I don’t have much I need to say, but I want to get into the habit of updating this weekly. So, let’s see what happens.
I was a huge NFL fan for most of my life, but the last five or so years, I haven’t been interested. The last season I watched consistently was the year the Patriots went undefeated until they lost to the Giants in the Super Bowl. Since then, I’ve watched some playoffs, but the last 2 or 3 years, I’ve just watched the championshipl. However, today, as I type this, I find myself wanting to watch the divisional playoffs. I don’t know why. I don’t have cable, so I just bought an indoor antenna so I could watch the games. Seems a bit silly, honestly, but that doesn’t change anything. So, I’ll probably watch some today. Don’t know how much. I stopped watching every Sunday because I had other things to do that were more important. I still do. But yet, here I am.
I moved back to Tempe when my marriage ended because I have close friends here, including my best friend (all of whom I met through Jiyusinkai aikido), and my mother lives just the other side of the CA/AZ border. I’ve reconnected with her nicely. I’m practicing aikido again on a regular basis, usually twice a week. I’m slowly working my way back into better physical condition, and that is supremely positive. The practice is excellent for my body and mind. Jiyushinkai holds two 3 day seminars every year. One of them is in AZ, and will be in April. I’m looking forward to it. Back before I left Tempe for WI, I used to play a concert during what was then a single 5 day seminar. I’ll be doing so again this year, and it should be a wonderful experience. It’s essentially playing for friends and family, and will be my first full blown concert since 2014. I need this. The aikido and playing live.
Still enjoying my job.
Still need to review my current batch of songs. I’ll likely listen at work this week, and during the drive to visit my mother next weekend.
That’s it for now. Y’all be good.
