A walk in the forest

I was talking to a friend recently about my memoir, and I told him that I had a few stories that included him that I wanted to get his approval on. He said, “I hope you’re not going to write anything bad about me!”, and you know, to my surprise quite a few people have said the same thing to me. It’s funny, because as I told him, I have no intention of writing anything bad about anyone. I see people all the time, especially in this age of the internet where people think they can say the most miserable horrible things without consequence, writing endless negativity about their own lives and projecting it out at everyone around them and I think to myself how sad in must be to live in such a bubble of anger and hatred. The reason that I’m not writing anything bad about anyone is that this is simply not how I want to live my life, it’s not how I want others to remember my life, and it’s certainly not how I want to remember my life. I want whatever legacy I leave to be uplifting and a thing of joy and light.

The weather was nice today, so we spent part of the afternoon at the public pool, which was relatively warm and incredibly full. No surprise I suppose since this is the third last day, and the last weekday, that the pool will be open for. We also took a long walk through the forest, where the two pictures below were taken, as well as many other adventures while jets from the airshow occasionally roared over our heads in formation streaming smoke across the sky. Tomorrow we’re off to the CNE with out of town friends who are visiting — it’ll be Nefarious’s third time this year, but only my first.

PS. I was excited to see my truck get a mention on BBG.

    I have my plans for my memoirs– but i’m not going to use the typical way to write about them. I figured out a way to make my memoirs known, yet end up making 3 – 4 books to boot.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
