Wow! 490-something days since my last blog entry? Sheesh! I've got gobs of blogs...just like I've got gobs of regular paper journals...I think I'm addicted! Which tells me I had better jump on my writerly tendencies...I've got a lot to say and so I guess here's where I will really say it.
I've got a lot of goals for myself...not the least of which are:
1)Get a hybrid car.
2) Get a guitar
3) Study poetry so I can learn to write song lyrics.
4) Get a place for me and Q to just be ourselves and create our ways of doing stuff without a lot of BS from our respective families.
There are dreams I have that may never fully come true...like meeting certain famous people who continually inspire me. But I suppose I'll meet 'em in heaven--maybe. Of course by then, they will have shed their Earthly selves and will have become part of the Pure Energy...and if that Pure Energy is even remotely akin to the joy I feel right now at hearing these folks' inspired words and music, then perhaps it will not matter that I never got to know them while here on Earth...
...besides...two of them have made me their MySpace friends--and I guess that's as close as I can get to knowing them in person.
Yet, there's something to be said for being able to speak with such people in person and telling them to their face that they're some of the coolest, most wonderful people on the planet, just because they've created such wonderful works and have therefore inspired a lot of people.
But how can you put into words such strong, ineffable feelings? Even saying things like "I love what you've done for the planet, and so on.." seems a bit superficial, when what you feel in your heart goes much, much deeper than that. I guess that's where music comes in...because music tends to be able to convey things that words alone cannot.
So, I guess it could be said that music is a bridge to the ineffable...the mysterious...the mystical...because you can know something in words...but music helps you KNOW things in your HEART...and the Heart does not need words.
