#2 - My main "junk" drawer where I throw things had gotten so bad that I had a bad dream about it last night. I guess that is what it took for me to take action and remedy the situation.
#3 - I'm planning the Health and Wellness day for the Farmer's Market. Last week I spoke to a woman and it came out that they would be interested in doing a square dancing demonstration. Perfect! I tried contacting her a couple times, but I didn't hear back. Today, she called and asked if the leader of the dancers had contacted me, not yet, but I did appreciate her follow-up.
#4 - Last night I volunteered for "Date Night Log Rolling". Log rolling (a sport originating with lumberjacks balancing on a log on a river) is something that sounded fun. I held the log as people stepped up and then tried to hold it a little bit while they steadied themselves. I think I tried to help a little too much as the inside of my knees got scraped up and hurt when they rubbed against anything last night. I guess I should have let people fall more.
Oh well, I was happy to support the couples doing something interesting for their date nights! Today at the Farmer's Market I came across one of the couples again. :)
#5 - I'm reading Ashley Judd's All that Is Bitter & Sweet
The book is about her life, and her work as a global ambassador with Population Services International where she focuses on AIDS prevention, education and treatment. This quote is at the beginning of a chapter.
" What the eye sees better the heart feels more deeply.
We not only increase the likelihood of our being moved;
we also run the risks that being moved entails. Seeing increases our vulnerability to being recruited to the welfare of another."
Robert Kegan, The Evolving Self
