Day 2: Tidy my waffles

Terrible things happen all the time in A Town Called Panic, a great “kids'” movie. The characters make disastrous mistakes on a routine basis, so that the Belgian equivalent of “uh oh” is uttered by one or another of them approximately every 6 to 8 minutes. And yet Horse, Indian, Cowboy, and all the rest remain gleefully open to good times and the possibility/probability that all will turn out well after all.

Anyway, this day was riddled with frenzied comings and goings, minor mis-haps, major miscalculations — all in all, a pretty typical day. Oh, and I did no real writing (outside of this), so I feel pretty much like usual myself at the moment, have not been instantly edified or magically transformed by blogging, and am not gleefully open to much. But it’s only Day 2.

Must definitely try harder to “tidy [my] waffles” (quote from the movie) and keep on keeping on.
