I’m feeling kind of despondent today, and I think I’m allowed. As our new normal drags on, the old normal seems a distant past, and the future is utterly unknown. And I’m just having one of those days when no amount of trying to live in the moment or release expectations of the future or any of that is going to help. And I’m OK with that, because sometimes we have to have despondent days.
Fortunately, I have friends and colleagues who keep in touch from over the distances, and when they know I’m having one of those days when I’m forcing a smile, they’ll send something along that they know will make me laugh, the more ridiculous the better.
This was the something that was sent to me today, and I laughed out loud, which felt good. Feel free to give it a try yourself:
What are some things that don’t merely amuse you, but really make you laugh? (For me it’s cows, and I don’t know why. I find them so odd and bony and funny. Just thinking about them makes me smile, for some reason.)
My task today: finish recording video for an upcoming virtual orchestra project. I’m excited to be a part of one that’s going to be a little genre-breaking (done!)
