I disappeared “secretly” to Florida this past week. Got the opportunity to watch my buddy Kevin compete in the Pan IBJJF Jiu-Jitsu Championship tournament in Orlando (and new buddy Darla too). Also to make a surprise visit to my parental units. And to have a mental getaway of sorts. We cooked and ate more seafood than I ever have, and no complaints were had. Some excellent Cuban food was found. Spent a day at the beach. And a night in NOLA for dinner on the way home for some oysters and Cajun seafood, and beignets for breakfast. This may have been a food tour as well. During the length of the tournament, I observed a lot about something I didn’t know anything about or had ever paid attention to before, and asked questions that were probably a little repetitive to them both, but they endured. Considering the way my path changed a few years ago, and everything I’ve dealt with since, this might be what I need to pursue for myself.
