It's A Beautiful Day

I ran the third session of my Champions campaign the other day and it was 'the awesome'. I needed it. I've been down lately and that was a major pick me up.

Today I'm going to see my ex-wife at the Learning/Afterschool/Activity Center she runs. Some of the kids have shown interest in learning to play RPGs and she asked that I make an appearance and explain a little more about them before she and I grab some dinner. Nice huh? I think so. She may be including RPGs as an activity on weekends during her summer program.

I feel so strange right now as I write this. My world is kind of in chaos and I have some serious personal stuff going on but in these moments I couldn't be happier. Gaming is, for me at least, a point of light in the darkness when I need it most. Sounds sappy and a bit melodramatic I know but I don't know how else to put it.

Game On, Shine On,

  1. I understand. I feel the same way about gaming. It's such a welcome distraction from all the bullshit that life heaves on us. Good luck with all your stuff!

  2. My second session of Mutant Future was yesterday, and I had no idea how much I needed it. It's clensing to the ol' brain-palate.

    Stay well.

  3. That does sound cool. Hope you tell us how it went. Sorry to hear about the other stuff getting you down. Keep gaming.

  4. Feeling good everyone. At least as far as the weekend was very uplifting. My problems still exist but they aren't getting me down as long as I know there is gaming to be found.


  5. Look at that. A little poem to boot. Not too shabby.

  6. It is funny... gaming doesn't take a ton of space (not like a sport), or even money (I still play sometimes using rulebooks I've had since I was 10 or 12) - all it really takes is time, and when things get low that's often something you have plenty of, to the point of wishing that it would speed up.

  7. Heh, too true.

    We wish we had more time to game but more time to game is sometimes a bad sign as it means less time working and making money.

    Of course if I made more per hour I suppose it would balance out, lol.
