A day for the memory file box

November 9, 2009

I feel spoiled today. I’m staying in a beautiful hotel in Greenville, SC. I spent a few hours this afternoon walking around town, looking in shops, and checking out the Reedy River Falls Park. It seems that everything about today is beautiful. The air smells like fall in an indescribable way. The trees and starting to show red and yellow tips. It’s overcast but the temperature is perfect for wearing long sleeves and a scarf.

I slept until 10:30 this morning. I feel bad because I only slept in about a third of the bed. It’s a king with a real duvet and thick white sheets. The coffee maker in the room comes with Starbucks coffee. I am now drinking my second cup and eating a delightful molasses clove cookie.

The Falls Park is beautifully landscaped. There are benches and swings throughout to sit and watch the ducks and chipmunks. It is such a peaceful day. I wish I had brought a book or something to write on. Or maybe that I was able to just sit still and be quiet for more than a few minutes.

I stopped in a shop that had interesting and creatively stimulating jewelry and art work. There were earrings and bracelets made of old watch parts and others made of old Starbucks gift cards. It makes me wish I had money to buy everything and simultaneously wish that I would make time to do more creative things.

I signed up for an online writing workshop. My first assignment was due last night. I have yet to receive any feedback about it. The class is Essentials of Writing Personal Essays.

All hell may break loose when I go to the airport and fly to Atlanta, but this has been such a relaxing and enjoyable day I know I’ll be able to handle it.
