It was July 14, 2021 and another improv class! I decided to have some fun beforehand with another selfie photo shoot while debuting the new Kandi’s Land merchandise!
You will see a few of the photos here in this post. I have already and will continue to add some to the Gallery page and use them when the spirit moves me.
As before, the shoot was a blast and again, as before, I had the entire place to myself. I looked for different and unusual camera angles and could not have enjoyed myself any more.
Then I drove to class and had dinner at The Burntwood Tavern, where I have acquired yet another bartender friend (see a trend here?). An hour well spent.
Finally the evening wrapped with improv class. Always fun and this time I got to do a scene with the instructor. I was so much better with someone who knew what they were doing, which gave me time to think a bit better on my feet.
So here we go with some more pics!
Random Thoughts: Look, I know I am blessed to be able to dress as often as I do. But in many ways, it’s like giving an alcoholic one drink. They want more. I want more. With the pandemic restrictions lifting, I am seeking new and different ways to get out dressed. I am going to different places than I did before. I am seeking to find different experiences. That is why I did the movie thing. That is why I am working on what I hope will be a spectacular bridal photo shoot. That was the great joy of my afternoon at the selfie studio, the evidence of which you see above. That is why I am taking an improv class.
In a perfect world, I would be Kandi all the time. I do prefer this version of myself in general. (Although in a really perfect world, I would not have these feelings, thereby having Kandi never exist.) But we don’t live in a perfect world, there is no magic pill. And I will admit, I go back and forth on this all the time. I have a friend, whom I love, that on occasion will call BS on me. But I put my thoughts down on “paper” so to speak, for anyone to read it. And it changes based on current circumstances.
And we have circumstances, blessings, curses, we have made commitments, taken vows and all those mean something. So I will strive to be better, seek ways to be an example and keep trying to find inner peace and contentment because believe me, there is none right now. Self-acceptance, absolutely, thereby eliminating the old self-loathing and guilt. But peace and contentment? No way!
