There was a full rainbow over the lake when I arrived at my cabin. Truly a magical experience. :)

This would be the rough draft. What do you think: do you get it, or does it need something more? #starbuck

I had a doctors appointment this morning. My doctor is the type of physician who periodically travels between offices. In order to meet her schedule I decided to be flexible, and see her at an atypical location.

The building was located on a rougher side of town. The interior was visibly seasoned, almost exhausted. The architecture and accoutrements reminded me of my elementary school days — back in the early 90’s. The cabinets were a depressing beige color and countertops were a lack-luster pink. Everything looked tired, and had the fragrance of abandonment, even though it was still in use. It made me uneasy.

Buy why did it make me uneasy? I think it had nothing to do with the memories it recalled from me; I think it has to do with concept of habitual practice — the idea of getting used to something. The office was not up to the kind of standards I’ve grown accustomed to, so I was uncomfortable.

It’s a funny thing: getting used to something. It defines your comfort-zone, and it changes in waves across the span of your lifetime — just as you yourself change.

At one point I lived in far more deprecated conditions than that office, and I was happy.

Well I can’t grow much on my super shady porch, but after much trial and error I found out that I can definitely grow leafy greens. Here’s to you dad, I’ll always love you mucho mucho! :)
