Blue Tape Brigade --- Days 7/340. 341 &342

Walk: 1. Hood   2. Mostly British Film Festival (Edie, Looking for Lennon)  3. Cinema Club (STYX)
Distance: 1. 3 Rainy, Breezy Miles, yoga  2. 1.5 cold miles  3. 2  chilly miles, Yoga

  





Blue tape starts small, then gets bigger and bigger as Ciwt gets bolder and more ruthless. For the past few days Ciwt has been deep into her closets, bookshelves, under her bed and noticing again all the things that have been hiding in plain sight over the years.  All the while carrying her roll of blue tape, ripping it and sticking it onto all the objects that will be taken away by a couple of organizer/drill sergeants on Wednesday. 

Lots of her friends have done these deep clean outs over the years in the process of moving to new homes, but this is Ciwt's first experience with an 'almost moving' purge.  She's been pre-selecting with her blue tape in order to practice imagining her place wihout these objects/friends/identity/whatever they may mean to her.  How will it feel when there is empty space where they have been sitting all these years?  Free, open, airy, spacious she hopes, but it is still a bit unnerving.

So, Ciwt was at Trader Joe's a couple of days ago and could barely get in because of the crush of flowers and hearts everywhere.  Wah?? she thought.  Then she clicked, Valentine's Day was coming!
 Now today, here it is and what better place to celebrate it than the Cocktail Exhibition Preview of the de Young's new show MONET, the late years .

In A 2-Month Tizzy --- Day 7/330


Walk: Hood Errands Before Tech Appt
Distance: 3 Miles

Preparing for Techman Visit and Somehow Taking Selfie























Really, how does Ciwt's Tech Hero do it?  She's good at preparing a slew of questions between visits.  Then when he arrives, she's excellent at handing him the list of questions all neatly typed. "Oh, Good," he says. "Let's get started.  Explain what you mean by the first question.."

This is when Ciwt starts falling apart. Of course she has totally forgotten the circumstances of that question or how to reconstruct the problem she would like solved and/or how to explain it in a way that makes sense to him.  Then many minutes go by during which we try to arrive at some approximation of what she is asking him to work on.  Because he is nice and patient, he and Ciwt usually get there, and then he solves her problem.

"OK, now what about your second question....."  Question after Question the process repeats.

And the wonder is he Does solve them - every one - all the while remaining nice, kind, patient, even fun.  At that point Ciwt is always appreciative even while her brain is spinning in her head. 

This happens about every 2 months...
