Bump And Grind

It was a busier day than I intended it to be. My daughter is sick or teething or sick,or sick of teething. It really doesn’t matter, all I know is that I got about 3.5 hours of sleep last night and somehow I am still awake now. I am tired, but lost in thought.

Jack is a dreamer and tonight is a night in which I have turned off the more serious part of my brain and am just listening to music and getting lost in memory and fantasy.

I was going to put up an elaborate post about my thoughts but I don’t have it in me, so instead allow me to share a list of music that helps to illustrate what I am thinking. These are some of my favorite songs. The list is incomplete, but it is a good start.

At a later point in time I may weave a tale using the lyrics of these songs to tell the story.

    Looking at your list I think you’d really like Springsteen,s latest Devils and Dust. Try “All I’m Thinkin’ About” or “Leah”. Nice variety of artists.

    Music is a passion of mine.

    That has got to be one of the most diverse, eclectic song lists I’ve ever seen.
    And incredibly impressive! Your taste reflects a melancholy romantic with an astoundingly open mind.
    (I don’t charge extra for the musical tarot reading.)
