I have spent enough time away from blogging. I haven’t blogged because (a) I have been busy, and; (b) Because I have not been sure what to say.
I’ve spent a great deal of time wondering about this year, which I have to say, has been a very big year. It’s been an awakening year.
I have also spent the last several drives home screaming along to the music played on x96, at 1am when it’s cold, screaming lyrics is a good way to stay warm. The other night, the DJ put on a song I haven’t heard since … well, I don’t know when I last heard it … but it was long ago.
It’s ‘Bad Habit’, by Offspring. By all accounts, a really, really violent song, definitely worth a listen.
Anyway, I digress. I also happened to pick up the new Ray Charles CD. It’s full of duets, it’s his last record before he passed on. It’s pretty good, not necessarily in the vein of what I usually listen to, but I like Ray Charles, he was a good man and a hell of a musician.
Well, I keep trying to think of fitting words for this year, 2004. I don’t have any. I’m not like Amy, I beleive in a God, but I’m not like the rest of y’all. I am just me 🙂
2004 is the year that Marci passed on as well. It’s hard for me to express how I feel about this, I don’t feel like I really knew Marci at all. I could tell that she really was in to her faith, and of course I knew that she was related to Antigone, but I had no idea just what she stood for. Her passing, and the mourning process, is like if somebody told you about a really great place to visit and then told you that it was gone, and you’d never ever see it. I don’t think I can put it better than that.
