The break of dawn

I got up at 3:30 to catch my 6:30am flight out of the Ontario airport, which is like LA, but without the cluster fuck. I’m sitting at Carl’s Jr. drinking mediocre coffee and attempting to eat a breakfast sandwich that looks kind of suspicious. Elvis’s Blue Christmas is playing, which seems appropriate. Traveling alone kind of amplifies all these recent woes.

On Saturday night I called my mom, SOBBING about B3 and how much I was missing him. She said something to me that was kind of perfect. I said to her that I felt guilty for being so upset because it had only been two months and lots of people go through much more serious breakups/divorces so what was I really so upset about because in the grand scheme of things it shouldn’t be that big of a deal. She said,”yes but it’s YOUR grand scheme of things and that’s why it’s a dig deal.” I guess we really need to remember that apologizing for our feelings is pointless because they are ours and no one else’s.

This is something I hope we all can remember. Merry Christmas, everyone!

  1. Reva,
    First & foremost, sorry about the laptop. Data loss and loss of laptop usage sucks, I’ve been there…
    Secondly, I do hope your recent woes will disappear sooner rather than later. Travel safe out there.
    3rd, you never fail to entertain with your blog; my adventures will always pale in comparison to yours.
    Fourth and finally….Merry Christmas/Happy Holidaze to you, your fam, your friends and your fans!

    Until Whenever,
    RJDS
