Entry date: 7-27-2023 – Brain Dump – Letters to My Friends

Dear Friends,

My brain is overflowing at the moment.

Have you ever had that feeling? I’m sure we all have. It’s not unfamiliar, but after being on vacation for five weeks, I realized yesterday (and really, late Tuesday night) that I needed to get my head back in the game and quick. Reality sandwich time, if you will.

The trip home was fine, I suppose. It’s a long day, going from Rangeley, Maine to Phoenix, Arizona. There is the two- and half-hour drive to Portland, then a two-hour bus ride to Logan Airport, then the time there, and then a five-hour flight home. If you include the time at the Phoenix airport waiting for bags and the ride home, it makes for a 17-hour day.

I’m lucky, I know, to have the privilege, but it wipes a brain out and leaves it rattling around in the old bone cage that is my skull. Yesterday, I was back at work and trying to focus on what was a rather good training. We were learning about the 7 Habits (Stephen Covey stuff) and I assume that today’s training will tie into the new program we are using to help kids be them best selves at school. It went by pretty fast, actually, but I was wiped out after work.

Luckily for me, I had a ticket to see Gel at the Rebel Lounge. If you missed out, you missed a great punk rock show. Both Gel and Truth Cult ripped. Fully ripped, actually, and they were cool young folks, too. My buddy Aaron and I went and had a good time.

I also performed magic tricks when I came home and reproduced all the beer in my stomach. Yay! I’m not sure why I got sick, but something didn’t agree with me. I didn’t drink that much but maybe the heat got me a bit. I have no idea, but as I write this, I’m feeling somewhat happy that I got the booze out of my system last night. I’m sure I would feel worse right now.

Gatorade is needed.

I’m off to another training today, too, and then a chiropractor appointment. I am hoping the doc can give me a little relief from the neck pain I’ve been experiencing. Yesterday, even with a ton of stretching, I just could not get comfortable.

Here’s to a better day.

See you tomorrow.

I love this picture. Look how serious he is.
