12:56 pm - in which I am at least early, if embarrassingly so
So... part of the fallout from my depression over the last ten years or so has been the gradual and deliberate distancing of myself from my friends and from social activities in general. I am now working to reverse this trend, although it's difficult.

This is why I have joined a couple of Meetups - one for writers that I thought met today at 11am. Well, at least I got the day correct... it is at 2pm. Fortunately I can noodle around on the internet for hours at a time, so I anticipate being here still at the appropriate hour. Argh.

I'm also going to try getting together with a knitting group next week that meets on Tuesday afternoons. I keep finding out about these things the day after they happen! Fortunately Revolutions Espresso & Bakery hosts both, and is mere steps from my apartment. [Oh, and according to their sign they are serving Herkamer Coffee these days, for those who were part of that conversation the other day...]

Is that the NorthEnd Knitters group? One of my fellow SPs, Susan Collicott, just signed up as a fan of that. I think you'd like Susan -- she's kind but with a delicious little caustic streak, and she's unselfconsciously super-sharp. She's the one who made this tiny angler fish that I linked to a while back:

Yes, I believe it is. Or rather one of them, since they have multiple meetings... there is much fiber-y goodness to be had hereabouts. I'll keep a look-out for her, thanks.

I go to a few Meetups. I do enjoy the Read Shakespeare aloud group even if I don't make it very often. I tend to be at day jobbe on Sundays.

Perhaps we could find one of mutual interest to attend? I also volunteer at 826 one day a week--love it--The Greenwood Space Travel Supply store is wicked fun too.

That would be delightful!

Is 826 nearby? too cool, plus I have some extra art supplies I was thinking about donating to somewhere... thanks for reminding me of them.

Yes, 826 is on Greenwood near 85th fronted by the Space Travel Supply store but there's a transporter to take you further in.

I wonder if there's something in the air, or stars, or mass consciousness, or whatever. I'm feeling the need to reconnect and get more social, too. I'm thinking of putting together some events postings, along the lines of: here is what I'm going to be doing, anyone want to come along?

It *is* difficult to change course, when you're used to spending quantity time off alone.

I have found that to be the least stressful way of collecting people for something, in the past.

Awesome, I'll have to check one of the Herkimer locations out, for when I'm too lazy or it's too wet to roast my own coffee.

It was pretty tasty, there at Revolutions, yesterday.
