by-gone spaces

I woke early. I ate cereal and skim milk. Prior to going to work. I addressed a letter to a bank with a small deposit. The cool weather turned less cool but no warmer than is seasonal. At lunch I walked in Garland's Bradfield Park. I took a lot of pictures of an Eastern Phoebe perched in a small tree. I liked my lunch of roasted chicken breast and wing and a fruit cup from Golden Chick. I liked the fruit cup because it had lots of sliced mango. I like little cubes of mango.

Driving to and from work, director Werner Herzog was interviewed on the local radio station. He discussed how some folks see him as a man who won't take no for an answer,but in fact he is told no numerous times a day during every shooting day.

After work I stopped at 111 Ranch Park in Garland. I like it on hot days because it has huge shady trees and is little-used. A feeding flock of American Robins hopped, skipped and flew about while I listened to the episode of the Ubuntu Podcast on which they read out a tweet I had written. The tweet was inconseqential.

I miss my old room in my parents' home. When my father remarried, they turned it into a period-appropriate room [the home is old], after having me take my things from it. Lots of things like old books and reference guides I could use to remember things got lost in that transition. Now both my mother and my father are gone. I suppose one cannot be 16 forever. But it was a good room in which to collect the books and things of 16.

I have two busy days ahead and a busy next week. But I am grateful for my days.
