I’ve noticed a lot of blogs have a “day of silence” on their blogs today. It’s a nice gesture, in light of current events. I’m not doing it because silence has never been something I’m good at. Plus, it’s not technically a day of silence if you post about it being a day of silence, is it?
(And I don’t believe that silence and prayer is the answer to our nation’s problem. I’ll leave it at that.)
That said…just a few things from the weekend.
Leslie won her age group in a race over the weekend. Frosty’s 10 mile Run—1:31:50. Very speedy lady. As you can see she got a medal! Her husband suggested she pose like that…she had a better picture of herself eating the medal on instagram but she didn’t text me that one. I’ll add it later if I can.
I can, I can! She felt like maybe this wasn’t a big deal as there weren’t many people entered, but I disagree. This, other than getting married, is perhaps Leslie’s greatest accomplishment!
Anyway, congrats to her, she’s pretty awesome!
We went to the circus! (Circus Flora performed with the Symphony.) And then, even more fun, at a party later we met one of the performers—he did “the straps” which involves going up really high in the air and doing all kinds of acrobatics. His routine involved an umbrella. It was so cool to meet a person in the circus and to ask ridiculous questions like, “how does it feel to follow your dreams?” Yeah, somebody actually asked that. It’s particularly funny when you know that this was a party full of musicians, and we were all thrilled to learn about somebody who followed their dreams…
And then there’s this…
