blogathon: … and we’re off!

so here we are.  it’s 4:38 and my first entry for today needs to posted by 5:00 am.  it just started to dawn outside – canadian mental health associationor what i think is “started”, i never know how to measure that.  when i got up 10 minutes ago, the sky wasn’t dark anymore but there was no hint of sun yet.  now it has a yellowish-orange-ish tint.

i’m excited about this and not a bit queasy, like i was some times during the last few days (“what have you gotten yourself INTO, isabella?!?”).  right now all i’m thinking about how i’m connected to all these other bloggers from the vancouver blogathon and the blog-a-day, how this is going to be an experience of a lifetime, and how this is going to get me feel even stronger about the organization i’m sponsoring, the canadian mental health organization in the vancouver/burnaby region.

their mission is to

promote mental wellness and increase understanding of mental health issues through innovative and collaborative approaches in the areas of public education, accessible services and personal empowerment.

okay!  i’m prepared!  i have a huge stack of books here, have lots of fruit and protein snacks (am looking forward to  that hoummus), i DID prepare a few posts beforehand but certainly not 48, i made sure not to have any sugar, alcohol or caffeine in the last few days and won’t have any in the next 24 hours (that’ll just crash me.  i’ll make sure to have little bouts of meditation and “state changes” (i’ll tell you about that later) – so i’m ready!

let’s roll!

  1. What an interesting escapade this is. Just found out about your site and this 24 hour blog yesterday from a friend who works for CMHA Vancouver. I’m impressed by your website and plan to come back.
    Here’s hoping people will donate lots to CMHA…such a worthy organization of support!

  2. thanks everyone for visiting! it’s monday afternoon now, the blogathon is over, and i had LOTS of fun! and yes, no caffeine whatsoever. indeed, i think that’s one of the things that made the experience relatively easy for me.
