Being Thankful

, , ,

Starting on Nov 29th, I am determined to be thankful for what I have. I've been extraordinarily blessed with family, friends, and success. I've been on the bottom and I know what that feels like. I never want to be accused of not appreciating how fortunate I am.

For 26 days--one for each letter of the alphabet--I will tweet to my larger audience something for which I am thankful. I encourage you to do the same. I'll be hashtaging #26DaysofGratitude #ThankfulFor and then linking this post. If it goes viral I'll probably break my server.

Today, I am #ThankfulFor Ackroyds -- @HeatherLynnA's family have been warm despite the distance. #26DaysofGratitude http://bit.ly/1xWWOX3

The start date is not completely arbitrary, it is the 26 days prior to Christmas. That's the day we celebrate the gift that was given to us by God: his presence among us. It would be a gift we destroyed (God knew it would happen) so that God could show us how much he loves us by undoing our harm and raising us up in love. My gratitude for that act can't be adequately expressed except by doing it for others.

So this year be prepared for seemingly random shout-outs from me about how much I appreciate your gifts to me. Gifts you may not know you have given me. Gifts you may not even be aware you have.

Thank you, all of you. And If I don't get you in the next 26 days, make sure I know it so I can be sure to thank you personally.

Female Fans Deserve an Epic Campaign

, , ,

It seems to me that with all the female fans trying to reeducate the male fans about proper behavior at conventions and shows, it is necessary to have some compelling educational materials.

Burns Night “Toast to the Immortal Memory” 1/25/2014

, , ,

In Alloway, the Burns museum allowed us an opportunity to examine much of Burns personal effects and to walk through parts of his life illustrated in the poems, songs, art and politics of his day. It is a marvelous museum, by the way and I strongly urge you to visit it if you get the chance. It served, ultimately, as an overview of the connection I found myself making.

The London Riots have been a long time coming

, , ,

From a dedicated Anarchist sentiment (You can hardly call it an actual political movement) to smaller riots sparked off by things like kettling students, soccer matches, and police brutality the government had to have known that this was going to be a real possibility if they took a lazy attitude to the proceedings.

House Concert featuring John Anealio

, , ,

August 19th, 2011
6:30pm to 11:00pm
Edgewater, MD
Admission: Free

With little more than an alternate-tuned acoustic guitar and a dog-eared copy of The Hobbit, Sci-Fi Songwriter John Anealio composes and performs geeky anthems for writers, librarians, lovers of Science Fiction, Best Buy customers, and robots. His music sounds like John Mayer, Weezer, and James Taylor playing Dungeons and Dragons together on their iPhones.
