Vinum Rastafario

Mood: frustation (earlier in the day)

I needed a whole bottle tonight to take away my frustrations of the day...mainly from the idiot who hit my car today! It was nothing major-so far and thank goodness it was not my fault. Even more disheartening was that I had just left my massage therapists' office. So much for the wonderful day I was having. It's been one of those weeks! Very much looking forward to the holiday weekend but now another worry...another hurricane possibly heading our way! I think that calls for another trip to liquor store to stock up on more wine!

Vinum restlessness

Wine glass empty again! Need to go out and get another bottle or two but so tired AND restless. Made it through another week of registration at work but 2nd week is taking its toll AND I found out that I"m working tomorrow/Sunday. Still trying to unwind from working today. On the other hand, the paychecks will be nice and the money will definitely come in handy as I've still got some unfinished projects on the house. Listening to music by Ottmar has been a welcomed reprieve.

Happy Feather Friday!

Been working long days and nights the past few days! I'm so excited that I don't have to work tonight/Friday evening but do have to work tomorrow/Saturday morning. Next week looks to be an even longer week as we near the start of another semester in academia. Driving home last night the near full moon was glorious. Hopefully tonight and tomorrow, I can catch it rising.

The Reach

Music: The Reach, Dan Fogelberg

In Memory of Dan Fogelberg

as today would've been his 57th birthday

and he was taken far too young.

Thankfully, his music lives on.

The following quote is taken from his website.

Every human being on this earth is born with a tragedy, and it isn't original sin. He's born with the tragedy that he has to grow up. That he has to leave the nest, the security, and go out to do battle. He has to lose everything that is lovely and fight for a new loveliness of his own making, and it's a tragedy. A lot of people don't have the courage to do it.

Helen Hayes (1900 - 1993)

9/23 – 10/22

You'll finally be able to get comfortable with the changes that have been going on

...hmm doesn't explain why I woke up @4:30 this morn and why I coudn't go back to sleep.

Ok-so maybe after today's numeric event, I'll get comfortable with the changes in my life.

Flamenco Sketches

Music: Kora/River of Stars, Ottmar Liebert

Mood: Happy (home on the Tuesday afternoon thanks to Edouard).

Drinking: Tomato juice (my new fav bev...thought about adding vodka but didn't)

Here it is Tuesday afternoon and so far so good from the storm. I couldn't sleep last night in anticipation of what today might bring but thankfully just much needed rain and a chance to try and get caught up on some unpacking...just as soon as I get off this computer! Been blasting iTunes today and the beautiful Flamenco Sketches by Miles Davis was playing previously. The man was a master!

The dog days of summer are upon us with August here. The heat and humidity have been oppressive but we're getting a nice reprieve today thanks to the storm.

Ok, time to light some more candles, turn off the 'puter off, pump up the volume, brew some afternoon tea and get on a tear of cleaning out some of this clutter in my computer room. Hopefully the rain will let up a bit this eve as I'd like to take a quick walk around the neighborhood.
