The Good Life - 11/02/2022 - Threading a path on a rainy morning



It’s raining hard at the beach this morning. That late autumn rain falling hard from enormous clouds rolling in from the sea. The rain won’t last, though the street is already a small flowing river. In fact, it’s already stopped. But the pavement is wet and the freeway will be a misty spray of weaving cars and trucks, red taillights and congestion. No good place to ride a motorcycle to be sure. I’ll work from home today instead—something I haven’t done since the move, and something I don’t want to do. I’d rather go to the office for work. But, I guess it’s time to figure out how to be very productive from the new place we call home.
