“Cautious, Positive Vibes”

In Uncategorized on April 10, 2010 at 2:42 pm

Have you ever been around a person or people that can be septic? I bring this up because of an awesome trip I just had in NYC. I went with a friend that I trust and respect, so that began the day very positively. We met up with another friend of hers before we went into the Jimmy Fallon taping….the musical guest was Dr. Dog. Great band and really positive, cool people too boot! We got to hang with them later too. I have to say the show was fun, then we went to see them again at the Apple store. Not only were we viewing them off side of the stage, but later an invite to their hotel…roof top veranda etc. Now, I’m making an example of this because it’s a recent experience, but also to state that I have new found hope for some of the human race. This band and their pals were generally down to earth, open, welcoming peeps. When you meet some of the good, you realize how bad septic people can be. It made me more aware that those you place around you can turn your energy numb or hopeful…I totally had a sleep deprived epiphany on the way home…I was subconsciously keeping an emotional vampire around me for a very long time and have become more pessimistic. Generally, when I go into the city I mentally prepare for the worst because of way my mom scared the crap out of me when I was a young teenager, this taken from a woman who doesn’t drive in Hartford to this day. Now I’m not saying life is flowers and cherries, but why not let it be if it is at the moment? Enjoy people, conversation, new opportunities and new friendships, just be prepared for those that take take take and make you think that you are receiving…Sounds naïve, but I am on many accounts….heck I work with kids and yet survive in the adult world too… all in all I’ve learned so much and see that more is possible than we realize and I look forward to meeting more of you that repair, write, create or kick ass in derby….Hope to see you out n about! Keep supporting local musicians, artisans and organic farmers! Sincerely, ~ LL~
