Rainy, humid, hot

Yesterday morning absolutely flew past — I got out a bunch of submissions that stacked up (I’m finally getting out the backlog of projects), I got out a bunch of queries, I dealt with some business-y stuff. It was very productive, but definitely a case of “noon aleady?”

I found a great market to pitch an article about a local historical site about which I’m passionate, so I’m getting to work on that, and working on a long-term proposal for an exciting project. The chances of me being chosen are about the same as when pigs fly, but with the way scientists make break-throughs nowadays, maybe the pigs and I will both get the chance!

Made a quick run to Costco, to pick up a few things. I’m taking advantage of the fact that it’s only about a mile from me, because when I move — the nearest Costco is 45 minutes to an hour away, which means I have to be very organized, have lots of lists, and make a day of it — Costco, lunch, return. Thank goodness for insulated food bags, right? Sort of like when I go to Niantic now — it turns into a day trip.

Now, I have the luxury of being able to dash over and pick up one or two things and dash out — provided I don’t get distracted!

Prepared for today’s interviews. Got the bag packed — camera, tape recorder, notebook. I’m going up county to conduct the interviews, working in CT this afternoon, and then going to a meditation session tonight, at the same place I attended the Herbal Hour last night.

Parking was hell, but the facility is terrific, and maybe I’ll even try a yoga class or two. The session was fantastic — there were six of us, and we all instantly connected. Three of us are coming back for the meditation tonight. The workshop leader was fantastic — I definitely want to work with her again. It was great to get out there and meet a bunch of people in very different lines of work — it’s rare that I’m the only person who works in the arts in a room, but, actually, out here in the ‘burbs, it’s more the norm. When you attend workshops in the city, about 70% of those attending will be somehow connected to the arts community. And yet, workshops like this bring us together because of what unites us, not because we’re so different, and we can use our differences as frames of references to help and support each other. So that was all very cool. There was one woman who’s what I call a professional workshop attendee, but she’s very funny.

Not going to get my morning 1K I think, because I have to leave so early to drive up county. I’ve set aside time in the afternoon instead. I don’t usually write much in the afternoon, but today I’m going to have to!

I’m curious about the meditation session tonight — I’ve also been invited to one on Friday at another location. So, we’ll see.

Off to eat a hearty breakfast and then to do my interviews!

  1. What a great outlet! I need to take some classes when my kids are all in school. But then, I’ll be WRITING! 🙂

    Oh, and pigs DO fly. My two year old was making his stuffed pig fly over the bannister just yesterday. See? SEE???

    😉

  2. Sounds like a great day ahead!

    There isn’t a close Costco to me, either. My option is Sam’s Club. That company gets enough of my money with Wal-Mart. 😀

  3. It sounds as though you have your day organized. I wish you the best with everything!
