It's Not Easy Being Green

"Take me away again to Margaritaville..." or anywhere else for that matter. The winter blues have me wanting to head to sunnier climes. Will this winter ever end?!

Emotions have been pretty raw around here many things have changed in so many ways and the events that we used to look forward to with great anticipation are now a source of sadness. Which is why I'm trying to figure out a budget-friendly getaway March 19-21. The best course of action is just to get out of town! Anyone have a condo in a tropical locale? Or any locale that's not here? We need to get as far away as possible from anything green.

It may not a tropical locale, but Nicole and I are heading to Hattiesburg on Sunday to see our sweet Megan Poole perform in the USM production of "Ragtime." Megan was the great assistant Nicole had over the summer. She's a talented young woman, and we look forward to seeing her on stage.

Last night I met up with Nic at Fondren after One Blue Wall gallery. We were there for Charles Brices' photography show, "Tour of Duty," featuring photos from his 10 1/2 months in Afghanistan. The work was moving and poignant, and we were so proud for Charles. His sweet wife, Talameika, looked stunning in her butterfly dress, and it was great meeting her mom, Thelma.

After a delicious dinner of grilled talapia at Aladdin, we went over to the old Duling school for an impromptu concert by Wooden Finger. It was my first time to hear Allison Jenkins sing. She has a strong, haunting voice that was simply beautiful. The acoustics in the old school were fabulous--no microphones needed for the intimate setting. There were lots of familiar faces there...yet they weren't all as friendly as they once were. That, of course, caused some heartache. Yet another reason to get the hell out of Dodge for a few days soon.

Time to get up and moving...I'm still working on my ever-growing office organization project and I'm volunteering at the MS Museum of Art this that Jim Henson's Fantastic World. They're presenting an interactive showing of The Labrynth tonight, and Jim Henson's daughter will be there. That should be interesting!

As you go about your day today, please remember that the things you say and do have an impact on others. Don't do anything that will hurt another. Instead, behave in a way that will lift others up. Just be nice. Remember, it's not easy being green.
Blessings to all who read this!
