My Many Interests

What to do, what to do?

I always have something to say and I wish that I liked typing more, but at the end of the day I just can't seem to put it on paper. So, I thought I would do a little technique that my 9th grade English teacher had us perform. I'll write for 10 minutes every other day on nothing in particular, just write. That should start creative juices flowing after 25 years.

There used to be a time when I could sit down and draw a picture, write a poem, or tell a story right off the top of my head and now I can't tell you what has irked me today or what really floats my boat. Maybe, in the days ahead I'll reveal a revelation (was that a redundant way of putting it? I don't know but I bet my teacher from 25 years ago would.) Who knows, I might even get some paragraphs in there. And I invite you to give me a topic or tell me how your day was spent. I'm always open for suggestions.

I may just turn this into a music post, because I love me some music. For starters, the video below is a great song (or I might just like the girls in it.) The band is the Fratellis and the song is "Chelsea Dagger." Check them out and let me know what you think.
