A Day in the LifeJuly 1, 2005
It's summertime now and the temperature consistanty hovers around 93 degrees everyday. Even my early morning runs are no retreat from the heat --- most mornings it's like running in a greenhouse, but it feels good to be pushing blood through this body that sits in front of a computer all day long.
The family's on summer schedule, so most morning it's just me moving around the dark house getting ready for work while everyone sleeps in. I like this luxury for them. Somehow I feel I can live vicariously through their free-form days of going to the pool or the park, or maybe meeting friends for ice cream even when I'm at work.
Sometimes when I come in late from work and the boys are already asleep, I will sneak into their rooms and watch them. When I kneel down to kiss their sleepy faces in the dark, I can smell the sunsceen and pool on them still and I can imagine the many adventures they had that day.
As for me, I'm spinning the usual plates: teaching some Flash courses at Emory, recording some new songs and occasionally writing in the in between moments of my commute. I'm looking forward to the holiday weekend and getting a chance to play with my boys. I love this picture of Ian and I. We took it in the backyard a couple of weekends ago. I love it because if you look into our eyes, you can see we came from the same place.
