"How do I know my youth has been spent,
My get-up-and-go, got up and went.
But in spite of all that, I'm able to grin,
When I think where my get-up-and-go has been."
Yeah I'm seriously lacking in "get up and go". Found out I will have to have my thyroid out, which really sucks and my legs are messed up . At least that hasn't stopped me from getting out, even if it's just for short intervals.
Went to the James Street Art Crawl last Friday. Hadn't been to it in months mostly due to the weather. It rained all spring and then it was brutal hot and humid most of the summer.
I don't mind so much feeling like I'm going to melt if I'm out on the nature trails, but going in and out of buildings with no air conditioning, is just too much for me.
Have to say I was disappointed in the Art Crawl this time. It's turning more into a street festival; with food stalls, craft booths, and various special interest groups pushing their agenda. Hey !I have nothing against Vegans, yet I don't really think it's appropriate to have a t.v. on a public street, showing videos of piglets being slaughtered . It's the Art Crawl and I came here to see art!!
There are so many of these festivals during the summer and they all have a sameness about them. Food, shopping, really loud third rate bands, beer gardens, and those inflated bouncy castles for kids. And why would I want to sign up for a cell phone contract or a fitness club while I'm at an outdoor festival? Hey I sound like a complaining old fogey!
Yeah, well, my life is not exactly a picnic right now.
