So, while I have to get going on going back to the gym, I am grateful for a number of things:
- My rear end doesn't hurt too bad from biking into the Quarter and back on Mardi Gras day on a whim. Edie's daughter prevailed upon me to join her, and, for the first time ever, I went all the way to the Marigny to see the hula-hooping, mad-drumming, gaily-costumed masses on Frenchmen Street. I also ran into so many people I knew, almost as many as the numbers that come through our house for the Krewe of Pancakes and Syrup. Not a bad way to spend a Mardi Gras afternoon.
- I am getting more sleep, even if my dreams have gotten stranger.
- The weather's getting warmer.
- We're gonna get going on planning for Rising Tide VI! Come and join us. We would LOVE your input and your assistance.
Update, 6:17 PM: Doctors Without Borders is doing its damnedest to help in Japan after the recent earthquakes and tsunami, and they're gonna need more help considering the most recent news from the Fukushima plant. Consider a donation to them or to any other relief effort listed here.
