Another Peaceful Monday
It's Monday again, which doesn't mean much to me anymore, but to all those still in the workforce, it's back to the salt mines. I still feel a twinge of Mondayness, and thus empathy for those still battling it out at work. For the most part, though, it's history. And as the years go by(only 3 so far), it will become ancient history.
There was a fellow guitarist in the audience yesterday. I think he and his wife were the audience, at least for a while there. He'd been wanting to retire for the past 4 or 5 years- that's when the countdown starts- and was happy to say that he'd done it this May. And I was happy for him.
Started working up Christmas songs last night. Not much of an undertaking, since most of them are in your head(someplace)and thus can be retrieved. And I like the songs, always have. Not much drudgery to it..
I even put one up on YouTube. A Christmas Song,by Mel Torme. It has slightly tricky changes in the bridge, and sometimes boggles the memory. More Christmas songs to come, most likely.
Other than that, it's a clouds n' sun kinda day out there which could go in either direction or just stay in the middle. Nice and rested, though I could have used another half-hour or so of slumber. Still, I was out like a light.
Time for that second cup of Morning Joe. Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. Happy Monday. Or at least a tolerable one. More later.
