Life is really, really great.

Darrell and I picked up a couple of matching Canon 450Ds (Rebel XSi) on ebay and have been gung-ho taking quality photographs in nature, and it's only been a week.

We're actually Doing Stuff Together. Learning Stuff. Getting Out of the House and Everything. Joy!

I seem to have enough work ahead of me to ensure a bit of job security for now, so I can relax and take on the piles of work ahead. It seems more managable now, perhaps because I've cleared out a lot of the overhang.

I have social energy again. I see people, and frequently have beloved houseguests.  (We *love* having houseguests.)  I also have time alone here and there. I seem to be shedding the social anxieties that held me back for several years.

I'm happy most of the time.  When was the last time I could say that?

I'm in a rock band. I may have mentioned this. Today I bought a tambourine and a hand chime. We get along, and Darrell's slowly becoming our unofficial sound man, and he's brilliant at it.  Our first gig is Saturday with a bunch of other bands in some rural area.

My love! We take photos and we make music! One or the other, every day! We also work together! Our marriage rocks!

And it's spring. So far, a colorful and warm spring.  I see potential photos everywhere. My gladiolus is stretching scattered spears toward the sky. No blooms yet for them, but they're coming.

Had a health screening. Flying colors. I don't feel my age, but I'm aware of it.  I'm thinking of ways to drink up and savor the life I have.

I feel light, warm, grateful.
