beach trip, good mail week, and sharp eyes
posted by soe 1:21 am

Three beautiful things from this past week:

1. Swayed by a sign pointing the way to the local beach, Rudi and I made a surprise ten-minute stop at Savin Rock in West Haven, where we admired the full moonrise over the ocean and I dipped my toes in the chilly water. (I’ll post a picture tomorrow. I don’t want to get out of bed to get my phone.)

2. A letter arrives from a college friend from the Philippines and a postcard from Rhode Island.

3. My Bikeshare fob (a plastic sandwich with a computer chip dot as its meager filling) came apart six months ago and I’ve been using a hair elastic to keep it held together since then. (I should note here that Bikeshare would totally replace it for free if I told them about it. Which I will. At some point.) Last Sunday, as I heading into work, I realized the elastic had gotten yanked off the fob and the chip, which is smaller than my pinkie nail, was gone. A couple days later, Rudi looked down just outside the apartment door and saw my chip lying on the ground, unsquashed. It’s back in the fob and working once more.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?
