1. I've been out living my life and I forget to write about it.
2. I've been spending tons of free time with all the folks I love - enjoying the fellowship of family and friends (tis' the season people...) and eating tons of good food.
3. Speaking of Tons, I'm tired of what I see on the scale so going to the gym every day has also become (yet again) a part of the daily routine. This part is hard, but I really do pray about it and everytime I ask for the Spirit to help me get through my prayer is answered and I WORK the workout. ;-)
4. Got invited to see "THE KATRINA PROJECT: HELL AND HIGH WATER" at the Lincoln Theatre ....a quick thought cannot describe how moved i was by this presentation. See following note.
Award-winning ‘Katrina Project’ arrives in Washington
Special to the American
Hattiesburg High School students will travel to Washington, D.C., to present a performance of “The Katrina Project: Hell and High Water,” an emotional journey into the hearts and souls of Hurricane Katrina’s survivors.
The one-night performance, sponsored in part by the National Education Association Foundation, is a fundraiser that will benefit arts and music education programs in Mississippi public schools affected by the 2005 storm.
Student involved with “The Katrina Project: Hell and High Water” toured New Orleans’ Ninth Ward before traveling to Washington.
“The Katrina Project” was written by two Mississippians, National Education Association Executive Committee member Michael Marks, a high school dramatic arts and debate teacher, and Mackenzie Westmoreland, “The Katrina Project: Hell and High Water” is based on actual interviews, collected stories and found texts, all of which provide a voice for the survivors of the greatest natural disaster in America’s recorded history.
The play follows a diverse group of characters as they experience and reflect on the devastation, heartbreak, anger, and – ultimately – hope of the thousands of individuals affected by the Category 5 storm.
The show will be performed at 8 p.m. today at The Lincoln Theatre, followed by a reception
5. Had to pay respects at the Corporate Holiday Party. (anyone feel me on this?)
6. Totally and Thoroughly enjoyed my departmental corporate holiday outing today! Closed corporate IT - did lunch at some italian joint in columbia - then rocked out at shadowland for lasertag. It's totally a game that you can suck at and still have a great time and lots of laugh. Great way to spend time with the co-workers in a totally new and fun way.
7. Planning to attend a diversity breakfast on Friday morning.
Thats all in addition to the regular stuff that I HAVE to do every day. Reason enough not to be sittin around blogging? I do think so.
Will be back with the whirlwind settles just a bit.
Wishing everyone peace on earth and good will to men. ;-)
