Work is requiring me to actually pay attention, Dad has been in town for quite a few days, and a bunch of big, personal projects are beginning to gear up. So, here are some random things in no particular order.

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.
