Every time we come back to Atlanta, I realize how much it's become our home.
And every time we leave I wonder when we'll be back and under what circumstances.
We were back this time primarily for Skye's orthodontist. Which is the reason we were back the last time, that lead to my impromptu job interview that landed us back there for a three month stay.
This time around we were originally going to only be there for a week, but then trek back up from Baton Rouge to run the Georgia Spartan race. When my job got pushed we decided to stay for two weeks.
We checked in at the Highland Inn which Skye and I had stayed in before. It's close to our old stomping grounds down in Inman Park and you can't beat the price.
We ending up at Cafe 640 which sits right next to the Highland Inn several times catching up with friends and enjoying a cocktail or two.
I became particularly fond of the 640 Bloody Mary and actually enjoyed their Home-made Limoncello, which is usually too sweet for my tastes.
We hung out mostly with local Atlantans that we.ve met on film projects we worked on, as well as our circus peeps and X-3 regulars.
But since Atlanta's become such a film hub we also saw several Angelenos who happened to be working on projects in town.
We rejoined the High Museum and went to see the Frida & Diego exhibit.
I would recommend both. We became members a year or so ago and have been to several wonderful shows there as well as Skye participating in one of the digital photography classes they offer.
Frida & Diego; Passion, Politics and Paintings really does show you their passion, for one another, art, politics and Mexico. Very interesting collection of both of their works.
The Best Cancer to Have
Unfortunately, I've heard this on more than one occasion. My various dermatologists are referring to basal-cell carcinoma. " Basal-cell carcinoma (BCC), a skin cancer, is the most common cancer. It rarely metastasizes or kills. However, because it can cause significant destruction and disfigurement by invading surrounding tissues, it is still considered malignant.'" Thanks Wikipedia.
My doctor ended up freezing several off my face and body as well as taking a couple of precautionary biopsies. One on my face which is going to require surgery.
Oh well, at least its the best cancer to have, which I sincerely mean. After having melanoma removed and knowing too many people that have had cancers kill them in a most horrible way, BCC is not much more than an inconvenience.
Full Disclosure, in the the above picture my face was beat up in jiujitsu class the day after my dermo visit, probably not the best of combos.
On my way to circus class, I passed this great shirt, unfortunately they were all out.
In our two weeks in Atlanta, I did manage to get to several circus classes, yoga and jiujitsu. I'm hoping to find some of the same ilk here in Baton Rouge.
It's getting late, or rather early I suppose, 4:40 am, so I better get to bed or something.
Tomorrow starts another work adventure.
Maze Runner here I come.
