ironically, as soon as I typed in that bit about no distractions and the hearty hum of my computer? The power in the house crashed (for reasons unknown to me right now but probably having to do with tempting fate), everything snapping off abruptly, frightening me outta my skin. whoa. major hiccup! Fortunately I had just saved and when the power came back on ten minutes later, I just picked up where I had left off. oh, and has anyone noticed that it’s all 1 2 3 today, the date being o1/23 ?! things like that thrill me a little bit. I always get a little happy leap in my belly when I glance at the clock and it says 12:34 … it’s like all is right with the world, everything is perfectly aligned in that moment and I feel unreasonably reassured. And exceedingly clever for noticing in the first place.
