Another knockout of a day, considerably cooler. Feeling somewhat peopled-out today. Tired of people. The past three days have been fairly social, which is fine . I need that too. But there always comes a point where I get overloaded(or someone pisses me off)and have to retreat for awhile. Recharge the batteries.
I have a rehearsal of sorts at 7, but other than that, nobody to see and nowhere to go all day. Especially liking the nobody to see part. And I'm hoping that tomorrow follows suit.
Fritz Perls, the founder of Gestalt Therapy, called people either nourishing or toxic, as far as their affect on you. . Found some truth in what he had to say. I try to keep as many nourishing(i.e. positive, encouraging)friends as I can, and as few toxic(i.e. negative, discouraging) individuals as possible.
And then you have those friends who are both nourishing and toxic. They build you up some days and tear you down on other occasions. So you keep the friend but just try to note what mode they happen to be in.
Someone pissed me off yesterday. Nothing evil or malicious, just being a jerk. This person has a lot of problems, and my screaming at them would probably just make things worse. It'll pass..
Music news. A job on Saturday at Arlington's. 7 to 9. Hope to see you there. That's all I've got for today. Happy Thursday. More later.
