I've been bad about writing lately. And not just here. In general. My writing has dwindled to a few hundred words a day. There are reasons, but still.

I am working on some new original fic, if I can ever get Brain to give me actual story instead of just back story and world building. And, I have a few fan fic bits started that I will finish eventually.

However, what's been eating up a lot of my time is something I never thought I'd get into.

Wherein I blather on about the oddity that is my life. )

Today is not a bad pain day. In fact, I'm as close to pain free as I ever get, somewhere around a four or so on the 1-10 scale.

That said, I am fighting an increasing urge to binge eat. I'm an emotional roller coaster, three inches from tears at any given moment, six from a complete melt down. Part of it is delayed stress over the money situation, part of it is stress over the medical situation.

Cut for my trigger, medical talk, fat talk, etc )

Though, speaking of gigs and photography...

I'm headed to Phoenix/Tucson in just over a month. I will be there for a Great Gig in the Sky gig at the Sail Inn in Phoenix on April 12, driving down to Tucson sometime on Saturday, and headed home from there. I am available to do photos if you are interested in portraits with a personal touch. Comment or email me (revamara at comcast.net) and we'll work something out.

For those that don't know, Great Gig is a Pink Floyd tribute band, lead by former Kane guitarist, Jason Southard. Ryan Baker, also from Kane's band, plays drums (and occasionally other things). Add in a fabulous keyboard player, an amazing guitar player, an adorable bass player and two AMAZING female vocalists along with random guest musicians, and what you have is an incredible group put together by Mick Treadwell, who was part of staging Pink Floyd's biggest tours. Jason's vocals will BLOW YOU AWAY.

And if you're SF Bay Area, or along I-5 or I-10 and are interested in riding along.... )

Well, that was way more words than I actually sat down to type.

Oddly, I feel a little better though. I'm always more focused when planning some event.

What about you?

What makes you feel more focused?
What helps you through the dark days?
What never fails to make it better?

1) Your earphones are more likely to convey music to your ears if you actually plug them in to the music player.
2) I'm glad I live on the west coast and not in Upstate NY any more, judging just by the forecast I saw a few minutes ago.
3) I have the munchies
4) Steve Carlson's "Casual Smile" affects me. IN MY PANTS.
5) There will be shenanigans in April.
5a) April 12-15, will be driving to Phoenix/Tucson area
5b) April 27 & 28, will be going to Dry Creek Passport weekend.
6) I love Marriott points and free night vouchers
7) Men continue to be stupid.

In related news to #7...possibly a little TMI...but then again...not if you know me... )

In news related to #5a )

And now...my lunch break is over...and I need to get back to being busy.

So, Ryan Baker and Jason Southard are extraordinary musicians. I of course, met them through Kane, but right from the start, I was interested in what else they did, because it was clear that Kane was just the tip of the iceberg.

I wasn't wrong.

Cut for rambling about music, musicians, friends and the relative strangeness of being recognized by strangers )
