just like flies

I've been going for a walk every day on my lunch break.  I am but one of a legion of office drones, stretching our legs and soaking in every drop of unseasonably warm and unquestionably beautiful September sunshine. We walk and walk until every precious outdoor minute has ticked by.

I often think I should bring my camera, to capture the angles and the reflections in those glass towers that puncture the relentless blue sky. Today, a window washer rappelled down the side of a building to come to a firm landing on the sidewalk not ten feet away from me. 

I was tempted to ask if I could have a try.

Barb B! I've been off the blogger map for so long, on a whim I decided to check back in tonight. This isn't particularly on topic, but I wanted to thank you: a while back you took 14 year-old me seriously and made me realize that I could maybe someday make it as a writer. Looking back at my old blog, you gave thoughtful comments on every post. You have no idea how important that was to me. I'm finishing university now and I run thelowlevelhum.com, which is all about Edmonton music. So again, thank you thank you thank you.

Cheers,
Becky (of The Beckster's Blog ;))

Becky! How lovely to hear that you are doing well and following your dream. I always thought that you were a good writer with solid ideas and a compelling way of presenting them. Great to hear that hasn't changed!

I will definitely come to check out your new blog! Go Edmonton music!
