Still Here :)

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Apologies for the radio silence; things have been frantic for the past few months. Every time I thought they were slowing down... they did not.

It has been a long, hard year so far.

And I am exhausted.

But I am taking a mini-vacation, starting Friday, to attend the Newport Folk Festival.

So relief is on the way.

More to follow on this.


In the meantime, a recent pic, and a few artists I look forward to seeing this weekend.

Stay cool, everyone!



Ryan Adams:

Trampled By Turtles:

Anais Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer (this is stunning):

And these folks are just the tip of the iceberg! :)

Good to hear from you!

The weather here is just evil at the moment, the sooner it cools down the better. Especially as I have a colleague who in 30c + very high humidity still wears a jacket and jumper *and* complains like hell if someone puts on the AirCo...

Enjoy your mini-vacation, and learn to slow down! (And teach me how when you do :p)

Hope you enjoy your mini vacation! You are looking good!

@ Joey: Thank you very much. I misspelled "In" today - three times. My colleague looked at me and said, "Looks like your brain is already *on* vacation." lol

@ Stace: "He" did not handle the heat very well, but I seem to be much more amenable to it for some reason. Perhaps it was the frigid, endless winter we had - two of them, really. As I told a friend, "You don't have to shovel humidity." 

I *have* noticed that cold bothers me much more than it did pre-transition. Air conditioning was clearly invented by men, I have decided - they probably invest heavily in companies that make sweaters for women. :D

We finally got past the latest release at long last, even if it was crisis-filled the last month. I vowed to take my life back once that nightmare was over, and I am going to do just that, starting this weekend. I will keep you posted on my progress (and hopefully not my lack thereof!).

Finally, and most important... I owe you a reply. I *promise* I will get to it, so stay tuned!

Hope the family is doing well, and little Kleintje is enjoying his first summer...

I have to admit I only work well in a very narrow temperature window. Too cold and I feel sick, to hot and I, well, feel sick.

Somewhere between 16 and 24 is about right. Above or below that and I do not do well! (Air Co is a deity of choice for me!)

You worry about getting yourself fit later, the reply can follow - as long as I know you are OK!

I confess that I, too, love air conditioning too, Stace. It's just that now I am extremely sensitive to it. I think I'm being paid back for all of the joking references I used to make to my sister when she would complain about 68 degrees F (20 C) being "frigid." :-p

Ciao for now!
