Sam's Saturday Sadhana
Another shitty day, probably worse than yesterday. I did get my somewhat agoraphobic ass out of the house last night for awhile. There was a good band at Robbie's, whom I don't get to see that often since they're from Bloomington. Glad I made an appearance. And I have one friend who texted me, which stirred me to action. Thank you, Julie Jules.
Or is is Julie Jewels? Actually that sounds faintly pornographic, as in family jewels.
Next week is a little busier. A rehearsal on Monday night, Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday afternoon, and a gig Saturday night.
I have adjusted to all the spare time you have when you retire, but it's still better when you're coming out of a busy patch. Alternating between busy(okay, somewhat busy)and idle seems like a good plan. That way you're always welcoming what's in front of you.
What's in front of us is really all we have to work with, and the present is the only place we can make changes.
I don't know if that's profound or blaringly obvious. Maybe both..
This has all the makings of a guitar day. Been trying to keep up the practicing, but am in a bit of a slump. It happens. But it also passes pretty quickly.
Hopefully a guitar day with something I can post, and you all will like. Time will tell.
Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. Happy Saturday to you! (Even if it is a rainy, depressing day). More later.
