A Place with no History

Saturday night, I went to go see the opening night of the play "The Agitators." If you live in Rochester, please come see this play. If you don't live in Rochester, either consider making the trip or look into getting a local theatre company put on a production of the play.

It was an amazing production about the lives of Fredrick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony, who both have roots here in Rochester. During the play, a thought struck me. Actually, it struck me during the prologue discussion, when the presenter talked about how native Rochesterians were probably aware of the fact that these two civil rights icons were friends. Rochester has a history and depth to it that the place I grew up doesn't have.

Bundle of Worries

Yesterday, my brother went to the hospital, with a blood sugar level over 700.

I'll give you a second to Google that, but holy fuck is it not good.

It worrying, he's my little brother; two years younger than I am. And this happens. In addition to his appendix almost bursting just over a year ago. I worry about his health.

And I worry about mine. I'm overweight, and it's always been such a freaking struggle to fight it. And It's something that I need to keep going with, if I want to live any kind of long life.
