She beckoned me over to sign a petition. I took her hand, and we danced tango on the sidewalk.
Every break from work is guitar-singing practice. Every break from guitar-singing is work. And they’re both fun!
Cuddling with a friend
Exploring Symphony Hall and helping friends produce the international squash tournament in Boston
Camping and hiking in the mountains with a friend
Late afternoon disc golf with a friend
Drinking coffee on the pond, watching the ducks, talking with a friend, gentle breeze across our faces; bonus points if it’s sunset.
Waking up in the tent in the rain, singing and playing guitar to my friend for the morning
A jazz-reggae band opening for the Jimmy Cliff movie, two doors down from my apartment, with my son
Sunday midmorning breakfast with an old friend, discovering how aligned we are, and riding my bike to get there
A quick nap in the park in Harvard Square, gentle breeze across my skin, the guitarist over my shoulder sings a lullabye
Morning coffee with a new friend and potential employer, discovering his high self-awareness, emotional maturity, and overall goodness
Lying on our backs, the new moon amplifies the stars, we count meteors and satellites among them, the stars so bright and numerous we can barely make out the Big Dipper and North Star
Herbal tea and people watching in the park in Harvard Square after sunset
We make a wrong turn, and a baby bunny greets us
A strong lingering hug
