Greetings from my father’s house. While I am still soooooo grateful for zippy modern conveniences like heat and running water, operating from a different home base has left me a bit discombobulated and less efficient than usual. So I will probably be MIA for a couple of days this week.
Only one microbravery for today: two women were chatting on either side of me in the grocery store checkout line. I wanted to add something to the conversation but felt shy. Hard to believe if you know me in real life and know just how loud I can be, but it’s true. I get shy sometimes.
Anyway, after two abandoned attempts to join in, I finally came out with it. Did it change the world? No. Did I make two instant friends? No. But I had a smile, felt an enjoyable (if superficial) connection with two other people and showed myself enough respect to voice my ideas.
Told you it was a little thing.
Hope everyone still out of power is keeping warm and safe.
