I am so out of the loop that I didn't know until...yesterday that the Firelake Festival was going to be just up the road in Cherokee County, SC! How did I miss that?
I'll tell you how. I've been avoiding everything that had to do with real life outside of my four walls recently and living my life through my computer...much as I'm doing now. I didn't know where I was going to end up working. I didn't know where I would end up living. So instead of being proactive, I've become very reactive and hurtful and just generally no fun to be around.
I wish I could go to Firelake but I can't...but what I can do is stand up and walk away from this machine and live some real life for a change. Snuggle with a greyhound on the couch. Drag a string for a cat to chase. Get out in my car and look for a place to live.
Yeah, I could do all that...but what I'll probably do is stay right here where I am.
