I’m feeling slightly grey; as is the sky, as is English Bay from my peek-a-boo view window in this small and bright apartment. I spent an hour or so trolling through job websites, hoping that some one-liners would catch my eye. But then, as now, I find that my eye keeps wandering towards the window. Rain. Rain falling as it has been falling for days; for months it seems. Wettest April, Wettest May. It is not easy to find encouragement in this. But then again, to find encouragement, one must invest in looking for it. All I’m looking for is sunshine.
While I look forward to having more exciting things to share, today, I will list and appreciate my tiny accomplishments. The bathroom is clean. The huevos rancheros I made this morning were delicious. This green chai tea that I’m currently sipping is super yummy. I am happy to have deep conditioned my fro. I combed olive oil into it today as a means of having a little experiment in “sheen”. I’m looking forward to seeing my best friend today, as I know it will be full of raucous laughter.
Until then, I am immersed with the sound of the rain. It falls in waves that drop hard, then soft. It crashes, then it dances.
