Another Peaceful Monday
Another peaceful Monday. Another beautiful bright sunny day. I left the news alone for a day, and there was another shooting. Las Vegas this time. Don't know the particulars, will have to catch up later.
In Samland, a lazyass Monday. In bed around 1:20, up at around 9:30. It's now just after eleven, and I'm still waking up! I have the world's slowest metabolism for the first couple hours I'm awake. Thank God for caffeine..
Reading The Communist Manifesto. Not a lot of reading, as it's essentially a pamphlet, but a lot is packed into its few pages. I agree with the problem- that is, that it is a problem- but not necessarily his solutions.
Still letting his ideas digest. As far as basic information: names, dates and so forth, I have a pretty retentive mind(especially for 63, I like to think!). Those things stick, even when I don't want them to. But understanding ideas, concepts, takes more time and effort on my part. Gotta let it all roll around in my head for awhile.
Music News. I've been in a bit of a slump lately with my playing. I don't seem to be as sure-footed as I was. The time is basically good, but there are a few stumbles. But slump or not, I'm still working on it. There are a couple new things on YouTube you might like.
I lost one subscriber, don't know who. Down from 33 to 32 now. When that happens, I always ask myself, 'what am I doing wrong?' 'Maybe nothing at all. Maybe it has more to do with that individual than with you or your musical wares', I tell myself.
But regardless of my subscription count, I'm always thinking of how I can improve things. Band-in-a-box is probably one of the better solutions. Just gotta get up off some money and get me one.
For right now, the only acquisition I need is more coffee. Cup #2 of morning Joe. As ever, thanks for reading, whoever-you-are. Happy Monday to you, if that's not too much of a contradiction in terms. More later.
