I neglected to write about it, but I was up in Vancouver again on Friday for their regular, first-Friday-of-the-month Art Walk event. It was part of one of my Pedal Driven/Ads-on-Bikes project I've had for years. We have enough material and trial runs now to start writing up some definitive conclusions and reports. Hopefully soon.
Regular Sunday music practice happened again today with Inky Shadows. We're discussing recordings and the prospect of putting out a vanity record on vinyl. It would not be an inexpensive venture but... VINYL! Somewhat related, I had an interesting moment where I realized I could recall a church song form many years ago, almost note-for-note and word-for-word. It's interesting because church was not a huge part of my life, yet something I did regular with my dad and brother when we were young. We never really talked much about it outside of attending, so it was kind of like going once a week or so to observe someone else's rituals and traditions and have an hour to ponder things and sing songs... All very peculiar, but in retrospect I think it
might've been the ideal way to experience that. Huh.
I bought a blender. I've been on a smoothie rampage. SUMMER IS HERE! Expect a smoothie recipe or nine to grace this blog soon.
Speaking of summery things, I'm continually grateful for the stretch of amazing weather we've had the past few weeks. This tends to be the time of year when I come into my own, and having the warmer season around earlier has been a helpful way to recover from a long year of travel and a difficult adjustment. It keeps me outside more often; it allows me to feel like a more complete human being... More of that please.
