My latest obsession: DANDELIONS! Why? Who knows? It's a frakkin' weed!! And I love the end stage...the puffy, white, blowy things...much more than the beautiful yellow flower stage. Again....why? You got me! Maybe it's a metaphor, or maybe the way I feel about myself? Anybody?

I've been stuck in the 60s (and early to mid 70s) lately, it seems. Listening mostly to music from that era, watching old TV shows and movies that were made back then, and even wearing my tie dyes most of the time! LOL! Nothing wrong with it, I suppose. There were some GREAT shows and clothes from the psychedelic era and we all know how much the music rocked. Even so, I think I had an epiphany about my sudden complete obsession with that point in history. I think it's because that was back when I was still full of hope and idealism, and still believed in faith and love. I'm trying to recover the "old" me. (Or rather...the YOUNG me!) When listening to that music, my head goes back to a happier time and place, and I still feel like things will all turn out ok....or at least I can escape from what the reality of my life is, anyway. Sucks being old sometimes, but on the other hand, I am sooooooooo glad that I had that era the first time around to be my holiday in my mind now in 2012!!!

This being "Resurrection Week," I thought it might be a good time to post *something!* I've been so remiss in sharing anything here.
Honestly, it's not that I haven't had anything to say....I have plenty. BUT: I've always been, in the past, a "glass 3/4 full person." However, lately, my glass has been practically evaporated dry, and I really don't see the need to bring the negativity and broken heartedness to a public forum. So......there it is.
Having said that, I've had a pretty nice, low-key day. I've been listening to the Children of Nuggets box-set and enjoying the cloudy day. I love this sort of music (Paisly Underground) and I think that right now it is good for me because it takes me to a neutral place in my head where there is nothing but music, but no life associations to sadden me!! Now: who wants to join me in starting the fund for the original Nuggets box-set????
