I’m Waiting for the Sun to go Down

It’s just too hot out there and I’m so happy here, parked in front of the air conditioner. Plus, helicopters have been hovering hovering hovering for hours which means some bad guy is being moved from one place to another, OR, is on the loose, in either case, best to hide out.

I’ve been going through my 2005 posts on Echo in order to describe what my life was like when my choir sang a certain piece, and I can’t wait until I’m done. 2005 was a brutal year for me. The Restless Sleep had come out and was getting great reviews, but my heart was also being so regularly and severely broken I didn’t get much of a chance to enjoy it. Also, Bush was sworn in for the second time, confirming my belief that my fellow countrymen are INSANE, Hurricane Katrina, it was just a awful year.

But all through it I was singing the most beautiful music. I go back through my posts and it’s heartening to see how I still managed to find happiness even while life was beating the crap out of me. So yay me! (Okay, except my poor judgement about that guy. I learned I am not always the best judge of character.)

Looking up at the sky through my beloved Day of the Triffids (gingko) trees.
