Which certainly gave me time to reflect.
So I pulled out my marble composition notebook and jotted down a few plans and goals, some reflections on my gifts, and a few words about play and fitness.
Here are a few highlights from the parking lot of Islands:
- A plan: a website to celebrate, connect and inform mothers who are athletes.
- A goal: an electric Honda Element. I don't think it exists yet, but I'd sure like one. Or something like it.
- A gift: extrapolating the universal from the specific and the mundance.
- A reflection on play and fitness: even if I can't make it out to surf, increasingly, I'm able to do things that support my habit. There's yoga, pilates and swimming at the Y. There's a bike I love that just needs a tune-up and some TLC. And there's the possibility of a new pair of running shoes. In the past, I've hated running, but I've read a couple of books about it lately, and it's sounding really good to me.
Yeah, he said, and maybe you can get a surf company to thow in some money and sunglasses.
