Alone on Thanksgiving

I really wish it was colder around this time.

L.A. makes it a bit hard to enjoy the holidays and here I am sweating in my tiny apartment waiting for…


I don’t know what.

Maybe the miracle that a few more square feet would open up in here and allow room for a Christmas tree.

Who knows.

I’m hungry and can I be honest?

I’m not that much of a cook.

I bought pie for my job’s potluck which isn’t until tomorrow and that’s the only edible thing in here I keep thinking about.

I don’t really care for Thanksgiving.

I think I did until this point and the more I think about it, the more I wish I was home with my family.

Is that sad?

I don’t really know anymore.

And I wish I wrote more than I do now.

The winter season always gets me in the writing mood.

It makes me start things I never finish and wish I had a book to show for.

Instead, I pace back and forth in 200 sq. ft. trying to figure out what to do next with my life.

As much as I love running a business (if I actually am running a business), I hate it.

Does that make sense?

It’s like the minute I get the opportunity to do nothing, I get reminded of all the things I must do.

Does it ever end?

Probably not.

Right now, I’m not a fan of the holidays.

I’m a fan of sleeping in all morning and watching movies in bed, not worrying about the success of my career.

I really wish I wrote more.

So, here I am.

It’s Thanksgiving and I’m alone.

Alone, with a tiny apartment to clean, waiting for the miracle that I might become a great writer someday;

or that I may run a successful business,

or that I may have a bigger apartment soon;

or maybe even a house.

It’s Thanksgiving and I wish I had something other to say than this.

It’s warm and I wish it was colder.

I wish I was with my family and I really wish I had some good food.


here I go.

Off to continue the rest of this day and maybe…

I don’t know… maybe,

something will happen.

What are you doing today?

I hope you enjoy yourself.

I’ll be here..
