Have any of you guys seen "Hair" before? Oh my God! I just saw it for the first time last night and I was on the verge of sobbing the whole time - an excess of joy brings tears. The music was unreal, the dance, the story, the way freedom and passion manifested itself in the performers... Ugh! I can't handle it. Nothing will ever be the same.

I am now both jobful and soon to be homeful. I am going to be living in a neighborhood with trees that's less that a block from the lake and has a huge dance studio/performance space as its front room. I've also started work at a vegetarian restaurant that's less that three blocks away from my new place. Balance is being restored, synchronicities abound, and Spring is in Summer...

Though many of us know how lackluster the food culture in America's southeast can be, I experienced a wonderful little bright spot the other day when driving through Alabama. From the highway, all you can really see in driving through Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Tennessee, and probably most of America is Exxon's, Burger King's, Waffle Houses, Walmarts, and all the shit that makes you think the country is going to the birds. However, in looking for a vegetarian place to eat on a road trip with my mom, we found a place called Grace's Fajita Shack or some such unassuming name. Let me tell you, it was amazing - a little pink house with a walk up window and a hand done menu advertising that all of their food was prepared in house (pun intended) with local and organic produce! In ALABAMA! I also saw a sign for buylocalalabama.com. It really shifted my thinking as far as some of the harsh criticisms I often level against the southeast. Apparently, there still are people down there who are trying fight the continual degredation of our food supply. Yay!
