Like A Prayer
I'm so thankful to everyone - all 2 of you - who have inquired as to why my blog has become somewhat, erm, slower. No no no, astute observation, one with merit ... the simple truth is, I've been taking my own "30 Over 30" advice and unfortunately, my writing time has suffered as a result. In all honesty, I think it will return to a more normally scheduled frequency as the daylight continues to grow longer. I am a light-sensitive sleeper meaning, if it's light outside I usually have difficulty sleeping. But if it's dark? All bets are off. Lady Gaga might like to dance in the dark, but homeboy like to sleep in it!
The good news is I've been to the gym 13 times already in January. Mostly for cardio but also for different varied exercise/strength training workouts too. I typically do some sort of pilates daily, even if it's just 20 minutes with peripheral equipment I have at my house.
I also have 3 appointments tomorrow: dermatologist for a full-body scan, my regular doctor for a checkup, and dentist tomorrow afternoon. I'm taking a "health day" to bang them all out once. If you haven't had a physical examination or been to the dentist in over a year, do something good for yourself and go. Prevention is the best medicine, and it's definitely the way of healthcare in the future.
I had coffee with my esteemed pal Eduardo and his SO on Saturday afternoon, and he grimaced when he described Madonna's performance on Help For Haiti Now. I hadn't seen it, but quickly did and had to text him to politely disagree. For a stripped down, live studio performance I thought this was amazing. I saw her on the "Sticky and Sweet" tour in late 2008 and this was, to me, the highlight of that entire set. Hard to believe the song is now 21.5 years old, but still so fantastic. I do think she could lay off the plastic surgery face because, let's face it, she's looking a bit like that ventriliquist's puppet "Madame," but hey, she's still Madonna.
My thoughts and prayers continue to be with the people of Haiti.
