So, for those of you who still enjoy sausages after seeing what goes into them, I thought I’d share what brought my last post bubbling up into the light of day.
It was a couple of weeks ago; three or four at most.
On Friday I got the news that a friend of mine, one I’ve known for twenty years, died.
On the Saturday of that same weekend, I found out that my grandfather had a mini-stroke and had to have surgery. He’s 84.
Other things happened, which, due to concern for other people’s privacy, I will not go into.
Nevertheless it was a royal, flaming, screaming bitch of a weekend.
And pretty much the strictures of the world in which we lived expected me to go on, to continue to perform as of nothing had happened.
As you might have guessed, that didn’t sit too well with me.
And, as opposed to just dumping my shit on you – which is not the purpose of this blog – I took some time to ruminate on my situation and see if I could dig out any larger, perhaps universal truths.
Time pt 1 is what I came up with…
…Well it’s part of it anyways.
Thanks for listening.
