City work, trying to force relaxation upon myself, etc
It's chilly out here and I'm enjoying cool night in the Airstream. Now that I've extricated myself from my place of business, my apartment, and a multitude of other obligations, I'm looking up and still swamped. What to do? Besides the visions of furthering recycling in the region and working on more local government housecleaning and improvements, pretty much the future holds cooking and music, and hopefully not much else. Everything I own is no for sale minus my structures that I function within (Airstreams) and a couple of vehicles. I have to hold on to 2 drum sets, 2 bass rigs and some miscellaneous guitar/keyboard/etc equipment in order to function as an occasional "pro" musician, but the rest is up for grabs. Looking for approximately 3/4 of face value for people I know and market value for the rest. Anyway, I'm setting up a TV in the Airstream soon to try to force myself to go home and watch movies or whatnot at night. January 1 I'll be opening Boyz2Men tacos 4 days a week for a 2 month trial period and also be quitting drinking UNTIL Lent. that will work better for fun and relaxation for me this year, and will give me about 50 "dry" days during a busy work season. Although Marfa is DEAD during the early part of the calendar year, it's a great time to get ahead on building projects, long term planning [see Beebe- PadresMarfa, Jan-Mar 2009, Jan-Mar 2010, Jan- Mar 2011] and the like.
