Yesterday was a beautiful day. I appreciate having a kitchen to cook in again. The simple things bring so much happiness. Not having any plans allows me to go with the flow instead of making the flow myself. I ended up getting a haircut with Erin, going to a new Greek food stand called The Nile, and hiking to the top of Atalaya. Then Kristin called me to watch a movie at night. We watched Deadman an old indie western movie with Johnny Depp and Iggy Pop. Then I woke up at 4:30 am this morning, picked Taina up and took off for the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque. It was amazing to see all the balloons against the blue sky. I should not have eaten that fried funnel cake though :) Now I'm making fish chowder and writing in my journal before heading over to a pumpkin carving party.
Plans keep getting canceled this week and new ones take their place. Its really a lesson in my relationship to the experiences that are happening more than it is about the experiences themselves.
