Sunny Ballard Sunday

Ah, the many-faceted pleasures of existence, among which community, vigorous movement, eating, and sunshine are high on the list. Essential to the human animal, extinguishing neither existential angst nor impulses toward violence and vileness, but tempering them, perhaps.



I’m lucky to live in a temperate climate where chaos is kept at bay by a functional (albeit clunky and inequitable) economy. I get to go to farmer’s markets where good food abounds in glorious profusion (donuts! Local smoked salmon! Squishy handmade raspberry marshmallows!) I am blessed with a sound and strong body which enables me to stride purposefully and caper joyfully.

I am troubled that not everyone has it so good. None the less, I am profoundly thankful.
