Rounds of a Day

Striped Petunia, Balcony Garden, Hagerstown, Maryland, July 9, 2012.

As most do, this day started with Facebook, politics, and the middle east and other conflict chatter, ever stimulating territory, rather like the family table if you’ve had a family spoiling to fight (er, um, “discuss things”, albeit with a certain viciousness) first thing in the morning.

Some good may come of it, I suppose . . . serves for training, I guess.

In any case, a cup of coffee and conflict-oriented chatyping, first thing, and, compulsive me, a post to my virtually unread blog comes of it: “FB Excerpt Mentioning Facsimile Bipolar Political Sociopathy“.

Mindspill!  All that.

On to webreading (don’t mind my coining–I am merely Germanicizing): for the OA&L post, catch up on the mentality of interest with the post-supporting perusal of news copy on Nidal Hassan, John Allan Muhammad, Faisal Shahzad — and then on to the latest in outrage: within the past week, a woman accused of adultery (probably raped) and executed by the Taliban, all recorded and just hitting the news this morning.

Of course, I don’t want this blog to be about that.

If you’re “tracking” such conflict, you know the news — and if you’re not, well, don’t you worry your pretty little head over it.

Life’s short!


Started memorization of old folkie staples — “I’ve Got a Name” and “A Whiter Shade of Pale”.

The weekly gig: Tuesday nights, 7-10 p.m., The Georgia Boy Cafe at Park Circle, 325 Virginia Avenue, Hagerstown, Maryland.

I know I need new material and am now most inclined to scrape into mid-20th Century southern music history as well write my own songs to get it.


The glory of my day: completed a set of a dozen interpretive prints from Antietam National Battlefield Park.

That at the top of this post: fast snapshot with a pretty good Nikon.


Exciting day, eh?
