This consistency thing is going to take some getting used to.  I don’t have my groove yet.  So, this post may be rusty and disjointed…warning you ahead of time.  How’s your foray into consistency?  Hope it’s going well.

Sirskatesalot gave a talk at the gallery where he couldn’t attend opening night a few weeks ago (see post “In Absentia”).  Our family went and lots of friends and some other folks.  It was fun to see him with his works in the gallery and nice to feel the support…After about an hour of hanging out, the camera started rolling and Sirskatesalot was on the spot.  Take 1 and only 1.  He answered questions and explained a little about art, his history, his process.  Impressive and engaging.  I am not biased.  I even asked a question or two.

Some of the fun was seeing him in action, in his element, relaxed, alive.  The other fun part was hearing from friends how impressed they were with his presentation when they normally just know him as another dad on the track or at dance or at a party.  One of the coolest parts of the day was driving home with a van full of kids asking questions.  And one big, hairy teenager who was surprised and proud of his pops.  Princelightningbolt saw a side of his pops he had heard about, but not seen first hand.  He wondered if that is where he gets his public speaking skills (“Pegging Those Teens”).  Yep.  I think he inherited that gene…and not from his mother. Teens proud of parents are kind of rare, so kind of exciting…

We had a great family dinner over the best ever mac n cheese from the Pure Flavor cookbook (buy it, it is worth this one bitchin recipe!).  Luckily, I’m meeting two new running pals in the morning to run it off.  I hope your weekend was fulfilling and that you are being consistent.  I’m going to keep on keepin on…I think it will get easier…and hopefully (for all our sakes) better, soon.
