I just wanted to take a moment to just put out there what's been going on. I'm doing this more for myself as a form of therapy. There has been SO much on my mind that I'm afraid my brain is going to burn out entirely so I'm just gonna spit some stuff out.
A friend of mine passed away last Sunday. I haven't seen him in many years, it just happened naturally ya know? People come and go in your life. I use to see him a lot more when I was younger and more involved in church. My brother stayed in touch with him. When I found out he was sick, it was all over Facebook. And then he was gone. Gone too soon. His name was Anthony Barber, we called him "Choco" and he was a kind and gentle soul. I don't share my religious beliefs too much on my blog, but Choco was legit. He practiced what he preached and I respected him for that. Everyone loved him and I don't think anyone had a bad thing to say about him ever. After not thinking about him much over the last several years, I've thought about him a lot in the last week. I'm sad but find comfort in knowing that he's no longer suffering and in a much better place singing and dancing (which he loved to do).
Next, there are health issues that have come up. Nothing nearly as serious as a couple of years ago. One has to do with my balance, I may have Vertigo. I'm still getting tested for that. So far my hearing and my ears seem to be fine. The other is a nodule in my thyroid. Again, no cause for concern according to my doctor, but more sonograms need to be done. I'm just sick of going to doctors offices. Co-pays add up.
Last, I am organizing Hudson Valley Etsy's Holiday Craft Fair. It's my first time putting it together. I've never been in charge of a craft fair before. I've done it as a vendor and helped with the planning but it's my first time "in charge" and I'm a little freaked out by it. It's not that I'm afraid of telling people what to do. I just rather do it myself. I'm kind of horrible at delegating and asking for help but I'm using this as a learning process.
Work, work, and more work. Trying to find time to stay creative is getting more challenging. There is so much more on my mind to share but I feel like this is enough for now. It's hard for me to get through a wordy post myself.
