Hi. Just lounging about … you?

a list of tunes that struck my fancy a few years ago – nice to see I still like them. Of course, I’ve liked them for years and years, so there’s that – Sinead, Dire, U2, Crash Test, Love & Rockets.

Why do I return to the screen after these past weeks? Well, I had a bit of success, feeling all sorts of triumphant, thought I’d let the fingers go W I L D !!!!

hey I like this setup!

being able to help the ones you love dearly, especially when they are quite anxious over the challenge (in this instance, perhaps a password to a password manager had been forgotten, with the answer being locked in a second password manager. No, no idea what that password is either. Sigh.) … er, LastPass rocked by having a way to reset the password of a ‘functioning’ instance of their app. I’ll have to check into it to see if it’s done in a good and useful way. That it worked means Boo’s happier. That’s important.

Still snapping pics happily – like the above. Beautiful interior for sale, have obedience to the word, full gospel church. As opposed to perhaps the not so beautiful interior, that’s not for sale, at a less than obedient word chooser at the half gospel church? Hmmm…

been pondering – as I tend to do – the times we’re living in, the times we’ve lived through, how time passes and how I’m having concerns as to how to respect the past, live in the present, and look to the future. You know, living life in other words. In other worlds? Hmmm…

In my blue room, U2 speaks of, I drift away.

‘Tis September once again, apparently my blog here was perused by 90 peeps on the 11th. Hell, I didn’t even visit here. Thought about it. Wanted to feel the surge of … emotion? Turmoil? Tumultuous chaos masquerading as importance. Instead, passing on even Patriot Day brownies, I moved furniture around to crush the inertia that had left me feeling uninspired and though I had John in the Morning to gently bump me along an anniversary no one wants to celebrate cracks showed up when I heard the local college station play This Year by our beloved John Darnielle/the Mountain Goats. It was unexpected and welcome and startling and caused me to cry. I truly hope if you recollected those terrible times past you were able to find comfort in your life today. Or at least a good song to shatter into a million razor edged pieces to. Shall we jump in with both feet into the deep end? if so, why?

Why … because it is important to remember. To recall what has changed since then. To perhaps realize we’ve been sheeple all along, and that is not good. Just perhaps. To make sure that when you watch Men In Black you’re caught off guard seeing the twin towers. And that’s good.

Didn’t mean the left turn towards past ruminations. I really just wanted to say hi, flex my fingers, and crow a bit about my success. Lift my head a bit, see the sunshine in the sky.

and lest you suffer with my word torture, let me offer you this:
Let us part the past and step through. Once; more.” Thanks Sars happy birthday Don.

May the days be sunny and nice for the many long days of your life, my friend.
ciao,
