For those of you asking and/or wondering--I'll be okay. Rough few days. I'm processing. I might post about some of it soon, but there are people who need to be part of that decision, people with whom I need to speak at length before I know whether or not that story belongs on this blog. But thank you for caring. And a huge, huge thank you to all the many friends and family members who have been reaching out to me the last couple of days. DraftQueen, Heidi, and Arby in particular got me through a very rough afternoon and evening yesterday, and Heidi brought me a touch of balance today as well. I <3 you all! In the meantime, I'm sharing my latest obsession:
My darling DraftQueen, who has become a very good friend in practically no time at all even though we've never met in real life (though the phone calls are fun!), has been sending me some excellent alternative music with which to entertain myself. She has a ridiculous background with music and seems to know everyone (she even went on the road with--er, a famous band that she won't allow me to mention because she's all about flying incognito) and therefore has much to share.
This one song she sent me is called "Doll Faced Vulture" by EmptySelf, and I cannot stop listening to it. It's like being on crack, or how I imagine it might be if one was addicted to crack, as I have never actually tried the stuff. Or maybe meth. I don't know.
Which, now that I think about it, perhaps is not the best simile, since the song is not actually destructive and won't destroy my body and soul. Unless there's something DraftQueen isn't telling me.
I know this won't be everyone's cup of tea (Grandma, you can pretty much move on as if you never received this post), but you never know...maybe you'll become addicted too!
I found a nice clear version on YouTube for your listening pleasure. (I have to figure out how to get videos on here. No luck so far.)
