What I want to say to you a week from today

Really, the idea of post dating and predating is not NEW-but it has always fascinated me. As an accountant, I was always recording things a month behind as if they were happening in real time. Hell, sometimes it was months and YEARS behind-accounting is not the exact science they would lead you to believe.

Reality comes in versions-the version you are given at the time, subject to chance with subsequent information. Sometimes reality would get so distorted, we'd create an alternate version, get the auditors to agree this alternate version was truly what really happened, then use that version to over write the "live version" of reality-to get reality to more closely match what REALLY happened, at least after further scrutiny. I really did spend YEARS going over the late 90's, early 2000's, and no wonder I got bored with the whole thing.

Today, the 17th I am propped up in bed blogging ahead and thinking about maybe trying to eat something for lunch. But, when THIS is released into the ether, I will be heading home after my 4 days in California with family. I'm sure my thoughts will be focused on home and this very bed. Today this bed is a bit confining, and yet a week from now it will be a destination spot.

Freaky how much of our lives are lived right in our minds, isn't it? I probably spend wayyy to much time in my own head, but I know people who never seem to visit. Cest La Vie.

Anyway, for the coming week, I promise more pictures and less words.

firstly i cannot imagine you as an accountant. secondly cut the crap...more pictures, less words...bullshit, give me da words too!!
thirdly, what scares me sometimes is how something we dread one minute suddenly becomes everything to us, and then vice versa...and
fourthly,living in my head is the best! it's the only place NO ONE can meddle or interfere or tresspass!!!
luv ya just as you are friend.

You were having a very thoughtful respite there in your cocoon. I hope you have a great time with your family. It is always wonderful to go away because it makes home seem so comforting.

Does anyone remember a folk song about "thoughts run free"? The title was German - I'll look it up. Either way, we love your words Deb - don't stop em coming.

Yours is one of the few blogs I enjoy even without pictures. I'm a visual junkie but I like a good writer too...and that would be you!

I'd like to know the first thing Oliver says when you get home. He may just be inetersted in whether of not you've brought back and california craps!

I hope the trip was what you needed it to be.

i like your words and i like pictures of your defiant cement blocks. most of all, i like the way you see things. a lot of times a sentence you say sticks with me throughout the day...
