Inspirational Pigeons

 In Uncategorized


It’s mid-year (almost) and my mid-year resolutions have just kicked in. Okay they were kicked in last week, but hey, I’m an early starter.

Big resolution: Since I am “Fun-employed” I am treating my writing like a job. I have a set, scheduled time to write daily. I’ve been going to the Coffee Bean and writing for 1-2 hours every morning. (Ok, 4 mornings in the last week).

There are two pigeons hanging around the Coffee Bean who are “handicapped”: Stumpy, who has one regular foot and one foot with just one talon on a stump and, the guy I saw this morning with two toes that are black and turn up on the end of his foot. Ouch.

They don’t seem to let their handicap stop them, so I’m oddly inspired by them. I’ve got good feet, aside from a slight case of plantar faciitis, and no health problems. If these little moochers can make a go of it, I guess I can make it out of the house to write.

I’ll try to get a pic of Stumpy tomorrow. I always try to slip him some scone without the other pigeons noticing, maybe he’ll see me and pose for the camera.

    Inspired by pigeons – that’s a new one.

    I live vicariously through your writing. You are the most interesting woman in the world (please tell me you’ve seen the dos echis commercial). I think your job is truly to entertain the rest of us : )
