The joyful day!

My weekend

It's been a weekend. Here is the quick rundown

I was involved in a Lakota ritual for the dead, complete with a steam lodge. It was one of the most extreme, wonderful, painful and exhilarating moments of my life. I didn't make it to the end. I had to bail out of the lodge (after about 2 hours) as I was about to pass out. But it was amazing, life affirming and mind opening experience. My friend Susan is doing well, as well as she can be under the circumstance. I'll try to write more about this in a day or so, once I process the information a little more.

I was in a Karoake contest, at the urging of the wife. I won 3rd place. Singing Elvis Costello in a place that is mostly a country bar. Go figger ...

Went swimming with the mutants today and got sunburned. Another oddly exhilarating moment

My set at Boheme tonight was great. I played ...

Low Self Esteem
Trophy Wife
Bang My Bald Spot
Nice Guys

I stuck with the older stuff tonight, since I wanted to see if I could sell some CDs. I sold one ... cool

Regardless of some of the circumstances it was a great weekend.
