A Quick One (While He's Away)

Yeah, yeah, Blue Gal. I forgot to blog yesterday. You were sick and I was preoccupied with interesting people.

This blog tends to be of the ain't it awful activist variety, so I would just like to pause one fast moment to be thankful. Thanksgiving is coming on very shortly and I have much to be thankful for.

  • I am thankful for good friends. One of them is Chance Hunter. His blog is Making Chutney.
  • I am thankful for a fresh start in Atlanta
  • I am thankful for a progressive church which calls itself out when appropriate and makes needed reforms; I am thankful for a church where liberal is used in good sense and irony is understood.
  • I am thankful for a successful re-invention of myself in a bigger town.
  • I am thankful for Blue Gal , who has mentored me and served as the voice of reason and sanity for me, particularly when I was in a much darker point in my life.
  • I am thankful that the USA elected a Democratic majority Congress, thereby making my year.
Tonight I play at Eddie's Attic. This is where I get my music on. I'll be participating in an open mic competition. The competition will be fierce, so I am not expecting to win. But I am expecting to have a good time. Those who make a good impression are often invited back to play their own set on their own night. This is what I am hoping for as well.

Several UU friends are coming out to see me tonight and I am thankful for their being in my life.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!


Comrade Kevin.

I'm grateful you've had a successful reinvention, too. Good going and keep blogging.

We'll all expect to hear from you re the open mic night.

(feeling a little better. Thanks)
