My plan had been to really write something of depth in this space today. Thoughts on the mental conditioning we go through in the work place with having people we like come and go from our lives without notice. Thoughts on the energy it takes to keep expanding the bubble of discovery evenly and how/when stasis sets in. But those will have to wait if I want to get anything out into the world. The new term starts on Monday and is de rigueur my day was flooded with folks who seem to be confused that the race starts so soon and they forgot how to tie their shoes.
That leaves time and room for a single line of thought. This week I discovered that the library on campus has five streaming platforms that I can listen to music on and, oh dear reader, I have I been streaming! This led me to some strange places. I am apt for strange anyway, but given access, I go weird right away. Something long on my list to hear and finally heard is Annea Lockwood’s album “A Sound Map of the Hudson River”. This stirred an internal debate in me being that I’m not sure what rules I use to decide what I should offer up for music in this space. Enjoying the sound of water on its journey stuck the discordant note of wanting to share what is in my head but also wanting people to enjoy what I post. I owe both you and I something in this process. If you are interested in the really tall grass of my collection, I just might get that far afield some week. But this is not that week.
