I get so excited when the seasons change. I supposed it comes from growing up in New England. Each season is so distinctive in the Northeastern US. Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall ~ I am learning to appreciate them all. It is just an awesome display of Nature’s changes. It continues to remind me to go with the ebbs and flows of life. The way we adapt to change is a tremendous testament to the resilience of our character.
So I went back and read my first log from last summer and it is amazing how much life evolves in a years time. What stays the same are the principles we use to cope with our evolution. I still have not mastered the balance I seek in my life but I also haven’t given up trying.
My readership has exploded in the last year. The support here in the States and abroad warms my heart. I have decided I am not going to stress because you all are not commenting. You are logging on and reading and that’s enough for me. I graciously thank you for time. When you have something to say, please do, as the comment are welcome.
I celebrated the 2 year anniversary of my start as a blogger on the 18th of this month. It makes me very happy that after two years of doing this I still awaken with fresh ideas. I still feel refreshed after I post. I still want to do this and do it well. It still excites me and makes me want to keep pressing forward.
I have been in full motion since the Summer Solstice a couple days ago. I prepared a belated birthday lunch for my cousin on Tuesday…Slightly Bourgeois Surf & Turf = Rack of Lamb & Asparagus Tips, Pan-seared Sea Bass, Seasoned Red Rice and Kale. It was nice to have the company of family. I hope she enjoyed her lunch…we both cleared our plates so I supposed it was well received. I enjoyed it but ya’ll know I like my own cooking.
That evening at the invitation of Miss Lani I attended a service called The Vous at Trinity Church here in South Florida. It was a good service that challenged the traditional ideas of Christian worship. It was lively and reminded me of the Evangelical services I have viewed on television. The decor and vibe of the Youth Auditorium – their description – was what caught me off guard the most. It was a cross between a club and a theater. Dimmed lights and low black ceilings framed the top of the room. The stage, set up for a full band with entrances surrounded by large industrial style props. This experience re-opened so many points of interests on worship that I will have to dedicate another post solely to this topic.
The next day I was invited to Trapese, a swingers club and Santo a lounge in The Village at Gulf Stream Park. I accepted both invitations and I will recount my review for you soon. For now I must keep the motion flowing. I wish all I had to do was write but I must invest time into development, marketing and networking.
This going to be a wonderful summer. As always, I am so glad you are on the journey with me.
