I’m miss writing and running. My writing is a direct result of my running has been lacking because running has been lacking.
Pick the sore body part – foot, knee, ankle, hip – I got beaucoup of them.
But onto the subject of today’s nonsense.
To condense a long story I found myself at a church last week which is located in a pretty rural community. I was there for an evening band rehearsal and what with it being a gentle summer evening and being in the middle of nowhere I decided to leave my car unlocked with all the windows rolled down. I had my guitar with me in the building – What was there to steal?
Once upon a time I lived in an even more rural setting where on Friday afternoons after work when I arrived home I could leave the car unlocked with keys in the ignition and on Monday that VW would be right where I left it.
It was a simpler time, I was a simpler person and my needs and possessions were few.
This morning I stopped at the local coffee emporium about which I have written about on these screens many times.
I grabbed a cup of coffee and made my way out to the patio where I could see my car with open windows in all it’s unlocked glory. It is a simple pleasure to be sure.
Leaving the car open and unlocked is not a habit I plan to cultivate but I kind of like the possibility of being able to do just that.
The car thinks it’s pretty cool too.
