Simplest thing, there isn’t much to it, all you got to do is doodly-do it. I like the rest but the part I like best is doodly doodly doodly doodly doodly doodly DO.
I experienced A First this weekend. On Sunday morning I walked out my door, stepped onto my cross country skis, and skied through the ‘hood for awhile. That is something I’ve never done before! I’ve had skis but no snow, or snow but no skis, or snow and skis but things were already plowed by the time I got out there.
Swish, swish, swish! Even with the skis I was knee deep. It was fun to watch the ski tips break the thinnest intermittent threads in the snow surface from below, like stitches. And to watch the snow break around my knees, wooshing away on either side. The only boring part was how all the neighbors in a mile radius said exactly the same thing: “You’ve got the right idea.” Why would that exact sentence occur to everyone, regardless of age, gender, or ethnicity?
Two excellent blogs that have attracted my attention recently:
Topic Drift. I don’t know this person but her humor is off center in exactly the way I like best.
Grace Notes. Tara has a way with words.
