I have really just not been able to find time to write as much as I would like these past few months. The crazy schedule continues and am just praying for a little bit of normalcy. That’s probably wishful thinking as June, July, and August look just as crazy.
On a good note, however, the college reunion I was working on went off without a hitch. It was so great to see everyone and 30 years was like yesterday when reuniting with old friends. I even made a bunch of new friends from other classes. There were 24 music grads and professors in attendance… about 35 people in total for our affinity group… and we represented 5 decades! It was a blast and worth all the time and energy I had put into it. It was so much fun re-living our music major days and we even got to play and sing at a church service in the afternoon.
The love and laughter of the weekend really warmed my heart. And I know it’s good for my health! I even had my own built-in music therapy with Ethan’s piano recital on Sunday and band practice on Monday! A few more rehearsals and a few concerts for the summer and then a break…
I’ve discovered a new group on Facebook that I’m really enjoying “PB&J… Plant Based Junkies”. It’s a wonderful support group where people ask specific questions and get the collective wisdom of hundreds of more experienced whole-food plant based eaters. I highly recommend it for those of you who are trying to do plant-based diets. Many of the participants follow the McDougall diet, and I’m learning so much from them. On occasion, I even find I can contribute to the conversation! There’s also a website: http://www.plantbasedjunkies.com/ (I bought myself some cool tee shirts… can’t wait for them to arrive!)
