“We are golden.” — Joni Mitchell

Right.  I woke up at 5:00pm this morning.  True story.  It’s 8:30pm now, and I’m excited to still have half the morning ahead of me.  I have a meeting tomorrow at 2:00pm, though, and a little extrapolation suggests I will be fast asleep just then.  The world is so inconvenient.

Listening to an old favorite of mine:

We really are star-dust, eh?  Wait, how can an atom just stay the same for eternity?  That doesn’t seem reasonable, but if they do reproduce, or in some way re-fresh themselves every so often, where does the energy come from, and where does it go?  There is so much, even about ourselves, that is beyond our understanding.

“I feel like I’m a cog in something turning.  Maybe it’s the time of year, or maybe it’s the time of man – I don’t know who I am, but life is for learning.”

Peace and love.

that’s how you let the beat build …

the beat goes boom … ba boom ba boom … boom … ba boom ba boom … it goes boom … ba boom ba boom …

i love how he bounces in and out of this and that, using his voice both musically, and counter-musically, as he does the same with the other elements.  so creative, and he has an undeniable natural gift for giving his rhyme a voice in the rhythm of the music and using it to make his words dance.  boom … ba boom ba boom.
