I will write the title last. The simple and straight forward goals of yesterday were nearly a complete success. Today is off to a strong start to. Already (it's 11am...) two things on my 'not done' list were crossed off, moved to a new location, where they are more done than yesterday. Some of these to do items are reoccurring. Yesterday's long walk to the ocean felt wonderful, it was a beautiful time to be in the woods. The flowers were blooming in colors of orange and purple. My mind just went on a brief detour through the meaning of names. This is a Saturday, which means the routine is less predictable. There are a few givens like not going into lab, well really thats the only given I can think of immediately. Perhaps sleeping more ... or the importance of less planning. I suppose it might be a day for travel. Remembering how I've spent the Saturday (This!) over the past several years. It's not too hard. 1 year ago - Lightning In a Bottle outdoor camping festival 2 years ago - Harder to remember... Based on my photos, it looks like both gardening in my yard and working on school work. 2 years ago I was finishing the first year of graduate school. That ment working hard to get good grades in class. I was just learning the development cycle for App Engine. 3 years ago - Still lived in NY, had just been accepted for graduate school. We won a hackathon this weekend. 4 years ago - This seems so far back I do not remember. Maybe we traveled to visit family in upstate NY. Or went out to NYC. Maybe camping? Somewhere with no photos. Then. Before this there was life to, but the details, the clear resolution of my day to day activities. Those are lost to the past. The only things that remain are learned patterns from times long ago. I know things happened, but how I did them or why I did them are not as important any longer. Today I want to walk on the beach again. But the sun is missing.
