watching the moon set through the fog as I blasted down the Guide Meridian and I-5 very early this morning. Regina Spektor on repeat and completely empty roads until halfway to Seattle. Nothing but win.
Another cool thing: bacon. Everybody knows bacon is good- how about a whole pack for breakfast? I'd rate that well beyond good. Four guys, four packs of bacon, much of it flame-roasted over the campfire. And no backyard campfire, mind you: it was at Murray lake, at the top of the Coquihalla. We were living the dream, and it was an excellent dream.
Also very nice: pancakes for supper, with fresh blueberries. How about an after supper walk with Tank the dog and blackberries on the side of the road? I told that pug, "You know these things are edible!?" He just looked at me. Blue- and blackberries in the space of an hour!
And you know what else I appreciate? My car is still running. I bought it for under a thousand dollars in January with well over 400 000 kilometers on it. It's still going, remarkably. A trend that I hope continues.
