100 Days, Day 024

Nothing.

I feel I’ve been doing nothing lately. Nothing besides taking care of movieStar and tinyMovieStar, the two most important people in my life.

Someone told me on Micro.blog that that is not doing nothing, that it’s doing something, maybe a lot.

And I guess it is. There is nothing I’d rather be doing, truth be told, and it is something. Probably, if I succeed, even a lot.

But it’s a change in pace, and I’m still getting used how big a change this is.

Getting used to not leaving for work, or to having no work, getting used to not being up to date on the news, not knowing what shows I’m missing, not having my time in front of the computer trying to figure out how to do this or that, not being able to read the books that keep piling up on my virtual bookshelf, not going out to dinner with our friends, not...

I knew, and accepted, that a change was coming. And a big one.

And I know, hope, that all those things will come back later on.

But I was that person, and that person is no more. I’m a different one now.

Now I’m Clara’s dad.

Even when some of those return, I will still be Clara’s dad.

Yes, I guess that’s something.
