This day began with a long and complicated conversation with a new friend. After sharing stories and a little gossip, we walked out of the coffee shop into pouring rain. She had brought an umbrella. Mine was in the car. These things happen. After running an errand I returned to my car to find that the lights had been left on and the battery was, without a doubt, dead. I am not unfamiliar with this situation. Dead batteries and keys-locked-in cars form a repetitive pattern in my life. Almost always a warning to slow down and, you know, recharge the battery. Thankfully, I was warm and dry. AAA sent a nice young man who jump started the car in a flash. Let us hope it starts tomorrow morning.
My finding for today is that not every blog entry needs to be intense and deep. Sometimes we can give it a rest.
