Thanks for the cheer-up guys...you all really are the best :)
I'm back in the saddle, writing wise, and it feels good in an off-key, I'll make it sound good later kind of way. I went out and bought one of those writing books on getting up the gumption to start new projects, and the threat of having to read it drove me back to my laptop in a way I never would have guessed! The only thing I dread more than writing drivel, it turns out, is reading other people's opinions on how I can generate more such drivel, and how necessary and important my drivel is. I don't disagree, but it makes very dull reading. God willing, I won't ever read that book, I'll just keep typing frantically, year after year, trying to avoid it :) (Probably not what the author had in mind, but I take solace in knowing her commission is the same whether I crack the binding or not.)
Two other things chimed in to pick me up off my duff this week:
We rented the movie Little Miss Sunshine the other night, and let me tell you, Miss Olive (pictured above) has changed my outlook on life (not to mention dance and fashion....) forevermore. If you haven't seen it, get thee to the theater ASAP. I almost maybe wet my pants while watching the closing scene.
And I downloaded "Best of Disco" on iTunes. I defy anyone to be depressed while singing, I love the nightlife, I got to boogie, on the disco arrrrrraaaahhhh Oh yeah...
I'll leave you with that audio-image :)
