I've been absent again. And I've been thinking about why I can't seem to get into this Project Ninety x Ninety.
I think I've figured it out. A couple of things.
One: I'm busy. Not necessarily doing fun stuff but just taking care of business.
Two: and this is the main one: It's too broad a concept. Thirty years. I can't think that far ahead. I don't want to think that far ahead. (Denial may run in my family. Just sayin'.)
So...what to do?
Think I'm going to steal a line from Buzz Lightyear. I'm going back to Sixty x Sixty and just change it to "Project Sixty x Sixty... and Beyond."
I'll still have me a list of challenges. I'll still post but maybe not regularly. Or maybe it will be. It will be looser until I figure out exactly what I'm doing with myself.
Apologies for the confusion. It's my state of mind recently.
I have been having fun which is another part of the picture.
In the past month I have been to a musical with the former President George H.W. Bush and his lovely wife, Barbara. I have slept with Frank Lloyd Wright. I have partied with Florida Georgia Line.
Let me clarify.
A sweet friend took me to see the Sound of Music. A Sunday afternoon performance. The former Prez and his wife live in Houston and are great supporters of the arts. They were also in attendance and were acknowledged by the theater. It's funny, but I have been to three performances over the years where the Bushes have also been in attendance. This time was particularly interesting as we happened to walk out right as they were also leaving. Traffic was stopped- both pedestrian and vehicular. Mr. Bush was wheeled out in his wheelchair. Secret Service men swarmed. The Bushes were loaded up and some very innocuous looking cars suddenly started flashing lights. Off they drove. I was probably 40 feet from them at the time.
Apparently this is the obligatory "I was here" photo.
Sleeping with Frank Lloyd Wright? Well, of course not literally. He's been dead since I was four- that would be gross. But I did visit a friend whose house has art. And over my futon was a piece of wallpaper- original and hand printed-from his home furnishings collection, Taliesin. Tacked to the wall with push pins. I was petrified a stretch during the night would result in a wallpaper tear.
And Florida Georgia Line? They were at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo where I went with my friend Martha.
Me and Martha.
Contemplating new careers
as Rodeo Clowns.
They were much twangier in person than I expected. But a great show and a wonderful evening.

Anyway, to infinity and beyond!!
(And getting a great giggle at the fact that I've managed to include a toy action figure, a country music band, a former President and an acclaimed architect in one post.)
