I can’t think about today because I am too busy thinking about my future…

Today’s passage from Notes To Myself.
I feel sensually attracted to Leah as she walks in the door with Bill. Now, if I am open, if I broaden my awareness to include Bill’s presence, Gayle’s presence, my emotions, etc., then my response will be in rhythm with the situation as a whole. It is only when I am mentally myopic that my actions become excessive or restricted.
To all who have helped me — Thanks.
But First, A Shot At The Recent Past
Last night I left work “late” and did not have enough timme to eat dinner before heading to the Horizon Theatre.
It’s rare that I say that a play would have been great if not for some of the performances on stage. Such was the case last night with Hallelujah Street Blues. With the play one-week into its run I expect the actors to nail their lines, after all these are professionals and not high school students. The theater last night was near-capacity, and during the intermission I heard at least two other patrons discuss the awkward timing between actors due to delayed line delivery.
Hallelujah Street Blues is being worked up as part of the New South Play Festival which “focuses on working with Southern and African-American writers to tell stories that resonate with our audiences here and now.” The play centers around gentrification of an African-American neighborhood and struggle for one woman to live out her days in her home. Each character within the play confronts the changes in their own way, and in the end is forced to come to grips with the way that their life has played out.
Hallelujah Street Blues will be performed until August 24th. I highly recommend that you make time to see this play, and hope that by the time you do that the kinks have been worked out.
This will be a busy, busy weekend. While I am guarding my free time tonight like a mother guarding her child, I have already accounted for Saturday and Sunday.
Sunday is a no-brainer because on that day I will be laying my birthday Black Sheep Hash on the “south side” near Union City. Should you be so inclined to run through brambles in 90-degree weather then I highly suggest that you plan on attending.
On Saturday morning/afternoon I will be joining my buddy Gentri and putting the final touches on Sunday’s hash. Later that afternoon I am planning on making that trip to Athens that I put off last weekend, unless the weather is shitty. With any luck the predicted sunny weather will continue and I will also get some photography opportunities.

Nothing again today. What can I say, I looked at the other concert shots that I took the other night and was not impressed. I’ve decided only to show exceptional work, even if that means showing less work.
Instead today I will show you a 8.5″ x 11″ print that I bought from 20×200.
Why did I buy this? Because it amuses me greatly.
Buying from 20×200 was an experiment that I am not sure that I will repeat. Don’t get me wrong, their website and service is great, even if their terms of sale stipulate that there is no recourse for receiving damaged 8.5″ x 11″ prints. It’s just that the shipping for this $20 print was $8.50 and there is nothing special about the print quality, at least to my eyes.
2009: Canada And Beyond!
This year I was to make a return to Canada, specifically the Maritime regions of Eastern Canada. Next year I really want to follow through and do this.
If I am financially stable next year I think that I will also attempt to make my first trip abroad, perhaps to England or Ireland (note: I am sticking with the English-speaking countries for the time being.)
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…

Website Of The Day – I keep seeing commercials for Feed The Pig while watching the Tour de France. With the amount of money that I am spending this year I am definitely not going to be their spokesman any time soon.
