YES WE CAN!

For those of you that remember, I am in full swing with the likely the most insane writing project I have ever undertaken. I am and will be out of touch, unable to be reached and generally under a rock until the conclusion of said project at midnight on November 30th. The subject matter I chose to write has proved harder than expected but I assume the journey is what it is about really. Hopefully I will learn something profound that I can share later.

I must pause now to declare a great big "WOO HOO" for the victory heard 'round the world last night. It was good for the first time in eight years to cry tears of joy rather than disbelief. While I am always vocal in my opinions, it was nice to see that people woke up, participated and committed to change from the way things have gone before. I am hopeful now for the future of my children in a way I had lost over the last administration. My prayers are with the new President elect as he begins the daunting task of cleaning up the world wide missteps and chaos facing him this morning.

God Bless America.

Back to previous programing. Check out the new Weezer, my current writing sound track of choice. Below is my new favorite jam. Catch you on the flip side of November!



Thought I knew
WEEZER

Sorry
About my past life
Sorry
But we just missed
Sorry it had to end up
Like this

Sorry
If I caused you pain
Sorry
I forgot your name
Sorry
But you left me out
In the rain

Thought I knew
You better than
Thought I knew
Your intentions
Thought I knew
But I didn't have
A clue
Not a single damn thing
Was true

Sorry
If I caused you harm
Sorry
I'm no good luck charm
Sorry
You didn't end up
In my arms

Thought I knew
You better than
Thought I knew
Your intentions
Thought I knew
But I didn't have
A clue
Not a single damn thing
Was true

Now that I
World's gone down
We've traded away
Blew out the spark
And now we're left
With broken hearts
Tryin' to find
A new place to start

Thought I knew
You better than
Thought I knew
Your intentions
Thought I knew
But I didn't have
A clue
Not a single damn thing
Was true

Love Weezer... ;)

The results of our election have had me giddy and emotional for days. I am so proud of my country. They chose a good man.

Good luck with NaNoWriMo! I guess you must be about half way through now?

Hello, nanaopromomopo is over. Can we expect a report soon? Perhaps a small sample of your endeavours? A new poem? Some evidence of your continuing existence on this our only planet? We all miss you and we had a vote and I drew the short straw to be the one to come over and wake you up from your word hangover with a gentle poke in the ribs, but only because our bloggolives do not feel complete without you.

It ain't November anymore. Come out of hiding. Also, we still haven't done lunch. Heh.
