And we're back! From surfing in Lanzarote and Tenerife. 2/7 of the Canary Islands that rose from the sea...
First, the news is true! We finally get to leave Wooster Street! The new tenants signed the papers on Friday. We'll be out of here completely come Wednesday of this week. :) A celebration is in order!
Ah, what a word. I've been contemplating it a lot lately. Even the sound of it—when broken up into syllables, and given a bit of snake-tongue at the end ("ex"-"cesssssss")—I suddenly picture the image of a water glass being filled to the brim, and then spilling out and onto the countertops... and then pouring pouring pouring off onto the floor like a mini waterfall. Spills...of something off balance. Spills of too much.
Where yesterday's ideas end and where today's ideas begin is right here: on the feeling of newness, but also with a balance of gratitude. We need both, people.
