Fluffy Najour and a few other things
Hello blog readers. Thanks for checking in. Today's post is gonna be a lil' heavier than usual, but that is how it goes. This blog is about sharing the good and the bad--the happy and the sad so here we go!
Let's start with the happy! B and I are at 90% of our goal for KICKSTARTER! 90% is amazing--100% will be better. Thank you all so much for your support. We have two weeks left to raise the other $385 so PLEASE do not wait any longer. Today is the day for you to help us if you haven't already. Here is the link:
HELP US MEET OUR GOAL
Ok--so tomorrow is my last day of school. I actually go through the grieving process at the end of every semester. As my students leave and venture out---let's just say that it is bittersweet watching them go. Many of them stay in touch--which I LOVE--but things change, and that is what makes it difficult.
Right now I am in a bit of a funk. Mostly, I'm paralyzed by fear--fear of what is next. I have so much to do right now, but am having a hard time focusing and feeling motivated. I'm sure this will pass--it just sucks right now because each day I fall further and further behind. I'll make it through--I always do. I have no shows scheduled this week, but starting next week I have like 11 shows in a row. That is frighteningly awesome.
As far as the documentary goes--we are on a little bit of a stand still right now--which is fine. B and I are getting stuff organized, making that final push for our funds, and planning the next leg of the race. Everything will fall into place--we just have to be patient with each other and with the process.
Ok--so here it is. We have lost an honorary tinysuperstar. Today, Fluffy Najour passed on to the next world. Fluffy was 15, and Bridget loved her more than anything. This is a very sad day so we must ALL keep B in our thoughts. She is such a strong and awesome person but I know that this is a really hard thing to deal with--so PLEASE send B your love and do something today to honor Fluffy Najour. I will be planting a tree and naming said tree Fluffy. That way--the memory of her will live on for many many many years! I will leave you all with a few snaps of the most beautiful dog in the world and two haikus in honor of Fluffy and Bridget!
Running in the sky
Fluffy is proud of you B
Never really gone

Loved all over the world
Keep on truckin boo
That's it for today--tomorrow's post is gonna be brilliant AND funny so check back in the afternoon for pics of my last day of class, a new list, and lots of other stuff! TJ OUT!
