8:18
I am a professional listener.
Ansel Adams once said, “Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter.” I just had one of those moments.
Viewing someone from a room away evokes melancholy.
Sometimes I just need to be reminded of the bigger picture.
At 8:18 tonight, David Day and I are driving the streets of Scottsdale and feel trapped.
Finishing my call, I look up at the top-heavy mop heads of the cluster of palms above me.
It is the color of exuberance.
The seasons tell our story wrong.
In the midst of bland Corporate Land, the battered, vintage arch is unexpected.
For what are you working? What will be the sum total of your career?
Sometimes it’s hard to go to street level.
Alone in a city, with an evening to myself, I am wandering.
When I finally notice the old man, he is looming over me with his arms raised over his head.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once called enthusiasm, “leaping lightning.”
