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.
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?
