so marking this complete. Maybe a little too well since I am not getting other things done! lol
This last week I went to an international food market with my son, had fun looking at houses to buy and dreamed a little, spent a day out with friends, church, shopped, and took walks. 16 months ago

Today someone told me about a street of little eclectic shops and bars that stay open until midnight the first Friday of the month. I decided to go and see what it was about. I was hoping I wouldn’t feel too out of place being alone. It actually ended up being very nice!
It was full of energy! People were weaving in and out of tiny close quartered shops. The used bookstore had books stacked clear to the ceiling and you could barely move past another. There was a retro shop of the 60’s furniture and decor. The owner even was a step back in time with his style.
There were many artist shops, bars, diners, and even 2 porn shops. Which I found that their mannequins in the windows sported very well endowed figures compared to the flat features of the typical chains store. It cracked me up.
Lastly there were street performers. Several styles of music, belly dancers, fire spinners, and a creepy looking guy singing that looked like he was from the Silence of the Lambs.
I loved every moment of it. It would have been nice to go with a friend or two but even alone it was nice and I am glad I did it. 17 months ago
I saw a movie recently. I just enrolled into a gym membership forcing me to be out with others. The grocery attendant and I are on first name basis now due to my weekly treks to Trader Joes. Is this sad? It doesn’t matter if it is we’ve talked about biking in the spring and it fills me with hope just to have someone to do something with. Lastly I’ve been regularly attending church though haven’t become involved yet. 17 months ago
go walk around in a artist’s village near here. Maybe it will inspire me back into creativity. 17 months ago
I went to church this morning. It felt good on many levels and I was out of the house. 18 months ago
I don’t know how or when it started but I stopped going out and enjoying things again. The last time I understood why. This time I don’t. I need to stop and have new experiences or else what will I become? The scary woman in the closed up creepy house? That old lady with the cats one day? The Hermitress? I want to be welcoming and a part of being welcoming is being happy. For me being happy means adding to new life experiences. 18 months ago
