I’m not going to lie. I’m concerned about the state of the planet. Just read news to find out what’s going on. It’s kind of a mess.
Maybe don’t read the news so often. What if I were to spend significantly less time staring at my iPhone? What if I made more physical art than digital art? What would my life be like if I did some writing with a pen on actual paper?
I can’t change the world, but I can change the way I respond to it.
Yesterday the hubby (Ernie) and I had a post-Christmas lunch with his sister and her husband. We went to Culver’s which is new to Bloomington. The franchise is owned by former NBA player, John Laskowski. He was there sweeping the floor and doing other food service activities. Ernie recognized him. They talked for a minute too.
After lunch, we decided to go to a coffee shop on the square called The Inkwell.
It’s a nice spacious place with a hipster charm. It’s the type of establishment where people like me go to write a novel.
There was some art on the walls. I should have asked about it.
They make a ’homemade’ pop tart at The Inkwell. I had the cinnamon and brown sugar variety and a cafe mocha to drink. The pop tart was tasty, but I would have preferred it warmed up a bit.
I don’t go to enough places like this. I really should get out more often.
