I was so happy when I went to vote last week to see that people came out to vote... it was the first time in the six years that I've lived in this district that I had to wait in line to vote. While I had to wait three hours in the rain, I was still happy to see that people FINALLY seemed to care. This is a good thing!
I have unintentionally started down a path of "firsts." It started with acupuncture at VegFest on October 27th. A few days later I got my face painted for the first time as an adult. Later that week, I tried my hand at a pottery wheel. Last week, I was a "paid music consultant" for a night. (Okay, I was paid to listen to and rate 900 songs for a local survey group hired by a local radio station.) I joined a crochet group from an online site Thursday night. Yesterday, I had a salt therapy treatment at The Salt Room. (It was free - I like free :-) ) I don't know that I got any benefit from the treatment, but it was one of the best naps EVER. The lady next to me was getting her third treatment for eczema. She showed me her arm, which was clear and smooth, and told me that Monday it had been red and scaly. Two treatments in one week and her skin was clear after months of pain and redness.
Today, I made my first (but not last) trek to the Buddhist Center for a guided meditation class.
What new things have you tried recently?
