Just Blathering


From Blogizdat LJ:



Woke up feeling wretched today, with a blistering-red sore throat, some kind of bronchial infection, and that general achiness and malaise that comes with it all.

I hate this.

Random Thoughts


From Blogizdat Livejournal:



My dad died 23 years ago, yesterday, and I still miss him as intensely today as I did when he died, just not quite as often, and I think I miss my little sister - who died on July 28, 1966 - even more.

+++++


I took AE to camp today, the first time she'll have been gone for a whole week, without family - she's growing up way too bleeping fast - and I'm already dreading the day I have to send her off to college.

+++++

Writing


From Blogizdat LJ:



See, I have a head chock-full of thoughts that I'd be loathe to write, even under a pseudonym, but I have to wonder how I would write if I weren't bound by decorum, common decency and courtesy for others.

I mean, it really goes to the question of artistic honesty, doesn't it? Oh sure, it worked for Henry Miller and Anais Nin, up to a point, in that they would write of things most others dare not whisper, but most of us don't want to hear the truth, indeed, we *want* to be lied to.

Just Blathering


From Blogizdat LJ:



I have a million things running around my head at the moment, and what keeps coming to mind are song lyrics. You know the ones, they serve as markers for the times in life: summer camp, first kiss, graduation, first job, big heartache, baby's birth. For me, they all have songs that go with them.
