My fandom is all crunchy-granola. *loves RDA to little rakishly charming, yet soft-hearted pieces*
It appears that we're returning to The Land Celebration for Beltane this year. You guys remember Sowelu (sp?), the uber-flaky but very sweet proprietress? Apparently our loud and drunken behavior didn't cause them to hate us, so we get to go swimming again. Hurray! Banjo frogs!
I am so, so grateful to my Airy Girl and my bro, cjpetherick, for his persistence in getting a hold of the nice hippies.
Finally, a note to myself, and a request for design help: It may seem like a statement of the obvious, but it's often so far from one's mind when there's a problem to solve... It seems that the key to being happy is learning to observe discomfort without becoming attached to it. If a person can just calmly watch the discomfort, and strive to understand it without letting it control her thoughts or actions, she doesn't have to suffer from it.
That's a tenet of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, as well as of Buddhism. It is easier said that done, but it's also often easier than it sounds. If only I could remember it, as I move through my days.
Would any of you highly artistic types care to design me an image that symbolizes this concept so I can get a tattoo? I'll gladly pay or trade for it. It'd be a very precious thing to have indeed.
Now, back to my comfortable but meaningless job. Ah, well.
