Song mood: Walk by the Foo Fighters. They’re on my list of bands that I want to see when bands start touring again. Them and U2.
Sometimes I get in this moods where I don’t want to be around people. Dogs are okay, or actually, way better than okay. But I went to a baptism of one of my cousin’s children. I made small talk, listened to others, laughed to other people’s jokes. Eventually, I felt better. I told myself, that I didn’t tell anyone I was having a bad day, smiled a bit, no one would know. I’m glad that I make myself do things when I’m in these moods. It gave me more family time, and that is a good thing.
I went through my Instagram feed, saw a few posts from my friends and cheered up. Now, I mostly tired and hungry. It’s tough cutting out my snacks.
I decided that I will probably go as Peter Parker for Free Comic Book Day. That way I can take my camera and take pictures. I’ll ask my photographer friend what he does so I can get some interesting pictures.
I think my taste is coming back. The other night I was eating my favorite cheese: brie with some pepperoni and the charcuterie just didn’t taste right. Then I ate some cherries and they definitely had an off taste. But now, it seems, everything tastes as it should. With the exception of oranges, they always don’t taste right. Last night’s fish-n-chips were awesome.
Tonight, I’m having charcuterie and tater tots. I know, a weird combination.
In Tai Chi, there is a concept of the 70% rule. Where if you do something, you do it at 70%. Breathing in and exhaling at 70%. For me this is a tough concept. Because I think I’m really a passionate guy. Which is why I can get mad easily, because I’m full of emotion. I want to do things full throttle. But working with Tai Chi, I’m learning how to take the middle ground. I’m learning that if I get upset with something, just sit back, breath a little. Work with the emotion and move on, or as I like to say, move to the next screen. And, I’m still a work in progress. For practicing the martial art, I’m still just working on basic movements. Baby steps.
Well, this me on a Saturday night. Not real exciting. Next up: watching mystery movies.
