Hi guys. I’m back, does anybody care? I know I’m a slacker. I been hiding out for about two weeks. Not exactly sure what my problem is. I’m not confident I’m ready to be back and thrill you with my excellent stories and eloquent prose, but sometimes you gotta improvise.
Someone sent me this picture early this morning via text message. That’s a hermit crab without a shell. So, he’s living in a glass jar. I hope he knows not to throw any stones. Sometimes you just gotta improvise.
Some days life is like that. Everything familiar seems to have disappeared and you’re not sure how to find your way home. Sometimes you might want to scream ‘Oh, you don’t know the shape I’m in’. Then, somebody calls you up, sends you a text, email, or the best of all, a letter or package in the ‘old-fashioned, real mail’, and ‘out of the blue’, you start remembering how to do life.
I know I promised to post my ‘100 people you need to meet before you die’ list, on Fridays, but for today, this is the best improv I can come up with. Stop by next week and I’ll tell you about another one of my 100, a REAL cowboy, my friend Tom Robinson. Until then, when life gets you down, try to remember to hold your breath, kick for the surface, listen for the phone, and check your mail.
