Your heart beats roughly 40,000,000 times in one year. More if you are stressed out, have emotional malfunctions or health issues, or drug problems. It beats fewer times if you exercise regularly and keep in peak athletic shape, and much less if you are dead. So every anniversary isn't just another year of time notched up, it is also a long-form seismic graph with millions of data points that ticked in harmony with your every emotional accord and discord. Maybe bear that in mind when you see your loved ones on their birthdays and relationship milestones and reward or punish them according to what they did for your heart that year. And perhaps come out and celebrate the one year anniversary of the excellent safe and sober all ages venue The Outer Space at 7 p.m. tonight because its continued existence in our community is good for all of our hearts. La Mancha and Grocery Outlit provide local support for Olympia's indie bands Trust Fall and Squill. Come raise your heartrate in a healthy way, with friends old and new ($6).
