I had decided it was high time to go back to church, and I was very glad I did. Many of the people had heard about my accident so I didn't have to explain why I was hobbling around. It felt good to be around a bunch of people. The service today focused on Martin Luther King and changing one's world. The accompanying music included "Imagine" and "If I Had a Hammer."

Hearing those (and singing along) brought back the time that Peter, Paul, and Mary AND Pete Seeger were at the Jazz and Heritage Festival. Best of all, they performed back to back on a day when I didn't have classes or anything. (I was in graduate school at the time.) Everybody sang along, of course.

That's the closest I ever came to going to a "concert." When rock concerts etc. became popular I was solidly into wife-and-motherhood. I recall that we were in Florida (for moon launches) when Woodstock happened. I guess I'm just a bit too old to have had that concert experience.

On the other hand, I HAVE been to a con (science fiction convention.) It was in New Orleans, when Dr. Who (with Tom Baker) was popular. Something happened to the ride for YD and so we went there together. It was really quite interesting. Mostly I watched the movies they were running, and observed the people. YD went as Leela(?), the Companion of the Doctor. She had with her a model she had built of R2D2 (the robot dog) on a leash. (R2D2 had wheels.)

Other than that, I can't think of anything truly unusual that I've done lately, unless you count breaking a hip in Kenya. (That wasn't planned, however.)
