Blogmas Day 8: “The Boxer” & A Funny Introvert Shirt 🥊🚀

Today is my rest day from cycling. I’ll be cleaning the peregrine nest top to bottom, reading and writing more of my current novel in the works.

I went to a show last night and one of the songs performed was “The Boxer”,  originally sung and performed by Simon and Garfunkel. I don’t think I ever properly listened to the lyrics before that night. I recognized the song immediately and looked it up when I got home. It’s full of pain, ugliness, beauty and resilience. I may listen to it on repeat when I write today. It really touches something in the human experience.

Also, take a look at my funny sweater I bought. I’ve been coming across a lot of NASA clothing at a store I frequent and I’ve been scooping them up eagerly. 🤓👍
