it's funny how one thing can undo me.
how coffee loses its taste and the sunrise loses its brilliance when clouded.
i've got a presentation today. a short, no-longer-than-three-minutes-please little impromptu speech.
and i've practiced. for robert. for pablo (who provided lots of constructive criticism), and for my co-workers.and i drove to work in the dark this morning, praying for an elusive confidence the whole time.
i was born nervous, to a nervous father. i'm reminded every time i skirt the telephone or think up another word to replace the one not quite out of my mouth.
so i will drive. to the big city two hours away. with my sweet sister in tow and hope against all odds that the fluency fairy will visit at approximately 6:15 p.m.
prayers, happy thoughts, well wishes, good vibes, please?
