the thrills have to fade...

before they come round again... so says my old' buddy jackson browne...

why bring him up??? well here i sit today just a little deflated after a manic high of elation yesterday... friday is traditionally clean up day in every sense of the word - i mean you want to start monday off with as clean a slate as possible...

now yesterday was a 17 hour work day for me ... and well worth it ... i came in at 6 a.m. because i knew that the cchd grant application was due that day, no ifs ands or buts... so absent a 2 hour slot to go pick up a check from community shares (and buy a decent bottle of chardonnay) i worked through this on-line application ...

but midway through the day we received an e-mail from abe at cuadp and "went" to watch the web cast of the debate over the moratorium and study bill in the nj senate - we got there just in time and as you all probably know it was no contest at 30 - 6 in favor!

AWESOME! - tcask sent out a press release just to alert our own legislators and statewide media and especially to give our supporters something to celebrate and feel good about - we all need to do victory laps, long distance high-5s, and dance to gloria gaynor's "i will survive" in the office on occasion ... and yesterday was such a day ...

and then back to the grant application and when i hit the submit button at 11:05 p.m. last night i felt the weight of the world melt from my shoulders <ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...>

and that was a great end to a great day...

but today - a little ennui, a little deflation, a little focus on mundane tasks ... cleaning off the desks, putting up the 2006 planning calendars (yeah, we're a little late, what are you gonna do - execute me???), printing off 2-up tcask thank you cards and cutting them in half on the $15 cutter, and stuff like that ...

but that's a part of organizing too ... the small, otherwise unnoticeable tasks, the attention to details, the run-of-the-mill s__t that must be attended to in order to remain systematic, focused, and on top of the strategic gameplan ...

so it's okay that things are running in 3/4 time today cause as my buddy jackson notes...

All good things got to come to an end
The thrills have to fade
Before they come 'round again
The bills will be paid
And the pleasure will mend
All good things got to come to an end
All good times, all good friends
All good things got to come to an end...

for now ... peace out from music city usa
