Leap of Faith
No more fucking around, I have been here for 7 months cowering in the shadows of Robert Frost, Jack Kerouac and Mark Twain afraid to write for fear that I have the talent of a middle-Canadian louse. I am proactively enrolling in a course to check the pulse of writing in America. I’m terrified.
Terra Incognita: Holistic Wellness
PHYSICAL: Sorry it took me so long. I’ve been training for the SF regional dodgeball championships and I needed to save my typing hands for palming balls. If only Jack London or Robert Duncan had been there to immortalize Team Jo Mama’s valiant dodging.
EMOTIONAL: We got wifi and have stopped stealing it. I was so happy I farted accidentally.
Yosemite: Yosemite is just about the most gigantic gorgeous granite Inukshuk ever. That is one of the most humbling and beautiful views I’ve ever seen in my life and rivals that of walking under a giraffe in the wild. Go there!
Mt. Tamalpais: I know, you’ve never heard of it. It’s no Yosemite. But after 2hrs of hiking on a bad ankle some blessed sorcery brings me a German beer garden with picnic tables. An Oasis? Be in the moment. Get in touch with your inner Fräulein.
