A dream I had

So I’m walking up third street with a huge box of Vollwerth’s hot dogs to pass out to free. They each individually wrapped. On my way I walk by the new Thrivent financial office, at the old Elegant Seagulls location. I decide to stop in to say hi to my friend Wyatt.

When I get in there are professionally dressed high school kids everywhere. All waiting for job interviews. … back door…

Now annoyed… don’t want to hand out hot dogs anymore…. throw two at an annoying guy… get to the intersection and a lady recognizes me and ask if I’m behind the event at the museum… I ask which… she says history museum and that someone is building a halfpipe inside for an exhibit… I say it’s not me but that’s awesome and I can’t wait to check it out.

Dreams are awesome. And I think I’ll go check out this halfpipe today.

Notes that were never completed

My emotional availability… being happy… my own boss now and the sunrise… (These notes were never completed)

I think what’s important is that a person’s needs can’t override the other persons boundaries


Fuel more Sunrises

There is plenty more to come from Year of the Sunrise. You can always add a cup of coffee to keep me going strong in the mornings, or a tank of gas to get me to some new places, as the sun keeps rising.
