It’s beautiful outside; warm, gentle, birds chirping, and eating at the feeders. There are hundreds, thousands, millions of hummingbirds outside and they decorate the trees with their emerald and fuschia flashes. The vines have grown so much that they’ve formed the green walls I hoped that they would, and are cascading down in beautiful waterfalls. The mandevilla is blooming red on the outdoor shower, the cherry tomato plants have found a new lease on life now that the days are gentle, and I have a handful every day.
In addition to a lot of wonderful emails from people today, I got a terse little note telling me that if I choose to be a business person then it is my obligation to keep my mouth shut about politics and religion. And people are apparently griping on some Internet forum (now that lead-in could be about anything) that the book is taking too long, or that because I made beautiful kits to support the press run that somehow I am untrustworthy. It’s hard to comprehend any of it, but these sorts of things are exactly why I look forward to not dealing with so many people who don’t know me.
I’m very transparent in all of my affairs; I’m sure that’s unusual, but I can’t get inside the heads of every unhappy person on the planet.
I can’t wait to ditch them, the suspicious, grumpy unhappy people of Earth. I only want the happy ones. Also, Mitt and Ann Romney- my dream is that as of Wednesday night I never see or hear from them again. What a dream come true THAT would be.
I’m …this close… to having a printout in my hands. So exciting!
One more day of work ought to do it.
