I told Hal not to worry about me as I slowly made my way back down to earth. From there I went down to information and asked if they could help me. Within three minutes they got me and Hal new seats! How is their customer service? Go Sharks!

I noticed that the bees were swarming out of a second story window of an abandoned church. The building had a real estate sign so I called the number. The phone was immediately answered and I told the woman that one of her sale properties was swarming bees. She too was shocked and said she would take care of it.
When I got off the phone a woman about my age had arrived at the bus stop. The elderly lady and I told her to watch our for the bees. "I called the real estate company." I told her. Her response? "Why did you do that? They are going to kill the bees! Is that your plan? To have them kill the bees?!" I informed her that I had no plan and that she was free to call them too. It was the most unexpected comment. But then I remembered that this corner served a hospital and perhaps she was insane or paranoid.
Now I'm walking home and am interested to see what awaits me at the corner. hopefully peaceful bees back in their hive. I wonder what caused them to swarm?

As I walked around the property and had the pleasure of sitting on the custom furniture in cozy rooms, I made an effort to note what was making me feel so comfortable. It was the natural materials, the blend of interior with exterior elements and the warm tones of reds and oranges used in the paints and textiles that united all the architectural components.
At the conclusion of our tour the guide gave us a pitch about the architectural school. Listening to her I got an idea: what of I could be a visiting professor teaching the business of art? That made me think about my future in education and how I have so many options open to me for next steps. Now to start outlining a vision and a plan.

Then I went out for some decaf chai at a tea shop. The beverage they served me was so sweet I could not even drink it. When I asked for a less sweet chai the employee tasted my beverage and said it was not sweet at all. He scowled at me and said, "you will have to have one without sweetener. We only put 3 tablespoon of liquid sugar in your drink." He was not interested in working with me to make a tasty beverage. Instead, he handed me an unsweeetened one which tasted too bitter, and walked away. I'm too nice because I found myself apologizing. I'll no be returning to that place.

All this time I thought I had allowed myself to be "open again" and really I had still been hiding for two and a half years. At least I had graduated from living in a friends' attic. Amazing how long it takes to find yourself after striking out on your own.
