It has been a couple months since I last posted, so I am now committed to blogging more regularly. I find that the exercise of blogging is therapeutic for my soul and psyche, and going long periods without, for me, has the same effect as lapses in physical exercise and lapses in creative expression; both of which I try to avoid going without for any prolong period. So, what have I been up to the last couple months? Actually we can say, what did I do this entire summer. Let’s see.
I have most importantly, spent quality time with the family in the form of a couple beach trips.
I have experienced my oldest daughter’s first summer in between the school year which has consisted of a variety of summer camps. (Kudos to my wife for her stellar organization and scheduling skills and making this period seamless and smooth for us all!)
Next, I attended a college friend’s wedding and got to spend time with some other college buddies, and it was at my old NC mountain stomping grounds. It felt really good to revisit this terrain, and was both a beautiful wedding ceremony and scenery.
I got to take my daughters to their first concert, and their first live baseball game which they thoroughly enjoyed. I also got to attend another concert with my wife that was on my music bucket list.
Speaking of music, I got to listen to a lot of good new music, and make some new music for myself and my best friend’s new project. (congrats to my pal and the birth of his baby girl during this time!)
And of course, I’ve read a lot of good books, watched a lot good movies, and played some good video games these past couple months.
Finally, I tried to keep my physical fitness up, the whole time, in the form of regular, weekly gym sessions and pickup basketball. The weather has been extremely hot and rainy so the outdoor activity has been very limited, but I have tried to compensate in the form of hard workouts, good nutrition, and supplementation. As a matter of fact, these last two months I have been doing a form of fasting called time restricted feeding which I will blog about soon. I feel really good, but we will see what the results are since I am in the process of my annual physical and blood work as we speak.
That about wraps it up, and it has been a very fruitful and enjoyable past couple months. I look forward to writing in detail about some of these things, very soon.
