The day after Monday and the day before Wednesday.
There are a lot of people out there who are moaning that it's gonna' be forever before Friday shows up around here. I don't have that problem as every day is the same as the other. With the possible exception of what the weather is like outside, it's all the same to me. Well almost all the same.
There are some subtle differences that are worth noting. Like Tuesdays and Thursday are the days for the City Mission food bank. Friday is St. Paul's food bank day. I don't go to the food banks as often as I have in the past. Spending less money on crack has meant more for the real necessities of life.
Like food, for instance.
Wednesdays are the days when the Erie Art Museum has it's outdoor, free lunch time concerts. One Wednesday a month, usually the last one is when the Erie Philharmonic has the Hot Dog and Classics concerts in front of the Warner Theater. The Warner is a beautiful place that also holds many memories for me from my childhood and beyond. From movies to concerts, like the Beach Boys, The Guess Who and The Moody Blues.
I've never heard the Philharmonic play there though and someday I intend to do just that.
Saturdays and Sundays are still kind of laid back days. As if all my days weren't laid back days, but with curtailed bus service and little else going on there is little reason to venture outside. Except when there is a festival of some sorts going on in the area. This week will be Celebrate Erie days. The high point for me will be the fireworks.
And they are free!
So, a few dollars are in my pocket. No crack has been smoked in a few days now as well. Life isn't perfect, but who's life is perfect anyway? The thing is that small improvements are being made. While maybe not quick enough in the measure of someone else, but I am happy with the direction things are going so far. Things may well change tomorrow, but that will be worried about at that time.
After all, Better is Better and that's my Gold Standard.
