Friday morning thoughts....
It's another lovely Friday (he said half in sarcasm and half in wonder). The hot water heater malfunctioned last night, but it was an easy fix and we have hot water for morning showers. The coffee maker acted screwy, but there is coffee in the cups. The weather report has words like 'Precipitation' and 'Thunderstorm' and 'Cataclysmic' in it, but right now there are wisps of blue sky in sight. The checking account has bumped a bit in the night, and that is always welcome.... although I'd like to be more welcoming :-)
Friday... and a long day at Mrs. Penn's awaits. Tomorrow as well, more of the same. In the quiet times at the shop I have been making a few pieces, and they are on the web site. That much has been enjoyable, and the customers too. Some really interesting people shop there, even the ones from New York.
Sunday, a day of rest, and my last free day before I morph into Teacher Man on Monday. Sunday.... I think a day at Baltimore's Inner Harbor will suit just fine. New sights and sounds in a wholly new environment. I can wish I had a few more free days, and perhaps take a room there for the night..... but something in me rebels at the thought of taking a hotel room alone for anything but business.
I've been thinking about people, as is my way, and how they maintain public images and private. The projected view carefully built and shown to the world, and the inner vision just as carefully hoarded away from prying eyes. Perhaps the relationship between two people can be defined by how far inside this created vision they allow the other to see.
I'll give it more thought, and maybe lay down said thoughts to words. We shall see.
Ya'll have a good Friday, and I'll be thinking of ya!
