CV Diary 2008
January - TRIP TO BELIZE & FLORIDA
Rough beginning for the month with terrible cold and tooth infection, leading to splitting headache - but great vacation to Belize to recuperate. Had tooth pulled in Belize. A little traumatic and took two weeks to heal. Carol and Richard were a trip to stay with in Belize. Margo and Matt, their friend, as well. We enjoyed our Island Caye Caulker stay for two days mucho. Finally got some beach, a hammock to rest. Bought lots of presents. Went to Belize Zoo and to the ruins. St Ignatio, couch surfed for the first time with Marcus. Met an astrologer trader. Got lots of bug bites. People were supper friendly. Went to ritz retreat. Met the doc that has a cancer treating program for Melinda. Met friends of Carol wherever we went.
Then to my dad's 90th birthday in Del Ray Beach. He looked the best he has in a long time. Helped Shira with expenses for the trip to be at the party.
Read Doug Graham's 80-10-10 book. Was skeptical of something so mathematical, but there is a holistic logic that resonated. So I started Graham diet on January 28th. So far so good. My energy is definitely up. Also read 4 hourwork per week book. Both readings are transformative.
February - Came back so refreshed, totally transformed office. Five day cleanup! Life is good. Continuing work on Hudson St house. Getting ready for tax season and filling many vacancies left while we were gone. Mucho leads to take care of.
March: Doctor's mailing bombed, but I got a couple new clients.
April: Presentation at Toward a Science of Consciousness Conference in Arizona: Naturolism: Seeing Organizing Principles of Life and Consciousness at the Depth-Core of Nature - Rather Than What's Robotic/Mechanical/Mathematical. Met more of Melinda's family and finished tax season while at conference. Could only attend half.
May: Ran 5 k Cobbleskill Arts Council Run; came in 2nd in 50-59 Age group. About 26: 45. It's a cashflow juggernaut. Hope to sell part of Franklin. Sonya died at 52. Very tragic! Went to orthodox bar mitzvah. Melinda's mother's side of the family. The mother's bother's children (three daughters were there with their kids). Melinda is doing well with her fasts. Shira is looking for new employment. Aaron is pursuing venture capital. Making plans to go to Taiwan for another academic Consciousness Conference. Getting much help with the Chinese language.
