Fig season is almost over and this post has been sitting in my draft folder for almost two months. The reason being that every time I sit down to write, I'm at a loss for words. I have no stories, nothing interesting to tell. Thankfully I have blog friends who have been encouraging me to just publish the dang thing.
So for today's post I want to tell you about my typical week. It's pretty mundane, but perhaps it will help us connect as something more than voices over the internet. Okay. Here goes:
Monday through Friday, during the day, I work on the dev team at a tech company in midtown Manhattan where I spend most of my time writing code. Almost daily I get lunch with my work friends, we sit around and shoot the shit. We usually eat in the cafeteria of our building but sometimes go out for lunch, which entails weaving through the bajillion people walking around time's square. Midtown is terrible. Phillip always complains that I'm a slow walker, but he's never seen me power walk down 40th street in a desperate attempt to get back to the office and away from the throngs of tourists.
Wednesday afternoons we have a half hour guided meditation (we get a lot of perks at work). The meditation is different every week, but always focuses on similar themes, my favorite being "mindfulness." We learn to slow down and be mindful of even the most mundane task such as washing your hands or making a sandwich.
Thursday nights after work I go to pottery class from 7 to 10 pm. I'm trying to make my own props! It's actually very difficult to make good looking bowls and plates that don't look like they were clobbered together by a 5 year old, hence why you have yet to see these props in any of my photos, but I still love it and look forward to it every week.
