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.

i live in upper northwest, but work downtown by judiciary square. were you planning on leaving friday after work, or saturday morning...because if you were leaving friday, i could meet you anywhere metro accessible.

that would be so awesome! i haven't gone for the last two years, either, because i've been performing those weekends. and i have MISSED it so much. i'm really looking forward to this year.

Perfect! We live in Wheaton.

Most likely we will leave Saturday morning, as it makes it easier on us with dog and all. You don't mind riding with the dog, do you? :)

So we could swing down 16th street, pick you up, then go through the city and get on 66.
