(1) Exercise appears to have been reinstated, with corresponding weight loss in the works. I ran 2 1/2 miles three days ago, walked four miles briskly the day after, and eight whole miles yesterday – though it was only brisk throughout the first four miles thereof. Though innervated today, I’m confident I’ll have a good run tomorrow morning.
(2) Working on the 5th and final column of my five-part series for Spokane Faith and Values. This one should drive the point home. I’m grateful for the opportunity to have aired this particular viewpoint, at this time.
(3) Beautiful weather we’ve been having lately, which made the walk up and down the hills circling campus very pleasant yesterday, as well as quite brisk on the uphill at the start. Today’s a shade on the cloudy side, but I like it a lot. Reminds me of San Francisco.
(4) We closed out our pandemic-based Eden in Babylon workshop yesterday, with tears of joy and thanksgiving on my part. I’m deeply moved that these people seemed to show up out of nowhere — talented, dedicated singer/actors, who helped me more than they know. We also recorded three more songs — “Midnight Screams,” “Daylight,” and “The Urban Elegy” — with piano, singing and professional sound design on the part of Liam Marchant. The band will keep rehearsing every Monday indefinitely, but outside of further future podcasts that Kelsey Chapman and I are planning, the involvement of the singer/actors is formally complete. The whole having been uniquely beautiful, I’m sure we’ll all stay in touch.
(5) I finished the new version of the script on March 12th, the first revision since December 21st, incorporating everything we learned in the workshop, and then some. I’m standing on new ground spiritually, and thankful, and taking heed lest I fall.
