The promotion to Black Jacket is happening. I will make this happen!!
There are so many times I think about writing and then I don't. When I am walking, I am constantly thinking I should be talking into my recorder and creating my story. I don't. I don't. WHY? Obviously, because writing, as much as I love it, is not a #1 priority for me. I guess I would look at it as a side gig.
I would love it to be a 100% priority and dream about the day I can get up, look at the ocean, walk to the beach, and collect my thoughts before writing them all down.
Here are a few things I would love to write about:
1. Jackson as a construction worker. He leads me Canterbury where they are digging up an old road and creating a new one. He wants to walk right through the dirt which we do when the guys aren't there. He moves me forward so fast I have an endless pain in my left tricep (I actually worry about a tear). He walks with confidence while his sister Lily walks with reservation. She is timid and shy when we walk through these new areas. She lags behind and seems so uncertain.
2. Actually, let's bring it to Lily. I have been walking with friends lately and also with John. I have noticed Lily likes to walk in the middle of the road, but it only occurred to me yesterday why. I think she is protecting me and whoever I am walking with. If she is in the middle of the road and a car comes, she is my protector. I know this sounds strange, but it truly made sense yesterday. I kept her on a tight leash until we got to a sidewalk. Then she relaxed and walked in front of Joy and I. When we started for home, she went back to the middle of the street. She is my protector. My little angel.
I think this is the right number.
