The Evidence Against Me

I was watching the second of Saturday night’s two episodes of Doubt (a series that I found has already been cancelled while putting this post together) when one of the characters did something that was so much like something I’d do – something I’ve done so many times – she said what she really thought at the worst possible time!

All By Himself…

Having spent far more time than I liked on the road feeling stuck and all alone, I might’ve found this video too much of a depressing a reminder of all the time I’ve wasted chasing other people’s dreams. But all thoughts like that vanished very quickly once I started watching! 🙂

Let Me Know When We Get There…

Fink’s “Sort Of Revolution” is one of those songs that just seems to go well with situations of high anxiety and anticipation. I’ve posted shortened versions of it myself, in SG-U: A New Metaphor For The Human Condition? and in Spinning Our Wheels On Spaceship Earth, and it was used again to close out last week’s episode of The Tomorrow People (which I finally got around to watching last night, before laying down for another night of restless sleep).

Anyway, those of you who read yesterday’s 99 Problems… post will understand why I woke up in this morning wishing I could just stay asleep until something worth getting up for happens. I imagine that this song would probably be playing in my head all through that long hibernation…

99 Problems…

It will probably not surprise any of you to learn that the monastic lifestyle I’ve chosen for myself has a most decided downside. But, as much as I’d like to embrace to logic behind this wonderful image my good friend Rincewind posted, I know that logic can hold true only when I am able to return the favor to someone else. No offense to my female readers, but years of waking up alone has left me seeking relief wherever I can find it. Such as venting my angst while rocking to Hugo’s “99 Problems,” which I heard playing last night during the final credits of the movie Fright Night…

Steady State…

Kind of an “Old School” vs “New School” thing… Sitting in the morning sun I’ll be sitting when the evening come Watching the ships roll in And then I watch ’em roll away again… I believe I can see the future ‘Cause I repeat the same routine I think I used to have a purpose…

Man, I Need To Get A Life!

I was really moved by this graphic posted by Don in Massachusetts. That is of course, until I got to the end… At which point I went into a full blown panic, running around checking to make sure my curtains were all closed and that there no hidden cameras anywhere in my apartment! 😯 But…

Animated Reflections 2

As I said in Animated Reflections 1, I have a whole shitload of “reflective images” I’d like to share that I’ve decided to post in 2 parts. This is the 2nd batch… Again, note that some of the GIFs (especially the first one in this batch!) take longer to cycle through than the WP slide…

Animated Reflections 1

Wow! 17 days since my last post. I really wish that I could offer up a sensible “excuse” for my absence but suffice it to say that, with all the crazy crap roiling around in my head, I haven’t been anything like a happy camper. And the worst part is my inability to convert what’s…

Perspective… Restored!

“Loving can cost a lot but not loving always costs more, and those who fear to love often find that want of love is an emptiness that robs the joy from life.” – Merle Shain “Once I knew only darkness and stillness…my life was without past or future…but a little word from the fingers of…
