Things have started getting better. I’ve started feeling better. I’ve started feeling more alive again.
Of course, when I’m feeling good, when I’m feeling alive, I tend to go overboard, I tend to take on more things. I tend to overextend. I’m hoping, now, I’m able to balance. I’m hoping, now, I won’t fall down another rabbit hole.
I suppose we’ll see what happens next.
But, August. August was a good month.
Here are some of the things I did in August…
I saw a preview screening of Florence Foster Jenkins followed by a talkback with Simon Helberg.
On one of my weekend walks I stumbled upon Green City Market, which is kind of ironic because I always thought about going to Green City Market but it was too early and too far away. Which might tell you how crazy obsessed I’ve become with walking. Anyways. I bought $40 worth of vegetables.
On another walk I went to Bromann Park. I’m kind of a big deal.
I went to see We Banjo 3 at City Winery. And now I want to learn to play the banjo. Or go back to Galway. Or both.
I began guitar lessons again. I took Guitar 101 a few years ago but realized I remember nothing. So I’m starting at the beginning again. I realized, in my first class, that while I remember nothing, the muscle memory in my fingers is much better than when I started the first time. Hopefully that will continue. I can now play a mean D chord.
And I took a vacation to Austin and Seattle. I already wrote about everything I ate in Austin. And I have a couple more posts coming along.
True story: when my friend told me that that “I love you so much” graffiti was famous and a thing people flock to see when in Austin and said I should take a photo I totally just laughed at him and thought he was just trying to pull one over on me. Apparently he was not.
