I was chilling, getting my morning started at E Street Cafe, doing a little programming remotely (one of my favorite tech things ever!). A sweet girl sat next to me (she looked really comfy!) reading Vonnegut’s Breakfast of Champions, one of those books I always meant to read, but never did. We chatted a little about her book and the one it reminded me of (Tom Robbins’ Jitterbug Perfume) and she told me a little about herself. We talked politics a little as well.
The reason I’m posting this is because she impressed me, she just did. She just graduated high school. She’s studying holistic and healing arts as well as massage. She’s working her path with such clarity for someone “her age”, that I’m just excited to know that people like her exist.
Obviously, this is all coming from my own experience, totally lost and wayward until just recently
