I've been a bit silent recently, and I apologize. Life has gotten intense in the last week and a half. As my friend said at a gathering last night, it's like someone turned up the dial on a meter and told us to feel all things on level OUTOFCONTROL: happy times feel like manic times, sad times feel like the depths of despair times. It's a little difficult to deal with. There's been a lot of death and almost-death, mourning and celebration, personal issues and work "fun". I'm ready to call June done, but there's unfortunately a few more weeks left.
This post doesn't have much to do with veganism or living greenly, but I do want to share that I had an amazing time of my life at Imogen Heap's concert on Wednesday. She was fantastic, personable, funny, talented, and she played for so long that I was ready to fall asleep as we left the concert venue. One particular highlight of the evening was when she improvised on a tune that an audience member shouted out and a key that another audience member yelled, and made up a new song. She said she would mix it up and put it on her website, where it will be sold for $1 to support a local charity: Ecotrust. How great is that?
I hope this next week operates on the NOTQUITEOUTOFCONTROL level so that I can take a deep breath and re-energize. If it doesn't, however, I have no other choice but to continue living, breathing, and taking one day at a time.
