Coffee with Jimmy (February 5 2015)[i]

Waking up off and on throughout the morning in Ana's bed. She's already gone off to work. I can't seem to stay asleep for more than thirty minutes at a time. It's just too bright in her room. I'm used to a curtain darkening the morning light. But I manage to get some good REM later on.

Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maca Powder, Maple Syrup, Chia Seeds, Blueberries, and Almond Milk. Coffee with Coconut Milk and Honey.

Riff Raff: "Some people wanna just only eat chicken breast and rice. I flat out can't cause it taste too much not nice."

Jimmy, my stepdad (or former I guess you could say but he's still family for life), is in town for a funeral of one of the elders of my old church. He stops by the house. We share a cup of coffee and catch up on each other's lives. He has just recently become an ordained minister and has been very active at a church in Florida. He seems very happy; I can hear it in his voice – seems to be really collected and in motion.

Scrambled Eggs. Toast with Butter and Jam. Corn Flax Seed Tortilla Chips with Avocado. Oolong Tea.

Teaching lessons at Music Makers.

Cara Cara Orange.

At the Rec with Ana. She works out in the fitness room while I engage in competitive basketball games in the gym.

Pumpkin Sphinx Mode (February 5 2015)

Back home for a hot second. Sharing dinner with Ana at the table. I enjoy a light Tomato, Cucumber, Carrots, and Spring Mix Salad.

At Josiah's storage unit off Tidewater Drive for a Ladada practice. Calum's here from Richmond to rehearse with us. It's been a little over a year since the three of us played music together. I feel a bit retarded trying to remember my bass lines for songs I used to know fluently. I brought a large Cheese Pizza and Garlic Knots from Brother's Pizza to share. I already gobbled down three slices earlier.

It's supremely cold. I can't bear one second outside.

Back home for the last time today. Ana pokes her head out the door. After a month of living together she's (and I as well) noticed a new dynamic in our relationship. It's been kind of a social experiment with her moving in and having her "own" bedroom. It's not like we were dating after we became roommates. We became roommates after dating. Either way, she's been feeling disconnected. We don't have too much time to talk about it cause it's after 2 in the morning and we both need our sleep.

I just rubbed on a jojoba eucalyptus oil on my beard...

Me: "You wanna kiss my jojoba lips?"

We kiss.

Ana: "I just need to hold you more."

She reaches her arms around me. We stand there in the doorway enjoying each other's embrace for a minute then off to our respective rooms.
