The rain ended and there are a lot of people with flooded basements, much worse than ours. The rivers at full and the worst of the flooding is over… for now. The sun has been shining and the weather is warm again. It is nice.
The first two days of my wild week are over. The Downtown Business Association board meeting was just about what I expected. That organization needs serious help. We did make progress tonight even though it doesn't seem like that to some. Thankfully the board is not meeting in the summer and the executive can just carry on with the work.
Tomorrow I start to write my speech for the CFC panel. I've got some good ideas, now it is the time to just sit and write. I think I want to be optimistic with them. Focus on the great things that people are doing, the new connections that are being formed globally. Remind them to bring those connection to a community level. Creativity and giving voice to the community workers. We'll see where it goes.
Anyhow, that is all I have for today. I need to do some more writing this week too, and work on this painting that is half done. Oh boy. Lots to do.
