Alone time

I experienced a close approximation to my perfect day yesterday. I stayed in bed until a little after 10 am, finally lifting my body out of its warm down nest after getting off the phone with my friend Ingrid. I stumbled to the kitchen to make coffee and ate strawberries and the last unrotted pear. I read a combination of the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Utne while my sister’s friend Johann sang to me through the Sony speakers on the bookshelf. I got swallowed whole by an idea and spent about an hour at the computer, letting my creative brain send my fingers atappin’ across the keys. I happily lost another chunk of minutes looking at old family pictures and collaging the cover of a notebook. I finally showered at 2 pm and walked from my apartment down to the Ritz East to see Brokeback Mountain.

When I got out of the movie, it was dark and cold, and I caught a lucky bus just outside the theater’s courtyard to take me home.

Good day.

    It was terrific. The scenery is really beautiful and Heath Ledger (as everyone has said) was remarkable. I was also impressed by Anne Hathaway, of the Princess Diaries fame.

    That does sound like a dreamy day! Personally, I can only fantasize of such days since I have 2 children. LOL Also, saw Brokeback Mountain several weeks ago. What a wonderful move, and yes the scenery is breathtaking!

    I saw both Princess Diary movies, by myself, though I was in my apartment at the time.

    I think that might be a little creepy, but I just like Julie Andrews!
