The Weather Report – March 9, 2015
Ravenswood, Chicago, Illinois, United States
Sunrise: 7:14 a.m.
Sunset: 6:51 p.m.
Moon Phase: Waning Crescent
You should wear: new wool socks because yes it is still winter for the foreseeable future and probably for a few weeks after that.
You’re going to feel: better now that I’ve warned you about the cold.
Mainly sunny during the day and clear at night. Winds SSW at 5 to 10 mph.
Find what you love and do the minimal amount of work to get it to love you back. Once you’ve reigned it in, do even less.
Then, you just stay.
After all, it is warmer inside. The conditions are completely static. If you lie in a bed it will hold you up. If you touch the fridge it will touch you back. Move as little as possible, unless it is to the floor, prone, with one arm limply over the stomach of someone who doesn’t quite belong to you though you both know it would be nicer to care for each other anyway. Give a slight squeeze once in awhile as proof.
The basis for being the leader of a nice life is having a task to do with your hands and weather that won’t prevent you from doing it. It is knowing that someone is expecting you. It is having a choice between blue or red without judgement. It is being alone for the sake of others. It is giving in and meaning it.
