Today I saw the full moon rise over the lake. Watched the reflection of it grow. Saw the first star come out.

I saw a bunch of little fish swimming in the lake. I see that a lot.

Saw a big bird hanging on an air current... not even flapping, just riding it.

Yesterday I saw a pretty feather. I looked at it for awhile. They are such marvels, feathers. I don't have anyone to show it to so I put it back on the ground. I wish I had someone to show things like that to. Not a girlfriend. God knows I don't need that kind of trouble. Just a sensitive and gentle soul. Just someone who won't laugh at me for stuff like that.

I saw a rainbow today. Alas, no rain. At least for me. But, someone, somewhere...

We had one of those perfect Texas skies today. You don't get skies like this many places. Just between the coast and the plains... It's a sight.

This weekend I saw my friends. Heard them laugh. Listened to them talk about faith and doubt: One of them has faith, the other doubt. I'd love to give a little of the one to the other, both ways. I saw some new laugh lines and I rejoice that they really are from laughing. Ate some good food. Saw a mediocre movie. Told my best new joke.

That's all.

Today I watched a woman getting a pedicure. At first I just glanced out of the corner of my eye. By the end, I was staring at her gorgeous, corpulent, newly-polished piggies without shame. It reminded me of all the things I love about women's bodies: their curviness, how none of them are the exactly the same. I love how women like to feel pretty. Even I feel pretty today. It took nearly half a day at the spa but I do feel pretty.

Today I saw two birds doing a mating dance. It was really cool. I was amazed by it.
