It's about time.....about time I updated this old blog of mine. Contrary to what some people might think, I did not fall off the face of the earth and disappear. I think some would wish that I did, but alas I am still here. The last time I posted was around October 10th. Things were settling down a bit by then. I had some necessary things done to my house to make it liveable. My drum lessons were in full swing. I had my ears pierced. All good things.
It is now 7 months since I moved to G'town. Work has been both busy and steady. But, for me, things are. In my soul, I still feel disconnected and with no sense of purpose. My past is still a huge part of who I am, and for the most part I merely survive. Now, to other people, they see a huge change in me, and they say for the better. I guess I have to look outside my own box and continue on. Part of that continuum is drumming, where I am the house drummer for the Sunday afternoon jams in Erin. I also jam at other places, but those stints are much shorter, but it's all about enjoyment, and I enjoy being a chick drummer.
Recently, I took a trip to Mexico. That was my second time there, mostly because I love Mexico, and the first visit there left me with permanent and special memories. This trip was my summer vacation. I had not been away all summer. I booked the trip in July and did not know how I would be able to wait 4 months until it was time to actually go. Before I knew it, I was wrapped up in a daily countdown that had my system whirling with excitement....
Short trip synopsis ...Playa del Carmen shopping excursion with handsome Mexican men serving free nachos....swimming with the Dolphins and experiencing my first dorsal tow...and a Catamaran trip to absolutely die for....henna tattoo on my ankle for $5 US....salsa dancing at the pool....nightly shows that were A+.
So, what's in store for me now? Well, first off, I try not to plan too much into the future, because I am still trying to deal with the past and present. What I do know is that I will be spending Christmas day with family. I will be getting a tattoo on Saturday. I am going to a radio party in a week. I'll be jamming on Sunday.
The rest will just happen as it is supposed to.
