Sweetheart of the Rodeo

This is the hanging on part of winter that just about knocks you out.  It’s the middle of April and there’s snow in the forecast.  Luckily I’ve dug deep into my emotional tool box and I think I’m going to make it.  I skipped my welding class tonight to deal with an almost overwhelming amount of work to do.  I’ve made my lists and prioritized what needs to get done.  I’m checking things off and celebrating their completion.  I picked up another bike since my little bike blog (I just posted it but it was written 3 days ago).  In fact when I picked this one up the owner of the home yelled out his window “thank you!”  I don’t think he’ll mind me cutting it up to make instruments for the rodeo.  The what?  That’s right, I said rodeo.

So Bethel Lutheran Church in Roseville CA made the smartest move ever and invited Kjel Alkire and yours truly to bring the Jesus Rodeo out to CA.  What is the Jesus Rodeo?  I can’t really explain it, but maybe if you pictured the love child of Vacation Bible School and The Burning Man you might be onto something.  It’s Kjel’s ongoing interactive performance art installation and I get to carry the audible end of the torch.  If I explained it anymore I’d need way more gigs than this motherboard can put out.  (I don’t think that means anything.)

But the Rodeo is one of the projects that could potentially overload me, but with the deft handling of my self help books, journaling, and cognative therapy I’ve mastered it and it’s become my inspiration!  #95 in the LBW.
