Took goodies to the soup kitchen this morning - quite a bit stacked up in my freezer over the week! Later, I complimented a woman on her rain jacket, and we wound up chatting a bit. She was here visiting, and she's moving here in a couple of weeks. I gave her my number and suggested we get coffee when she does move. This is really unusual for me, because I'm such a solitary person. Who knows what will come of it, but at least she'll have someone to call. (For the record, I considered the compliment a gift, but not the phone number). Shortly after that, I ran into a clerk I'd had a great conversation with a few weeks ago - she tipped me off about a local electronics store and <sigh> essentially why I'm wasting $15/month to insure my phone. I appreciated her insights and told her that.
These all seemed like small things - this seems to be a "small things" kind of round so far - so this evening, I left 50 cents on a bus bench.
This morning, I got into an argument with a casual friend over something that, at the time, seemed relatively trivial (in retrospect, I can see where I got triggered, and it wasn't so trivial for me). But I got angry, and as I mentioned a few days ago, I don't usually get angry. I stayed angry for hours. The anger that erupted after the fact is stuff that had been simmering for a long time. I don't like people judging other people (in fact, I... well, I judge them for it <sigh>). And this has been an ongoing issue. Most of the time, I've been able to stay present and grounded and present alternate viewpoints, or simply not react, but... not today. I reacted big-time.
So this full-moon weekend isn't off to a great start, but hey, tomorrow is another day. Maybe I'll just hide out :)
Hope you all had good Fridays. Cheers!
